Chic vs. Cheap: Deer Antler Heads

The Rural Luxe look is back again for the Autumn and Winter 2013 season, bigger and bolder than ever. If you remember last year this look became very popular, mixing rustic textures with a chic, updated country look. Think bringing the outdoors in and giving it a luxurious twist. Part of that look focuses on country or woodland animals adorning all kinds of home accessories. Owls, foxes, and of course deer are all very popular so I’ve done a little hunting around for some fabulous deer heads. If you love this accessory (and I do!) then you can hunt around and find a huge variety of styles from wool deer antlers to those made of colourful cardboard.

The two I’ve chosen to showcase today are a little more pared down and minimal and would make a fantastic statement in your rustic luxe look living space.

Firstly we have these amazing Steel Mounted Scottish Red Deer Antlers by Ranachan Designs and available at Not on the High Street. These incredible Red Deer antlers are sourced responsibly in the Highlands of Scotland and come from Ranachan Hill. Having graced the walls of many homes for hundreds of years, Ranachan Designs are updating the look and adding a modern, contemporary twist. Aren’t they stunning?

 

Alternatively, if you don’t want to part with that much money, why not look at these Decorative Deer Antlers from Cox and Cox. A great way to bring that rustic outdoors look into your home as part of the rustic luxe theme. A very similar look yet at a fraction of the price.

What do you think? Do you like the Rustic Luxe look? Would you put some deer antlers on your wall?

Chic vs. Cheap has me thinking about what we spend on our home accessories, and how we can budget in order to afford a few little beauties like this. I love the idea of this online bank account with Think Money where money for your bills is set aside so you always know how much spare cash you have to spend. What a great idea! You can feel confident that you can pay the bills and still splurge on your home interiors.

    For our place they are probably a little big and I’m sure I would forever be catching myself on the antlers when walking past saying ‘bloody thing’ 😉

    I don’t think it takes money to get the home looking great, its more of an eye for classy detail with a natural skin, this is what it should be like through all homes, its just were not all the same …but im with you, i like it in this real world. Thank you for sharing these

    Interesting article. I grew up with the whole deer head plus the antlers on our wall. I think the difference that made it better was that it was a deer that my Dad got while hunting.
    I do however really like the antler chandeliers. Have you seen those?
