monday musings: animals in decor

Lovelies! How I missed you over the weekend. How was it? Mine was super busy chocked full of projects, fun and the pleasure of being overserved on Saturday night. Oy. Sunday was definitely a bit of a rough day and I quickly realized I am no longer 20. Sigh. Nothing that a little run for the border (ahem TB) and two naps couldn't fix. Anyhoooo. For those of you who know me, know that I am obsessed with animals. Obsessed. Obviously dogs are my number one jam, but aside from dogs, I do not play favorites. Animals have become my favorite go to accessory to funk up a space and give it a unique feel. When done right, it is really quite glamorous. Just wait for it.

How hilarious is this?!?! Honestly. Somewhat obsessed with Bailey's "Smoking Pussy." Cat! Cat, girls. It gives her gorgeous traditional bedroom the perfect amount edge that it needed.

I saw this bedroom last week and have been in love ever since. Notice the framed camel happening here. Well at least it looks like a camel with subtle humps. Yes. That is what it is. A subtle humped camel. Dear.

Love the equestrian theme happening here. A gallery wall of different proportions of a horse's body. Also, notice the stool in the space also has horse legs. Love it.

On to the animal statues in a space. Not sure I will ever tire of this trend. I spy a cat, dog and elephant all in one bookcase styling. It works. 
And again in the same space, animal art AND a chinoiserie dog. Such a stately room and this definitely adds some novelty to the vignette.

A dog lamp?!?! Done. Again, great colorful and inviting area but totally topped off with none other than an animal. Kind of a strange looking dog but I do not discriminate.

Ahhhh. This galley kitchen is melting my heart. All of the details and the monochromatic palette have me swooning. Ummm horse statue? Yes. Adore it.

And a little tiny horse statue used for coffee table styling. Perfection.

Big week happening here my loves. Tomorrow is the last day for Courtney and my Summer Series. We are finishing off with a DIY. Watch out. Also, the start of a 6 week renovation project that lots of my bloggy friends are also participating in. Not to mention a special guest. AND do not forget to enter yourselves into the giveaway of a lifetime, The Furby Furb Giveaway. You will be sorry if you don't. For reals.
