Taxidermy. I’ll admit, I never heard the word prior to moving to Texas. It sounds like a disease caused by paying too many taxes. Read my lips, no new Taxidermy! However, living in Texas for almost nine years has made me quite aware of it’s actual meaning. While I do not care for the process of how it is created, I do notice the frequent use of it in decor.
I am a big fan of the dimension that antlers, feathers, and fur have when used in a room. For now, I’ll stick with the faux, but here is a daring mix of all types of taxidermy that will clearly turn heads.
