No cabin is complete without an antler or two. That does not mean your cabin needs a rack above each window, complete with stuffed bust. While this is totally acceptable, it is also possible to incorporate antlers tastefully into your cabin decor.
Why Decorate With Antlers?
Antlers bring a taste of the wild into your cabin. Whether you are a hunter or nature enthusiast, antlers are a beautiful way to bring some of the outdoors in.
How Much Is Too Much?
The only person who gets to decide if there are too many antlers in your cabin is you. Hunters may want to display the season’s trophies on every wall. Nature lovers might line the mantle with sheds. Other cabin owners may simply provide their dogs with an all natural, antler chew.
For those who wish to incorporate antlers tastefully into cabin chic, there are several more options.
Antler Decorating Ideas
Forget about just hanging a rack over the door. Greet your guests with an antler coat rack. Their jackets will look appropriately rustic on the fabric friendly hooks.
Set the mood with an antler lighting scheme. Try an antler wall sconce or an elegant antler lamp.
Having a dinner party? Show off your wine selection with an antler wine rack. Capture the rustic feeling with your antler candle holders. The candles will illuminate the subtle shine of your antler flatware and kitchen utensils. Pair all this with a rustic table, and your guests will leave with plans to build cabins of their own.
For the more reserved, leave the racks off the wall and instead acquire some genuine antler art. Antler art is a great way to add a subtle rustic flair without overdoing it.
Shed Your Worries
Cabins that incorporate an antler or two help you relax after a long week. Take off for a few days and escape into your own rustic paradise. You will feel cozy and warm with your antler fireplace accessories, yet still close enough to nature to enjoy the thrill of the wild.
