Drab or Fab: Animal Sculptures

0

Animal friendly wall sculptures are hitting the design scene in paper-mache, resin and even felt!   They’re definitely easier on the eyes (and the nerves) than the real thing, but I haven’t really heard any feedback about them from anyone.  I like how they have modernized this traditional rustic element, and I can appreciate the detail and uniqueness of the objects, but I’m still not sure if I would want one on my wall.  Although, now that I think about it, those felt ones are pretty cute!  What do you think, are animal sculptures drab or fab?

I find that my personal design style is always changing to some degree, but I would have to say that I am a Country girl at heart.  I love the comfort, coziness, and relaxed feel that it embodies.  I do love to add a bit of Modern elements into the mix to make it more current.

    Those are really swell. I especially love the newsprint rhino and the felt bunny. What a hoot!

    I’m not sure about those. The only one I kind of like is the newsprint rhino.

    I think they would look better with some more color. Maybe that’s the look but I think it’s very dull.
