Home Decorating With Taxidermy


Decorating your home with taxidermy reflects your passion for hunting, fishing and other outdoor activities. Throwing a mounted deer head on the wall is not your only option. Use your trophies in other ways around the house to bring the theme into every room. Tailor the rest of your interior design elements to showcase the taxidermy pieces, making them the focal point of the spaces in which they are displayed.

  • Divide your existing taxidermy pieces by subject. For example, all of your fish mounts can be placed in the bathroom, all of your deer and small game heads can be placed in the living room, and your more extreme hunting trophies can be placed in the "Man Cave" in the basement.

  • Choose different ways to have your catches mounted. For example, have a smaller deer head mounted between trees on a statue or your pike mounted in a 3-D sculpture of river bottoms to design a view of them in the "wild."

  • Use some of the pieces as functional decor when doing home decorating with taxidermy. For example, mount deer antlers for a key holder by the front door or mount a fish on a dish that holds mail.

  • Mix your mounted pieces with other types of decor to add an eclectic feel to your design scheme. For example, surprise guests with a mounted fish in your country bathroom or a large, rustic deer head over a contemporary fireplace.

  • Create furniture elements with your trophies when doing home decorating with taxidermy. Use a stuffed glass encased bear, for example, as the base of a bar in your game room.
