I really enjoy the house decorating process. There’s just something about taking a blank room and making it your own; finding all the little pieces that create the bigger picture. It’s like a game – the bonus being that you get to enjoy the end result every day! And some of those “games” prove to be more challenging than others. The challenge can come from an odd room layout, lack of inspiration or having a husband with his own vision (I didn't think they actually cared what the house looked like as long as we wives were happy...Lies!)
But now that we are looking for a bigger house, my husband has started listing some demands of his own towards the design plan. I’m not sure I like where this is headed. Well, I have to say, I am partly to blame. I knew we would cross this bridge one day and right now is that day. Background: my husband is an avid sportsman. He has a strong love for anything related to hunting & fishing. Unfortunately, along with that love comes “trophies.”
The trophy that he is currently petitioning to be added to the décor would be a deer head mount… I don’t mean antlers that I can lay out on a coffee table or even an antler mount that I can tuck on some hidden, not-frequently-seen wall -- I mean a deer head. Here’s your mental picture: a rabid deer ran straight into a wall. Displayed on my living room wall would be the head [the eyes follow you] and somewhere on my deck, the rest of bambi would be hanging out.
