Antler Inspiration

I got a hold of these antique antelope horns at auction last week so did a trawl through the internet for a little inspiration on bringing them into a modern interior. Hunting lodge/trophy room not being a look I'd like to go for in my living room. The pictures below are some of my favourites and came from Living Etc. pages on House to Home

The horns are for sale on Donedeal as we speak. Have a lovely weekend.

Chairs etc

I found a little inspiration for some solutions to my excess chair problem if only space was willing.

But for now they'll have to remain in their regimental rows in the loft.

Crate Inspiration

A couple of months ago I bought some vintage crates at auction. Not enough to create a wall of storage like this from Living Etc unfortunately but I did get four similar to the one pictured below.

They were Polish and one of them was dated 1959 so I reckoned they were all around the same date. These crates are my favourite kind of storage, practical and beautiful. I had sometimes seen them used as display in shops but never for sale so I was thrilled to get them at the auction. I managed to part with two since this is supposed to be a business and my "finds" are supposed to be stock so selling half of them was a step in the right direction at least.

The two I sold on Donedeal were bought by the lovely Claire who kindly sent these photos above and below of the crates (adapted with castors) hard at work in her home.
