Design: African Fusion

Hello Made By Girl readers! It's Brooke from the Modern Sophisticate again.
One of my favorite tricks designers use to add some fun and whimsy to a space is to incorporate animals into the decor. Adding a dog statue to a side table or little leopard print to a chair can really do wonders.
 
Trust me. It works every time.  

Lately, I have been inspired by more exotic animals like rams and peacocks, which have been styled to be more glam than safari. Here are my picks for an African fusion look:

  1. I am a little crazy about using feathers and about DIED when I saw that feather chandelier. I really wanted it but it was way out of my price range so I pulled a DIY on that sucker! Here's my link:

  4. I think if the horn is faux than its fine. buying real horn items should be banned to discourage hunters who kill animals for them. The same goes for fur.
