But I don't care.
Our new house is meant to be the fulfillment of our desire for a "modern ski lodge," and any ski lodge worth its salt involves some mounted animal heads. Preferring not to hang dead creatures on the wall, that means we're going faux. And there's plenty of inspiration out there...

Since I haven't been able to find that gorgeous faux reindeer head from the pic right above, I've had to look all over for the best alternatives. Here are some of my favorites:
Probably my top pick, though hardly a bargain, the big resin moose head from Z Gallerie:
The uber-modern acrylic deer head from A+R Store, also seen in Jenn's swanky Denver ranch:
The more economical cardboard heads from Uncommon Goods:
Anthropologie's newsprint papier-mache version:
More papier-mache, from West Elm:
A more tongue-in-cheek version from Amy Jo Terry on Etsy: (And, of course, I wouldn't actually hang this on our wall, much as I appreciate the cleverness.)
What do you think of the fauxidermy trend? So last year, or going strong?
