The Five Minute Room

Create breathing room in just 5 minutes

Animal Fever

I know it’s been a while since my last post, but I’m pretty excited about this one.

While shopping for a recent client, I came across this guy in HomeGoods and knew he needed to live with them. Tall, elegant and yet begging the question, “Is that a Giraffe in your Living Room?” For a young couple he’d be a great conversation piece! So I bought him and named him Bobo.


Since then, I’ve seen Giraffes popping up everywhere. So much so, that I feel safe in officially naming them the animal mascot of the Fall 2013 season. Here are a couple more sightings from New York and Asheville, NC.

So what does this mean for your space? Don’t be afraid to try something different. Maybe animal print fabrics aren’t your thing, but don’t disregard the fun and character that an animal sculpture can give an otherwise traditional room. Keep it entertaining and don’t be afraid to step outside the box. You just might find you have a “wild” side.
