Crazy or Cool?


My foyer is done being painted and I’m in the process of decorating it for the big reveal!  A little secret, I’m actually rushing to get it done because a local magazine is doing a spread on our house and I am trying to get everything ready before they come!

One question for you guys, though.  I bought this quite large (14″ x 18″) cast iron longhorn skull for $80 at Home Goods and it was originally over $200 by Broyhill.  I kind of love it, but don’t know if it’s bordering on crazy.

What do you guys think?  Is it crazy?  or is it cool?

    If you love it, it is the coolest thing ever. Also it’s nice to add something funky to a space. It makes life more interesting. Good luck with your magazine shoot.

    I agree with Elana – if you love it, go with it! Personally, I think it’s very fun!

    the only way I could love it more is if it was on a wall in my house!

    Cool, definitely cool, imagine when spring rolls around and you can put a flower crown on that babies head! Or some ornaments on the horns? LOVE it! Totally jealous!

    I’ve had my eye on something similar and my husband thinks I’m nuts. I also know that it’s a bit of a trend but I just love love love it! And that’s all that matters!

    Totally COOL!!!

    Cool. For that price, it’s worth it– it won’t be in style forever, but it’s a good, on-trend pop of fun.

    I just looked at that this weekend at my local store! Totally love it.

  16. Cindi January 13, 2014 at 1:06 pm #

    I like it and I like the white and gold but if it doesn’t go with your space being cast iron a very easy paint change! Maybe understated, maybe even more funky!

  17. Liz January 13, 2014 at 1:21 pm #

    I love it!

    It’s both, but that’s why it’s awesome. I mean, why not, right?!

  19. YOLONDA WASHINGTON January 13, 2014 at 3:29 pm #

    I saw it yesterday at Home Goods…and I like it. Go for it! Maybe in the foyer or kitchen?!

  20. Heather Knowles January 13, 2014 at 4:11 pm #

    VERY cool!!!!

  21. ashley January 13, 2014 at 4:17 pm #

    Absolutely cool! Love the gold horns. It is interesting and different without being overly distracting! Great find.

    I love it! The last cabin I stayed at in the mountains actually had something really similar, surprisingly. And I really liked how it was a more artistic version of the real thing, because sometimes the real heads scare me haha! xo

    Crazy cool :) I say go for it!

    Cool! Go for it!

    I think a home can have different personalities. All for mixing “crazy” with “cool.” I do it all of the time.

    Look forward to hearing what path you chose.

    It is a little bit of both, in a good way. Congrats on the spread by the way. I have a saying that I try to stick to: Trust the Gut. If your gut tells you to do it, do it, no matter what the price tag or label may say. I can’t wait to see the end result!

    I bought my husband a resin moose head for Christmas to hang in the study so I’m kinda biased!

  29. Lauren Ashley January 13, 2014 at 11:27 pm #

    COOL!!! No doubt.

  30. Alana at Havenly January 14, 2014 at 10:56 am #

    Definitely cool– though perhaps as a Texan, I’m biased! xx
