Move over, pot pourri, there’s a NEW accessory in town and it is SKULLS! Why so macabre you might ask? We could ask you the same thing, but that’s probably why you’re already here, right? Skulls aren’t just something for Halloween, they’re an integral part of nature and human design. What makes them cool is the dark and twisted way you put them in your home. Hey, have we mentioned how much we like you lately? So let’s get on with it, skulls are amazing and we’re going to show you how to use them in your home’s design!
Hanging giant pieces on your barren walls is a great way to add some kick ass skulls to your home. Try to go for pieces that incorporate your colour scheme to tie everything together nicely. If you’re going for a giant piece of art, make sure it’s balanced on the other side with another giant thing, like an armoire or a huge fucking sculpture. Framing is also super important, don’t let those canvases hang all naked up there! Dress them up with something even more fancy like a custom black lacquer Victorian frame! Another option would be a small piece in your bathroom, or maybe as part of a gallery wall to break things up a bit. It’s your home! YOU DECIDE!
Beetlejuice anyone? Just us? Ok fine. Anyway when you incorporate sculpture into your design it should have a specific purpose, otherwise your home will start to look cluttered. How about this amazing deer skull? (Didn’t think we’d bring our animal friends into this eh?) You can go authentic or vegetarian with this option and we’ll help you out either way! There’s a really sincere element of nature in this type of accessory that we love. You could also try something like this, which brings a completely different side of nature into things. Hey man, geology is friggin beautiful.
Knife blocks have never been cooler. What about an egg timer? Or finish off your kitchen cupboards with these flipping amazing handles. Hand towels… the list goes on! Skulls are literally never ending. We’ll even take you shopping to find some if you want! Hey, that’s the most practical decision we’ve made all day!
Good luck……and DON’T fuck it up!
It’s pretty easy to go overboard with kitschy things like skulls, so aim for that age old rule, less is more. They’ll stand out among the rest of your crap if you feature them in a meaningful way, rather than throwing a bunch of skull shit on the wall and calling it art. You can do this! SKULLS FOREVER!
