Hello there, it’s Courtney! So, I have a thing for funny animals. I love them in real life (except for sloths, never sloths), but I also love them in patterns and decor for the home. I also love them when they wear sweaters. Am I weird? Yes. But do I feel a little better about my weirdness when I see that Anthropologie, West Elm, Rifle Paper Co, and World Market understand me and incorporate animals into their products? Yes I do.
I love that my mom always has always decorated with a few quirky animals in her home. It makes everything a little less serious. My mom and I are similar. We laugh a lot and see the humor in life whenever possible. We’ve been known to text each other funny looking animals or post random animal videos on our Facebook on occasion. We know it will make us laugh so hard that the only appropriate response will be the cry laughing emoji. So, it makes sense that we would reflect that humor a bit in our decorating style. You just can’t take everything so seriously.
Like that weird little deer head you’ve probably seen on the wall in my mom’s office. I sit in that corner all the time to work, and it just wouldn’t be the same without that guy above my chair. Like my mom said when we decided to buy him one day, “if it’s wrong, I don’t want to be right”. :)
In what ways do you add lighthearted fun or humor to your decor?
