A bright white faux deer head and playful yellow pillows counterbalance the deep shade of olive on the walls in this transitional bedroom. The pillows differ in pattern for variety yet match in color for fluidity.
Sometimes a sense of humor in an otherwise tailored space can create a not-so-serious feeling. While Chris' bedroom walls are covered in a pinstripe wool menswear suit fabric, the juxtaposition of a white resin moose head against the tailored walls creates a light-hearted element of surprise. Since the wall application set Chris back approximately $1300, he saved on furniture by choosing a vintage wood dresser he scored for $125 at a flea market. Since dark-colored accessories could easily get lost in the navy blue tone of the pinstriped wall covering, bulky ultra-white vases were grouped together to create a strong contrast.
Deer can wipe out a garden overnight, nibbling prize flowers, vegetables and plants. Telltale signs of deer feeding are torn or ragged leaf edges. Deer lack upper incisor teeth, so when they grab a plant, they jerk their heads up to pull a leaf free. This creates torn stems and leaves. Keep deer away from your yard with repellents (Plantskydd works well), an extra-tall fence (8 to 10 feet tall) or a double fence (3 to 5 feet tall, 3 to 4 feet apart). Toss plastic netting over individual plants or flowers you want to protect from browsing.
This contemporary living room features a textured gray wall with mounted animal heads boasting metallic horns. Metallic pendant lights hang low beside the white tufted sofa with nailhead trim. Red, thin-striped pillows bring a splash of color to the room, while faux fur white pillows add a fun texture.
From an icy blue and white color palette to touches of silver and rich, menswear-inspired fabrics, see how a lackluster bedroom gets a winter-inspired makeover full of the season's hottest trends. In this design from Brian Patrick Flynn, a collection of framed artwork and photography is simply leaned against the wall above the entry’s console table. A small table lamp made of mercury glass helps reflect the light it emits once switched on at night. A mirrored console table serves as the base for this lovely white and silver vignette, featuring silver frames, white hydrangeas, silver bird accessories and a white faux deer head.

Another heirloom allium, ‘Nigrum’ has softball-sized, silvery to grayish-white heads with six-petaled florets. Bees and butterflies visit the flowers, but deer tend to leave the plants alone. Expect blooms from late spring into early summer. Allium atropurpureum is also shown here.
