And whether it's taking inspiration from the outdoors in general, or being playful with natural hues, there is one creature that has been popping up a lot in interiors blogs recently; the stag.
The stag has all the elements necessary for creating a bold impression; an iconic silhouette, rich colouring and the ability to be used in a surprising variety of circumstances.
The classic use of a stag, is (unfortunately for the stag), the use of wall-mounted stag skulls. This can conjure up impressions of stately homes and grand British interiors. However, a few alterations and a touch of imagination can circumvent the dangers of stuffy traditionalism and create a vibrant atmosphere.
If you're really scared about being too conventional, how about diamante-encrusted wall-mounted stag head? By combining the traditional with a bit of celebrity bling, this can make an eye-opening and humorous addition above any mantlepiece. Obviously not for the faint of heart though!
The physicality of a stag's antlers also has an oh-so-tempting functionality. Here, a chic, wooden wall-mounted stag's head is used as a fun tea-towel holder, that can add a touch of humour to a workmanlike kitchen area. Above all, it's about using a traditional feature in new and surprising ways to let your creativity and individuality shine through.
This room design illustrates the fun that can be had in using the traditional stag motif. So in contrast with a formal dining room setting, the bold purple stag wallpaper creates a humorous repeat-pattern effect that adds a playful touch, yet never overwhelms the well thought-out living space.
So if you're looking to bring a bit of the wonder of the great British wild into your home, without actually going out and getting wet, all you need is a little imagination and flair to transform your home into a luxurious rural hideaway.
With the above in mind we created this stag wall sticker which is 1.4m tall by 1.2m wide.
