Faux fur pil­lows have long been pop­u­lar on the mar­ket, but what to make of faux taxi­dermy? Choco­late In­te­ri­ors’ Chris­tine Coul­ton says: “Go the faux.”

“They’re dec­o­ra­tive and sculp­tural and look great any­where, even the bed­room. If you’re look­ing for some­thing more than white or black just add colour or a metal­lic fin­ish, maybe a hot pink deer or turquoise bi­son if that is more your style.”

If this is your thing, then you’ll love White Faux Taxi­dermy, which as the name sug­gest spe­cialises in this field, along­side com­pa­nies like Mi­lan Di­rect which of­fer se­lect pieces.

Chris­tine says the trick with this trend is not to over in­dulge.

“I’m a great be­liever in in­di­vid­ual ex­pres­sion. When ap­pro­pri­ate, I like to in­cor­po­rate a hint of what’s in, al­though ul­ti­mately it’s not about repli­cat­ing the lat­est look but personalising a space. If be­ing on trend is im­por­tant to you, then you can’t go past colour and pat­tern as it’s a sim­ple way to in­te­grate what’s in with­out go­ing over­board.’’

It’s heads up for a fab­u­lous fake with Mi­lan Di­rect’s wooden deer head, $139.
