It started with our Adler Giraffe Lamp in the front room, then the nursery fell into a Giraffe theme. For quite a while now my husband and I love giraffes as a decorating motif. Clearly we’re not overly obsessive about it, but we seem naturally drawn to any giraffe accessory, and lately (as previously observed in a wall hook round-up) I’m seeing lots popping up in the background of room designs and as fun home decor pieces & art.
Perhaps my affinity for giraffes stem from my being 6ft tall and somehow I (we) both relate to the tall and slightly awkward creatures (I had a Spanish boyfriend who used to call me “Giraffeee”, so the comparison is a long-standing one). I think birds/swallows/any fowl sitting on a wire/owls/any woodland creatures, especially squirrels have had quite an extensive limelight…I guess I’m just happy to see giraffes leave the nursery and make their majestic debut.
Will the giraffe ever reach Faux Trophy status? Only time will tell. In the meantime here’s a quick roundup of some lovely giraffe decor & accessories. (BTW, I’m calling the Elephant as making a comeback soon too.)
