Home Decor | Wildlife Collection

I would describe my interior design style as very eclectic. I like a lot of things in a lot of different colours and styles; not much really ‘matches’ or follows a theme. However, looking around the other day I noticed that without really realising it I have build up quite a collection of wildlife inspired decor. I love animals, so I suppose it is only right that they have began to invade my home. And since we are in rented and not able to have any pets really these little buddies are the best I can do for now.

I thought I’d introduce a few of my animal influences and how I came to own them:

Rubber Duck Collection – Various shops 


I really love these guys – they make me smile every time I catch sight of them when I’m brushing my teeth! I went through a phase of collecting them for a while. I love how colourful they are and they really jazz up our white bathroom. I can’t remember where I got all of them individually but the far right one is from Harrods! So he certainly wasn’t cheap! They are a really good fun decoration though.

Crystal Bird Bedside Lamp -Wilkinson


Again, I bought this when I moved into my place for the first time. It’s sooo pretty,  the crystals are beautiful and it really goes with my vintage theme in the bedroom. Wilko are really good for home and interiors – I seem to remember I picked this up for about £20 and I’ve had it a good few years. It’s really lovely as a bedside lamp too because it gives out a really soft level of lighting, perfect for reading before bed.

Turtle Incense Stick Burner – Gift

Living Room

This was a gift from my mum and I’ve know idea where she got it from but I had to include it in this because it’s just gorgeous. Our living room is majority white and minimalistic (the joys of rented property) but I like to add pops of strong, bright colours to liven it up a bit – see my post on this here. This turtle is perfect because it’s a really nice bright turquoise colour which looks really striking on my white surfaces. I love the turtle too, I’ve been lucky enough to dive with giant sea turtles 3 times in the wild so they are very special to me.

Black and White Ornamental Elephant – Habitat

Living Room

Elephants are a big part of our lives and hold a special place in our hearts and our relationship. Elephants have always been my favourite animal – I spent time in an elephant sanctuary in Thailand with them and have always loved them. I also love what they represent; strength, wisdom and peacefulness. They are such amazing animals. A few years ago, long before we got engaged, Paul and I decided to get a matching tattoo as a symbol of our ‘forever’ commitment and we decided on a beautiful elephant design. So elephants have become an important symbol for us. We got this as a housewarming gift when we moved into our apartment and it’s gorgeous. I love the cream and grey colours, and it makes me smile everytime I look at it.

Elephant and Turtle Cuddly Toys! – Gifts

Living Room

Yes – I’m still a child inside and I still have cuddly toys on display! But these arnt worn out teddies they are ‘luxury’ toys which I have taken really good care of and are used for decorative purposes. They were both gifts – and are my favourite animals! I love the turtle particularly because it’s so colourful and my brother bought it back from Sri Lanka for me.

What kind of home decor style do you like? Do you have much wildlife influence in your home?

    I’m a sucker for animal decor too! Mainly cats as I have 4, I’ve got a few owls as to me they remind me of my nan as she was a wise old bird, I’ve loads cows because they’re my fav animal and foxes are starting to make an appearance as our street is called The Foxholes xx

    I ADORE the rubber duckies! And the turtle incense holder is fab. Like you, my home decor is also a little eclectic. I think it adds a little humour and personality to our interiors, don’t you? Love it. Sue via #BloggersPromoHour
