I don’t know what it is — maybe it has something to do with the time of year — but rooms that feature antlers seem to be popping up everywhere I look. I’ve decided to go with it and feature some of them for you here today. Do you use antlers in your interior decor? Or are you someone who is completely opposed to antlers of any kind as a design element?

All Natural

Loving all the natural elements and textures here. | japanesetrash.com

The natural elements — wood, leather, cane — and smart placement of elements in the space make this an inviting room.

Graphic Impact

Bold graphic impact in this bedroom. | japanesetrash.com

Black and white, a graphic print, a hint of baseball leather, and faux antlers all come together in this bold bedroom.

Rustic Contemporary

Great mix of rustic and contemporary. | japanesetrash.com

The mix of rustic and contemporary styles in this kitchen — especially the dark elements playing off the wood tones — is really appealing.

Hunting Lodge Chic

Traditional hunting lodge goes chic. | japanesetrash.com

Everything here just works so well; I’d love to have a place like this as a weekend getaway retreat.

Wow Factor

Tons of appealing elements here. | japanesetrash.com

Just about every element in this winter chalet has great wow factor; I think the stone mantle is my favorite.

It has been a few weeks since I’ve gone through all my bookmarked design sites and pulled interior design ideas and inspiration from them to use on the blog. For the past couple of months, I’ve been posting my own series of entries and relying less and less on what the rest of the interior design blogosphere is doing to generate content on Japanese Trash. And I’m currently working on a new way of focusing my posts around a central idea each week, and I don’t know yet if the concept of Leftovers–something that has been a part of Japanese Trash since the very beginning (the first Leftovers post was on Nov 8, 2010)–will be part of that. So I thought I’d post these latest; who knows, they may be the last.

Terrific glimpse of this space. Wonderful red Chesterfield. | japanesetrash.com

This contemporary shower with large tiles and a glass wall feels futuristic. | japanesetrash.com

This contemporary shower with a glass wall, large tiles, and integrated lighting feels futuristic to me.

Simple materials used well; plus a Swan Chair is always welcome. | japanesetrash.com

Some of my favorite materials–wood, glass, stainless steel–are used well in this space; plus, the Arne Jacobsen Swan Chair is always welcome.

This pool and adjacent pool house are so inviting. | japanesetrash.com

This pool and its adjacent pool house are so inviting.

Take a look at some of my favorite fireplaces and fire pits. | japanesetrash.com

It could easily be argued that the title of this post should be “Fall is Here”, since it is already October and much of the Northern Hemisphere is starting to experience cooler temperatures. In Central Texas, where I live, that means highs in the 80s and lows in the 50s—not exactly fire building weather, but there will be more than a few cold evenings here as the year continues. Which is why I’m already thinking ahead about fireplaces and fire pits, and why I wanted to share a few of my favorites with you.– See more at: The Interior Collective.
