Instead of decorating your walls with the usual framed photos, try something unexpected. Faux taxidermy, jumbo letters, display shelves and vertical planters are a few fun options.
Like the whimsical look of wildlife but not so keen on hanging a dead animal on your wall? Choose from a veritable kingdom of faux taxidermy and bag some game in the most humane way.

Letters and numbers
Always wanted to see your name in lights? Go for it. Metal, marquee and map-covered letters are a few of our favorite ways to get wordy on the walls. For the more numerically inclined, deck the walls with your favorite digits.
