Catching the Decour Bug... Literally.

If you are anything like me, the prospect of having an insect of ANY kind in your home is borderline horrifying. Let's put it this way, the Orkin Man and I are good friends. (This little tidbit will become important when you see what my next featured designer has in store.)

When I first looked at Brad Ford's designer portfolio I thought, wow, he ties nature into these rooms in the most subtle ways. (Just look at the accent table below... fabulous, no?) Then I saw the wall paper in each room and thought, wow... it really pops off the screen! The detailing and color of the insects on the walls must be amazing.

Then I realized, its not just wall paper...

...The bugs are real.

Brad has taken creative decor to a new level here, if you ask me. The idea of actually using insects as accent decor ... wow. I am speechless. Is this idea creepy or brilliant? You tell me...

Hi, I found your blog on Desire to Inspire! Ugh, though - bugs for decoration? Must be for the not-so-fainthearted! I've actually seen tadpole coasters as well (real tadpoles in plexiglass...) Eeek.
Loved your blog. Have a great weekend!
