Not Your Average Chainsaw Bear

In Tahoe we love our bears.  I see a lot of bears in local interiors.  The problem with bears, however, is that they can get pretty kitchy if you're not careful.  It's a trap to beware of.

I do like bears when they are used judiciously and if they are well designed or charming.

I'm mad for this beautiful bear wallpaper mural from Iksel.  Best of all, it can be sized up to suit your wall.

Why not throw it into a room that needs a little impact?  It's a natural, of course, for a young boys cabin bedroom.  But, it's classy enough to put into an entry.  I can see it surrounded by walls covered in a beautiful textured grass-cloth (one of my favorite tricks for adding an element of quality and interest to rooms that don't have enough architectural detail).

Every entry needs a place to toss keys so let's just add a gorgeous chest of drawers like this one from Mill Creek (drawers are so practical in the mountains---one for gloves, sunglasses in another, dog leashes, ski goggles, hiking gear, boating gear, etc.):

Toss in a couple of these beautiful Leopard Silviera Lamps from Arteriors:

And let's finish it off with a handsome and practical leaf patterned area rug that won't show the trail dirt:

Now, that's how I like to do bears!
