Guest Picks: In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb

When it’s no longer the holidays and still not very spring, it’s tricky to determine what sorts of special touches to add to the home. I believe that March is the perfect time to add some spunk to your decoration. These quirky lion and lamb pieces will add a little animal fun based on the famous adage in this season. I have chosen both artificial and nonfaux items, as it’s great to have options that will suit an assortment of discerning consumers. — Darlene out of Fieldstone Hill Style

Lulu & Georgia

Taupo Pillow, Lamb White – $35

This white pillow has the look of shearling sheepskin, but it’s faux. I like adding pillows like this to my rooms during the colder months as they’re so simple to swap out, and they are easily able to change the feel of the space.

Lion’s Head Table Lamp – $299

Stately and serious? Or quirky and enjoyable? It depends upon whether you pair this lion’s head table lamp with a great deal of color and quirk or a reserved and sophisticated space. My vote is for color and quirk.

Jonathan Adler creates the very best lighthearted ceramic art. This enjoyable lion would surely be at home in a nursery or children’s area, but I would also use it like a bit of bright fun on an entryway table.

This seems so luxuriously soft — and it’s faux! This lambskin blanket is the perfect snuggle companion to help keep the chill off March nights. I’d give this as a gift to a friend who seems to have everything.

I adore these gilded lion bookends. They can be stately and enjoyable at precisely the same moment. Even though they would look fantastic at a library, I’d use them atop a desk so they can definitely stick out.


Tibetan Lamb Faux Fur Lap Throw Blanket – $79.99

I really like the realistic look of the faux Tibetan lamb fur throw blanket. The two-toned layers will include beautiful dimension into a couch. It’ll be the perfect throw for when warmer days come in like a lamb, but the nights continue to be harsh like a lion.

Ram Head – $49.95

I love this contemporary artificial taxidermy for a focal point on a wall. I’d use him to include fantastic comparison to some room painted in a rich, deep color.
