Help Me Get Mounted Ducks Out of the Bedroom!!

hacketts24October 15, 2013
I'm moving into my fiancé’s house and all the wall decor in the bedroom is duck related (3 hand-drawn prints of ducks and 2 stuffed and mounted ducks hanging on the wall). He's willing to compromise on some items, but the mounted ducks in particular are going to be a sticking point because they are new so he's still very proud of them, I actually had them mounted for him b/c he was so excited about the hunt (wishing I'd had more foresight), and the only place in the house that isn't a space where guest go is our bedroom. We have an unfinished basement, so if I suggest sticking them down there, I might as well ask him to box them up. I don't want them in a "public" space, but I also don't want to have to stare at them before falling asleep each night. Any suggestions?? Please help!

I agree that you don't want to be looking at dead ducks from your bed........I suggest that you put them in the guest room.....Do you have a guest room?
If this room is decorated like a traditional masculine den, then the ducks can go in there.

sunnydrew You should look at this dilemma thread. I would say that the bedroom should be the last place to have them, if it unsettles you in any way. You may want to have a serious talk about it.

Do you have a staircase going upstairs (or downstairs to the basement) , I think collections are best gathered into one place and filled on a wall with ledges or frames or both. Failing that if you have a guest WC just make it the Duck Room. But explain to him that the collective impact is so much better than dotted around the house.
