Keegan display in living room

A taxidermy crow looks upon a unique collection of items atop a vintage desk. This display could explain why some young people call this home "The Harry Potter house."

Is the Raven taxidermy? or Fake? - I would go out and buy one today if it was in-fact fake, as I have never seen such a real looking raven. Taxidermy is too sad to look at, for me. P.S. My name is Raven so I 'dig' ravens!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A taxidermy crow looks upon a collection of items atop a vintage desk. Emily: What's one of the more interesting reactions you have gotten to your home? Monique: Kids have an interesting reaction. They often call it “the Harry Potter house.” Others comment on how inefficient our windows must be and how few of them throughout the house match. To us, that’s exactly what gives our home character. Keith: When we first bought it before the renovation, one friend said it was depressing and in poor condition. Most of our visitors say it's like no other house; it defies words. They just say it's cool.

Skulls, Crows and Other SpecimensTo embrace the dark side, you need to embrace the symbols of darkness, foreboding and death. This workspace is perfectly dark and old fashioned (can't you picture Edgar Allan Poe writing here?). And the crow perched on the wall is the cherry on top.
4. Add mystery and intrigue to your home with some of these spellbinding Gothic adornments. After all, rubber snakes and spiders look so much classier (and even more menacing) when you display them in apothecary jars. See the full ideabook: Goth Glamour for Halloween and Beyond
