help with decorating mantel with mounted deer head

13 days ago

We're renovating a 200 yr old home and have this great cast iron fireplace in what will be the office. They'll be a large leather chair and ottoman in front of the fireplace, with a cow-hide rug underneath. Hubby is waiting for an elk head but for now, he wants to put his trophy buck above the mantel. Not sure how to decorate around that. OR should we put the deer head on the small wall between the windows? It's a small room 12 x 12 and a traditional style home - not rustic. The attached pictures are of the room (in blue) and the deer mount in our previous house. Any pictures or advice would be greatly welcomed. THANKS in advance.
