In my childhood home in New Jersey, there was a white and gold elephant bench living within the faux foliage of the living room as the superstar of my ceramic jungle. I would sit on the elephant and make wishes, as I believed he was wise and could facilitate my desires. In a sense, maybe he did…! Today’s decor round up is a tribute to the wise, wonderful elephant!
Elephants are majestic, gorgeous, and mythical animals that have symbolized everything from the removal of obstacles to the generation and regeneration of the universe across many ancient civilizations. While there are “traditional feng shui” cures using symbols of an elephant, I’m going to go ahead and say that if you love elephants, display them wherever you want and don’t get hung up on the way things “should” be.
What a wonderful way to center and ground a room…!
I could look at pictures of intertwined elephants all day…
Utilitarian symbolism: the elephant tea pot is charming!
Sweet, dynamic & unique.
And a must-get for my own bookshelves, golden elephants are wise and divine!!!
