The adorable Silent Fox Rug as well as a few other fox-themed items from Anthropologie inspired me to create a style board centered around these often maligned carnivores. Like coyotes, the red fox (Vulpes vulpes) is remarkably adaptable to the presence of human populations, to the extent that it is currently listed by the IUCN as one of the "100 of the world's worst invasive alien species". Anyone who keeps chickens can attest to their destructiveness, but in their native habitat red foxes are important in the control of smaller prey species, especially rodents. No one can deny their attractiveness either (after all, they have been hunted for centuries for their beautiful fur), and I think they look fantastic in this bedroom!

The perfect artwork for this room would have to be the Eli Halpin print called "The Chase":
This is such a lovely and tranquil bedroom -- I think just about anyone would be delighted to spend their nights in the company of dozing foxes. Sleep on, silent fox, sleep on!
