It’s A Jungle Out There

Animal Print Decor


Let’s talk animal print. Do you love it or hate it? I love it, in moderation. Whether it’s in home decor or fashion, I believe that animal print should be used appropriately.  I was once told that every home should have a touch of animal print. I repeat…a touch.

For example, you can add animal print in certain places, like in lamp shades.

Here, I have two lamps with animal print shades on a table in my foyer. They are unique and striking. They give people a sense of my eclectic style, as soon as they walk through the door. They are “memorable.”

Another place that I have animal print is in my living room. These ottomans are from Ballard Designs. They are their Courbe Ottoman with Brass Nailhead trim. You can get them in off-white twill or choose a custom upholstery. They have lots of beautiful choices in their fabrics. And you can have fabric samples sent right to your home.

They are probably my favorite pieces of animal print. They are subtle due to the neutral colors. They give you the animal print without screaming “jungle!” The nailhead trim gives them a very updated, yet classic look.

One other place in my house where I have some animal print is downstairs in our family room. One end of the room has our sofa, tv, etc and the opposite end has a table and chairs. Not really chairs…

I found these great stools at my favorite place, Homegoods! Each one originally had a different print. They matched, other than the fabric. I needed four and you know that at Homegoods, if you see it…you better get it…or it will be gone! So I purchased 2 yards of fabric and covered them myself.

So I suggest using animal print in moderation. It doesn’t have to be in every room. It can just be in one small place. It can be something as simple as animal print coasters.

Have fun with it. Be adventurous! Love the print!
