Pick a Print:
Decide which print you most adore. Are you feeling the cheetah print or the tiger print or my fave...the zebra?? Whatever you pick, NEVER and I mean NEVER, mix more than one animal print. I think the whole jungle is represented in this bedroom.
Less is More:
Unless you are in to theme rooms (read: Elvis' Jungle Room), you're probably going to want to keep it simple and subtle. In my office, I have two pillows and a few candles in a brown, zebra pattern. Jacki constantly reminds me that there are no zebras with brown stripes in nature. I think that's irrelevant. Jacki--don't hate!
This classic leather chair would be so cute with ONE of these items, not all 3--too much!
I like the matching set of leopard print chairs in this spacious living room.
I guess that's pretty decent advice for all aspects of home decor...unless you have the patience, time and money to fix it if you hate it. For animal prints, start with accessories. They're out there...by the boatload. With accessories, you haven't made a huge investment. If you decide you don't love it after awhile, you can easily change it. If you are digging the call of the wild, you can get a little more daring and go for a rug or a piece of furniture.
I hope these quick tips have inspired you to release the beast in your home!
Have a wonderful weekend!
