A Walk on the Wide Side

5 years ago

Animal prints have been big for a while now.  They seem to make an imprint, no pun intended, at some point every year, whether it be cheetah, zebra, giraffe, etc.  I have always been a fan of animal print; my favorite animal print is leopard.  And I love using them in many of the rooms I design.


Here I used a tiger print as the main fabric on the sofa in my clients living space.

In this client's home, I showcased a prized taxidermied piece on the fireplace wall, creating an interesting mantle.

Here I selected a cheetah wall covering in a neutral/soft gold color and used accents of black for a dramatic pop.

I know this isn't technically animal print on an item, but I thought these faux animal heads were adorable in this nursery.
