Animal Print

Here’s something I’ve been meaning to blog about for a while. What do you picture when you think of animal prints?

Or maybe this?

I wanted to see if I could change a few minds here today with some updated ways use animal prints.

My advice for trying animal prints?

  • Small doses – the seat of a desk chair, a small ottoman, throw pillows.
  • Take full advantage of all the colors available.
  • Approach it with some whimsy! Use it to make a traditional room more inviting. Send a signal that it’s okay to have fun in the space. Let people know that you have a little sense of humor.
