Room Decor Ideas: ANIMAL PRINTS

Room Decor Ideas: ANIMAL PRINTS

Autumn is coming up… a great time to incorporate animal prints into your home.

Elle Décor has some of my most favorite decorating ideas and tips and animal prints is on their trend alert.  I often go to their website to get some inspiration. Some of the greatest designers often add  subtle animal prints in their designs. If utilized correctly, animal prints never go out of style and add a certain allure to any room. Leopard is very popular, but don’t forget about, cow, zebra, snake, or giraffe!  Check out these awesome animal prints.

Mixing animal prints is ok too.  It is said to be masculine, exotic, and timeless.  But proceed with caution because the main design mistake with animal prints is overuse. Pick a couple of pieces and don’t go overboard, say a chair and throw pillows.

If you on a budget, striking animal prints are always laying around discount stores, or get DIYInspired and purchase a small quantity of animal print fabric and reupholster a flea market find… so why not spice up your home and go wild!
