Running Wild

Animal prints are all over the place right now!  I myself am considering investing in a faux leopard print fur jacket (too out there? I think I might have to go for it!)  I stumbled upon this feature on Elle Decor about animal print in interiors, and I must say I am a huge fan.  Bringing the outside in, I like!  Adds a little spice and whimsy to any room, especially a traditional space.  Don’t be afraid to add a touch of “wild” to your space.  Whether it be in a big (armchair, headboard) or small way (throw pillow, accent fabrics) let your wild side out!

I am not too big on animal prints to be honest and I wouldn’t invest in a piece for my home with it. I think I would get tired of it too quickly. But I do have a jacket that i got about 8 years ago. It’s super fine and looks fantastic still, and I don’t wear very often at all, but if I whenever I do, I feel sexy. I think that’s the point…. it brings your “wild” side alive.. lol

By the way, I have a really interesting post today, it’s about a new online magazine. If you have some time, please take a look, ok?

Oh yeah, I LOVE animal prints! I’m looking for the perfect leopard print for my Louis XV-style chairs. And some tiger stripes for cushions. And maybe an antelope print ….

Animal prints are fabulous – and can work like a neutral in a design scheme…I just wore one of my animal print cardigans yesterday and have 2 jackets and a vintage leopard coat I picked up for $40…LOVE it all!!

Hi there,

I’m a design student in the UNC – Greensboro, Interior Architecture program. First, I must admit, your stylishly captivating blog is listed as one of my favorites. For the past two and a half years I’ve frequently stopped by for visit whenever I need a helpful burst of inspiration. I love your exploration of animal prints within residential homes. A mix of patterns and “bringing the outside in” is a design style that I’ve always been attracted to! I’ve completely fallen in love with the kitchen/ dining room image. The fluid combination of a modern style kitchen with a vintage – teal upholstered chair is absolutely fabulous. By pairing those breathtaking chairs with a simple white table allows them to shine as the treasures of the room. Then, the set gently rests atop a zebra print rug … it gives me butterflies! All of the images you’ve provided are brilliant models of your focus, but I was absolutely enchanted by those chairs with that zebra rug. I apologize for rambling, but I just couldn’t help myself.
Thank you for being a consistent reminder of why I am in school, studying my passion for a love of design!

P.S. – It takes courage to wear leopard, so you might as well Step Out and Rock Out =)

I think every room can use a little animal print! Everything in moderation….

I absolutely love adding a pop of leopard to my decor. My living room has 3 leopard-spotted pillows and it adds that “je ne sais quoi” that I love.

[…] If done the right way, animal prints are an interior design element that will never go out of style. There are many ways to incorporate leopard, zebra and cow patterns into a home – obviously or with subtlety.  Whether it’s faux or the real thing, it’s all a matter of personal taste. Take a look at some of these Elle Décor shots we spotted on Material Girl’s Blog. […]
