Style Your Home With Animal Prints

Jun 23, 2022

Keep it simple

Stick to one sort of animal print instead of overwhelming your space with various patterns. A single patterned throw or scatter can help to give your living room some definition without a kitsch feel.

Stick to a muted colour palette

Let your animal print decor shine against muted and neutral colours. In keeping with a lighter colour scheme, the darker tones and patterns in your animal prints will pop and create a wonderful contrast in your space. We particularly love the idea of a monotone colourway paired with animal-printed textiles. A simple zebra pattern, for instance, will add a cohesive look to a black and white room. However, a cheetah or tiger print can bring in warmer tones that add to a contemporary ambience.

Statement pieces

Invest in statement furniture pieces that you know will have longevity in a room. An animal-printed rug or stool can help anchor your space. In addition, these can add a playful touch to an otherwise neutral living space.

Mix it up

Less is often more when it comes to animal prints in interior design. Our suggestion: consider the print that you love the most and tie this into your interior scheme. If you’re styling a sofa, for example, add just one scatter in a chosen animal print. Next, choose a mix of other fabrics – in plain, solid colours and different textures – to create a sophisticated aesthetic.

Don’t be afraid to embrace animal print in your home. Start with one piece and work your way up to styling your home like a real pro.
