Well, it’s been a while, but I’ve recently been inspired to renew my blog and what better time to start than in the New Year? And what better thing to start it off with than one of my favourites – animal print. It’s sexy and a little bit daring and if used properly at home and in an outfit it can be classy too.

I love to see a little dash of animal prints in interiors. It reminds me a bit of the 5 years we lived in South Africa. My personal belief is that a little goes a long way in a room. It can easily look cheap, so you have to be careful how you apply it, but I think the following are great examples of the successful use of animal prints.
This subtle zebra print wallpaper adds nice interest to the space without being aggressive or overwhelming. The cowhide reinforces the subtle theme.
It’s unusual to see a dalmation-like print, but this really works. The gold book case and simple pallette add class to this vignette.
I like this hit of Zebra print on the ottomans in the room below. It works well with the other black and white elements in the room and the bright green print keeps it fresh and modern.
I’ve had a hard time finding a picture of leopard print used in home decor that doesn’t look a bit cheap, but this ottoman works. I think it’s because it doesn’t take itself too seriously. It’s been made to look a bit more casual with the piping and surrounding decor elements.
So, are you bold enough to try animal print in your closet or interior? How will you pair it with your wardrobe or design?
