How to Use Animal Print without Creating a Jungle

Who doesn't love a good animal print? Although, sometimes it is easy to go a little overboard. These design tips will show you how to incorporate your favorite pattern, without bringing the Amazon home.

 

Choose one statement accessory.

The tree silhouettes cleverly pick up the zebra motif.

 

Pick your favorite pattern in an unexpected color. 

The chair adds interest to this room, and the additional pops of color tie it all together.

 

Use textures on unexpected pieces.

For an edgier feel, incorporate reptile prints, like this Regina Andrews lamp.

Get away from traditional prints, and get inspired by something different.

These scalloped tiles reference fish scales for a fun look.

Use abstract art to make a simple space pop.

A little bit of print in this space goes a long way.
