If you’re feeling wild, try incorporating animal prints into your home! Don’t worry, it’s equally fierce if it’s faux. Here are our four favorite prints:

1) Cheetah Spots. For a graphic and high-contrast print, choose cheetah! The spots are smaller than leopard, but the color palette is similar. Remember to start simple – you can always add more cheetah as you go! Accent your cheetah print with dark or tan complementary colors or other solid colors that match the colors of the print.

2) Leopard Spots. Leopard is warm, inviting and – if done correctly – a subtle way to bring pattern into any room. Pair a dark print like this stool with other dark colors for a warm vibe or throw this light patterned rug on the ground to add texture to an otherwise one-dimensional room.    

3) Crocodile Scales. For an unexpected look, try crocodile skin tiles or wallpaper. The texture adds a touch of affluence without the high price tag! Crocodile-covered furniture can also add a warm touch – What do you think of this brown crocodile scale table?

4) Zebra Stripes. What’s black and white and walked all over? A zebra rug! Give the popular black and white trend an unexpected twist by using a bold zebra striped rug or a piece of zebra-striped furniture. Zebra stripes are versatile and pair well with other prints, so feel free to mix and match. Do you like zebra and cheetah together?
