While they are beautiful incorporations styling them can be tricky and therefore we are here for it
Below are some of the ways you can incorporate these fun animal prints in your home for a wonderful and fresh look:
THE CLASSIC LOOK
The classic use of wonderful patterns like cheetah prints, leopard prints, paw prints and animal-centric motif pieces paired with a classic and neutral background brings the colour blocking of the interior to life.
Colour blocking is essential to break the monotony of the room and to add a pop of freshness to these lavish designs. Pair the prints over softer coverings and add a few neutral pieces of furniture to strike the right balance. The classic look also allows you to incorporate the vintage or old Hollywood glam look in your homes for a laidback look with natural textures.
Animal prints, unlike their peppy nature, can be moulded into a number of subtle colours and shades, based on your preference like the cool and industrial rustic animal rugs and chairs that are readily available.
Vine and brown, burgundy colours are utilised over oxidised and metallic furniture and accents to complete this look. It is a vintage paired with a modern home aesthetic look that is vibrant yet cosy and comfortable with the muted shades. Rustic aesthetics allows you to bring out texture and colours in a more controlled way.
While deciding on this aesthetic that you have picked on, you can pretty much agree on how fun would be the different shades of colourful prints that can be incorporated into your home to give a maximalist look while making sense.
Though this can be tricky when combined with the right colours and shades, these colourful animal prints can make the interiors look right out of a magazine. Go for peacock blues, parrot greens, turquoise, rose red and bohemian pink to complete this look and see your interiors shine and bring the entire room some freshness and colours.
How to make a statement that is not too loud? You add a subtle animal print to the house and combine it with the matching sets of neutrals. You can add whites, greys, light hues of blue and green, peach, and beige to contrast the subtle yet textured animal prints in your living rooms and bedrooms for a peaceful balance between not too much and not too less.
These are the type of interiors, that professional interior designers look for to make the home appear lavish and bright without trying too much. The cottage core aesthetic is the right aesthetic for this look. It adds the summery charm to your interiors.
‘THE’ STANDALONE PIECE
If you have seen those magazines that have a well put home and a centrepiece that just takes your breath away, it is this animal print foal point you need to achieve in order to mirror that. Make the animal print upholstered furniture your standalone piece or centre piece of the room to have much more in a lot less.
A zebra print or a cheetah print would look excellent even as an art decor or a magnum opus that you love. Make sure that the colour scheme that is going on in the room matches the colour of the print otherwise it might look out of place.
For the lovely and over the top maximalist interiors, if you want to make a large statement in your living room, going for animal print lounge chairs is the way to go. Lounge chairs are not only relaxing, but they make a bold statement on their own.
Consider using two chairs to make the most statement. Furthermore, consider adding coloured animal print for an enhanced feature that truly makes the room come to life. Keep the rest of your décor chic and upscale for that fun and iconic element.
