Decorating with Animal Print Fabric

Pin It

Animal Print Fabric can be one of the most controversial topics in the design world. Many will tell you that it is tacky and cheap, but I am going to stand up for a good cause and tear that stereotype down. Decorating with animal prints doesn't always mean a velvet leopard print bean bag in a 70's style home. There are so many uses for these prints, and so many are beyond classy.

A simple animal print fabric accent can make all the difference or sometimes, it is barely noticeable! I agree, I don't think animal prints need to the centerpiece of the room, but I think some recognition is well earned. Take this room pictured at the right. A zebra print rug fits beautifully in this classically designed space. Who knew something so modern could fit so well with antique furniture?

Overall, we're huge fans of animal print fabric. If it is done with taste, decorating with animal print fabric can be such a useful tool in designing a room. Here are some ideas to get you started!
