Animal Printed Pretty

This style is rocking the runway, and we think it could rock the home too! But don’t go overboard; keep these rules in mind and you won’t go too far astray!

Accent, not overwhelm
Because animal prints tend to be rather loud, there is an important drive to keep it tasteful and stylish; and this is done by ensuring you don’t overdo it. It takes a person of specific tastes to fully appreciate a maximalist home, which is wonderful if that’s your aesthetic, but in general, too much of a good thing can be too bad. Keep the prints to one or two pieces of furniture, restrain them to smaller accessories, and use them as upholstery on smaller pieces.
