They’ve been around for centuries and they are still “what’s hot” today!


Animal prints may seem like a design trend but our view is that they are a timeless design element!  When you look at at centuries old manor houses in England, chateaux in France and Bavarian hunting lodges, what will you find?  Animal prints and rugs.  Animal prints add an eclectic touch to everything from traditional interiors to cutting edge contemporary design.  Here are some fun illustrations of various ways designers have incorporated animal prints into their rooms.

William Eubanks is known for creating timeless interiors, including this study featured on The Enchanted Home. Note the tiger stripes on the upholstery.

Renowned designer Bunny Williams also uses animal prints, including the leopard print pillows in this living space.

Of course there are many modern uses for animal prints as well. Here are several of our favorite examples:

Tobi Fairley uses animal prints as decorative accents.

We love the use of the zebra hand towel in this powder bath!

This photo shows a fun use of a cowhide juxtaposed with colorful yellow furniture.

The zebra rug makes a huge statement on the floor of this contemporary bathroom.
