Animal Prints are Neutral

Thursday, May 17, 2012

Do you like to use animal prints?  Years ago I favored using a little leopard print and then my allegiance switched over to zebra prints. I still love them both, and I've also admired antelope, tiger, and even a little python. The thing about most animal prints is that they can fit in just about anywhere, especially if they have the same coloration we see in the natural world.  
I can't be certain, but that pillow looks like Scalamandre's Leopardo in silk velvet.  I'd love to have some pillows done in that fabric, but the husband insists we make the mortgage payment instead.

Another favorite, again Scalamandre' silk velvet, this time it's LeTigre.

Again it's Le Tigre, on a decadent upholstered ottoman. Have you noticed Miles Redd uses this print frequently?

I just love this mix - the very modern zebra bench with the more rustic elements. Lovely!

This room was decorated by Elsie de Wolf years ago and it's still current.  Note the leopard pillows on the yellow velvet settees. 

Todd Romano decorated this space.  The antelope carpet is unexpected and so chic.

Finally, this image has been all around the blogosphere and probably on everybody's Pinterest, but I think it's worth seeing again. Emerald green and leopard were made for each other!

So, I'd love to know how you feel about animal prints.  Do you have a favorite, do you love them all, or do you stay away from them?
