Animal Print Rooms

I grew up under the impression animal print could be described in one word: tacky. Maybe it was due to Cruella Deville or a mother who just wasn’t into it. Or maybe even, one too many episodes of “The Nanny.” But for whatever reason, I avoided animal print like the plague.

Until a few years ago. I started seeing rooms with zebra print rugs and cheetah print ottomans, and I — I liked them. And the more rooms I saw with animal print, I more I started to really dig it.

Animal print adds an exotic flair to any room. It can be edgy. It can be feminine. It can be chic. It can be hip. It can be bold. It can be subtle. In fact, in some rooms, it’s so subtle you don’t even notice it’s animal print. It just appears to be a really cool texture.

Look below to see what I mean. There are 35 examples of animal print rooms featuring cheetah, tiger, leopard or zebra print. Some are fabulously flamboyant. Others are understatedly elegant. As for the last one, I’ll let you decide.
