Best Animal Prints for Interior Decor

To the question of what animal print fits best with your style, “none” is a totally acceptable answer – and maybe even the most popular one.

But, that’s only because animal prints have gotten such a bad rap over the years. There have been too many abuses of this style to name – and some that can’t be named as a matter of good taste – but it’s hardly fair to let those disasters ruin such a fun furnishing fashion!

Let’s take a look at the most popular animal-print styles, and in doing so perhaps you’ll be inspired to explore the wilder side of interior design.

Leopard Print

A classic! Though maligned by the fashion industry for far too long, leopard print has clawed its way back into the realm of chic – especially in home furnishings and décor.

Of course, that doesn’t translate to a blank check for anyone looking to turn their living room into a jungle safari, but you can show off your catlike reflexes in interior design with a couple purr-fect picks.

Giraffe Print

It’s been around for a while, although because you don’t see it as often it offers a more exotic feel. But, can you pull it off? 

The good thing about giraffe print is that the pattern is often larger – on scale with the animal, in some cases – which gives it an attractive, abstract-art quality.

Zebra Print

Unlike with other prints, zebra print is and always will be the loudest in the menagerie. If you can make it work, you can make anything work.

And, exactly how do you make it work? Try it in a small, sharp accent piece that adds pop to the rest of your décor without it becoming the centerpiece.

Tiger Print

Most often reserved for pro wrestling costumes and monster trucks, tiger print not-so-stealthily stalks the periphery in home décor. It’s rare, but it’s there.

It’s a bold look. Experiment in true DIY fashion, or get tips from pro interior designers via our friends at Decorist and Porch
