Most are scared of animal print because of its tacky overuse, but lately the prints have seen a revival with a modern twist. Designers have been making the prints in poppy colors and flattening the textures. The combination of the two alternations have made animal prints a great modern statement piece.
Since the lines have been simplified and the colors updated, the pattern is no longer limited to traditional or formal spaces. It can be used in any room.
However, it’s not a print to go overboard with. Start with small steps or additions like an area rug, throw pillows, or other accent pieces.
When you do experiment with the pattern in its traditional earthy tone form, try adding poppy colors elsewhere like a sky blue or a summery green. This will set off the earthy tones and give your animal print an unexpected edge.
