Wild for Animal Print
November 09, 2018 in Interiors Tour | no comments

There is an elegant way to embrace your wild side and that can be done with layering in animal print elements into your home. From antelope to zebra, there is a print for everyone. Animal print is timeless and it can also serve as a neutral. The right animal accent can add a dash of whimsy to a space, while still remaining tasteful and elegant.

Through the years, we have incorporated chic animal print accents into our projects. We have rounded up some of these projects, old and new, that incorporate the nature inspired motif.

Fort Worth Georgian Breakfast Room

In this home, we incorporated punchy fabrics and whimsical details to make this home feel inviting and classic. The orange leopard print on the back of the breakfast chairs add the perfect amount of texture, color, and interest to this open space.

Designer Tip: Adding a fun, decorative pattern to the back of dining chairs can make such an impact in a space. You typically see the back of these chairs the most, so you might as well add something that is attractive to look at each day!

Parade Home Study

In this study, we were going for a much more bold look. A pair of zebra chairs with orange piping made this space funky and fun.

North Suburban Study

An antelope rug grounds this home office. This antelope style rug comes in other fun colors like almond, stone, light blue and navy. Oh, and you can even get this style of rug made into custom floor mats in your car.

Downtown Austin Condo

These fun chairs play up the retro glamour in this downtown condo. Perfect for a fashionista that loves bold patterns and textures!

Did we mention this client LOVES animal print? We sprinkled in these accents throughout the condo, with a zebra pattern hide rug and more cheetah print pillows.

New Projects!

We just wrapped up this project in Barton Creek. The zebra print rug just pops in the home and plays up the primarily black/white color scheme in the home. It definitely makes a statement in the home’s foyer.

In this same home, our jet-setting client wanted her office to be sleek, modern and feminine. Our client’s existing hide rug with zebra print was the perfect fit with all the new furnishings and decor we incorporated into the space.

This photo is from a different home in Barton Creek with a very bright and colorful palette. We can’t share the full room of this new project with you just yet, but we wanted to share these fun pillows in the family room. We hope to share more of this project with you very soon!

Even the most mild-mannered spaces could benefit from a dash of animal print. If you want to explore the options, our team can help.

Also, as a reminder we are closed on Monday, November 12th for Veteran’s Day. We will re-open on Tuesday, November 13th at 11 am.
