You can also benefit your space by using accents in small quantities. You must stress on the fact that the animal prints should be made as the centre of attention. For those of you who like bold décor, you should go with large animal prints.

From large zebra stripes to scaled giraffe prints, it can be well incorporated in rug areas and furniture. To balance the boldness from the animal prints, you can pair solids and contrasting colors like the ottomans, pillows and side chairs. If you feel like your entire space might look like an African safari more than your living room, you can stay sophisticated with art work. You can go authentic with animal print paintings, photographs and modern sculpture!

For those of you who like the monochromatic color scheme but don’t want the boring look of black and white, animal prints is the perfect choice! You can seek attention with the zebra print style and add some color to the walls, flooring and window. This is the most preferred and modern twist to the monochromatic styling décor. For those of you who like some creativity and color twist, you go with the mix and match scheme.

A blend of patterns such as polka dots, stripes and animal prints is the trick here. You can mix the solids and patterns and unite them with neutrals to add beauty to the entire space. This will not only embrace comfort but also look very welcoming for your guests. A graphic zebra print looks panache with neutrals as well as a single bright color like yellow or fuchsia. The cheetah print is the perfect choice for a neutral-hued room.

You can work well with the animal prints blended with a palette of warm colors such as brown, beige and ivory. These will work well in your living room, dining area as well as bed room. However, for your kid’s room, you can go a little creative and colorful yet keeping well with the same pattern in the entire house. Ivory and beige aren’t the very sought after colors by most kids.

You can therefore use a zebra patterned zebra print rug and add urban landscape bedding to it layered with other colorful accessories. This will create a bright effect in the room which is beige-free! You can also add some animal soft toys to your child’s room giving the more animal effect which your children will love indeed. You can also try to keep the room simple with a giraffe print bedding and curtains while add a large painting of different animals on the wall. This will add more color to the bland room.
