You either like or hate animal prints but despite our personal taste they are present in the interior design. We will show you how to use animal prints in the interior design to achieve visual effects and exotic atmosphere in your luxury home.
Many designers will tell you that prints and images of animals can complement the look of the apartment and there are many ways to accentuate the individuality of the homeowner.
If you are attracted to wildlife and want to create a spectacular living space, then you should pay attention to the designer style, inspired by the animal world and known as animalism.
Here are some great ways you can pull off animal prints in your contemporary décor:
1. Use On Pillows & Throws
If you’re a little timid to try it out, ease into it by adding a pillow or throw in a neutral tone. Most likely you’ll find that it’s really all your space needed to get that edgy feel.
2. Tone On Tone
This is by far one of favorite ways to incorporate animal prints into a space. By choosing an animal print that is muted and watered down it really becomes more of a neutral! Especially if you have other prints and patterns in your space, a muted animal print won’t compete and overwhelm. You can easily mix in a tone on tone animal print with anything.
3. Take It To The Ground
A large scale animal print rug is a great way to give your room an organic feel. Try using a hair on hide rug to keep things looking natural and not too contrived. We recently added a muted leopard print carpet as a stair runner, which was a great way to make a statement in a place where it wouldn’t compete with other furnishings.
4. Scale Down Print On Upholstery
Using animal prints in your upholstery takes a little more commitment, but it works best when the print is scaled down. This makes the piece instantly recognizable, but keeps it from becoming overwhelming.

The key when using animal prints is NOT overdoing it! Think of it as an outfit…maybe you incorporate a snake skin purse, or some spotted heels for a subtle touch.
