Not until long ago whenever someone talked about animal prints I used to think of a tacky image that would terrify me to my very senses. But in time I discovered that it is possible to have some animal print inserted into your life without looking like a cheap fake. How?
Rule no.1 – The first rule of using animal print is to not overuse it. You are already using animal print which is a bold choice. Don’t ruin it by adding too much or God forbid, by combining multiple animal prints (tiger with leopard or with zebra). A good idea in this case would be to use animal printed wallpaper on just one wall. This way the focus will fall on the animal print and your bedroom won’t seem like the location where the best porn film was shot.
Rule no.2 – Start using rugs to cover your floors. Choosing an animal print for the rug you will place on your bedroom floor will be the spark that’s missing from your bedroom. This will create a romantic and even daring atmosphere while keeping the levels of good taste within limits. Just remember not to use excessive animal print in other parts of the room.
Rule no.3 – Use animal print for your furniture. Just like in the case of the rugs or the wallpaper, one piece of animal print will stand out from the crowd and will make your room look different and more interesting. Try applying some bold animal print on a chair and transform your bedroom into a unique design.
