Next up are animal print cushions – one of the easiest ways to inject a dose of animal print into your home decor.
If you’re drawn to a particular style of print, such as leopard, try to introduce complementary characters like giraffe and tiger which both share a similar palette. Then, use them in more than one room in your home so you create a subtle theme.
Animal print always comes back to confidence – the more self-assured you are with using it, the greater the effect. Try using two styles of animal print fabric on the cushions in your living room, and then a third on the ones on your bed, or on a hallway bench if you have one. But if you only have eyes for the one style of print, use that and that alone, just as the designer has in the sophisticated zebra-centric Eichholtz living room.
If you’re feeling particularly venturesome, take your textiles up a level and invest in an animal print throw. Unless you’re doing animal print in a maximalist way, tone down the number of cushions you have and let the throw be the main event in this scenario. Try folding it in two and draping it over the back or arm of a sofa with a mixture of oversized and oblong cushions in front of it.
