animal prints: the new black?









Are animal prints the new black?

Using animal prints as accents - especially pillows, chairs, rugs and trims - can help coordinate and in some cases, anchor, a space.

From leopard to antelope and any lizard in between, these patterns come from the wild and thus naturally blend with all colors.



If mixed tastefully (no Snooki designs allowed here!), these prints add a zap of pizazz that can amp up stripes, toile, and even the dullest chintz.





 
Spots just mix so well, don't you think?
