Pattern Adventures: An Animal Print Room!

2018_12_07_Animal-Print-Room-1-blog

We're back today with our very last pattern adventure of the year! It's been SO fun experimenting and challenging ourselves this year with a new print each month, and I hope you enjoyed following along and were inspired to experiment with these prints, too, in your own homes and wardrobes. We're wrapping up the series and this month's theme (animal print!) with a very merry living room. Come check it out!

Typically, animal prints are dark with a lot of black and brown. So, we decided to go with a more neutral and light animal print to keep it light and bright. We kept the space sleek and neutral with gold and white. Then, we added in pops of color with ornaments, artwork, and lots of fun accessories.

When adding in the animal prints, we kept it all very textural with the faux zebra print rug and faux cow footrest. We incorporated solids with the mustard chair and green bar cart and kept the other colors cool to compliment the neutral animal print.

We used lots off brass animal figurines and animal ornaments to play off the animal theme and made sure to spread out the prints throughout.
