Animal Instincts


I am contemplating giving my apartment a little refresh. Now that my wedding is a distant memory...I can't believe I'll be married 6 months this weekend!...and spring is coming, I feel like the time has come for a a re-decorating project.

I'm loving the idea of incorporating a little animal print somewhere. I adore animal print and right now the only home decor element I have is a little throw pillow for one of my chairs. I'm definitly loving the idea of a throw rug or maybe a chair.


And I'm really liking the look of mixing color pieces or accents with animal print to brighten the whole thing up and not having it be so monochromatic. I think it's a more modern approach.

I would have never thought to incorporate animal print into my decor but these pictures are totally changing my mind. My fave is the last photo - the bold colours really bring the zebra print rug to life.
