home: trend [ animal print ]
Let’s begin by saying that this trend is not for everyone. Of course we would argue we all need a bit of leopard print in our lives, but we won’t hold it against you if it’s not your thing.
Taking inspiration from fashion trends, leopard and snake skin print is everywhere right now. Find it on cushions, bedding, accessories, furniture, wallpaper and rugs.
Brands that are fully embracing their wild side are rockettstgeorge.co.uk and zara.com with a great range of products to add some flare to your home.
Don’t be afraid to clash prints if you are feeling brave. Alternatively add touches of animal print to a corner of a room with soft furnishings for a more subtle take.
Clockwise from top left.
Cushion / amara.com [ £35 ], bedding / hm.com [ £39.99 ], floor vinyl / amara.com [ £110 ], chair / rockettstgeorge.co.uk [ £180 ], pillow case / zara.com [ £4.99 ], wallpaper / rockettstgeorge.co.uk [ £99 ]
home: featured [ Zara Home ]
With every animal print you can imagine being worked into fashion design, across the high street, it was inevitable that it would also feature strongly in homeware design too.
We headed Zara Home and discovered the brand who has sell out animal pieces in their clothing collections, also has some key pieces in homeware using patterns inspired by zebras, leopards and snakes.
The bathroom, bedroom and lounge are all catered for.
