Specialists in interior design are inspired by the most diverse sources. As mentioned on another occasion, one of the most important sources of inspiration is the nature. Therefore, it is not surprising that among the elements that penetrate easily in the interiors include animal print patterns.
Being slightly eccentric, the animal print can, if not well dosed by thespecialists in design, slip into kitsch and even vulgar. If, instead, is calibrated so as to capture without shock, then the effect will be positive. It will manage to break the monotony, providing vibration and bold accents to rooms that may otherwise would have risked too flat.
Animal print creates a powerful impact which can be put, on one hand, on the vigurous, even brutal nature of the animal world which it suggests, and, on the other hand, on its graphic aspect based on its almost rigurous geometric appearance.
If in the animal world, the main source represents the big cats, in interior, this pattern can be found at a huge variety of elements. From carpets, upholstery, blankets, and generally, everything that stands as a textile, to wallpaper, lighting, paintings, and so on. What makes animal print to be so appreciated is maybe its “sauvage”allure, as the French may say. It sends you to thinking at adventure and it has a powerful capacity to suggest force and, also, the sinuous outline of a feline. Therefore, it transmits both boldness and suppleness of an agile movement.
The brute force that seems to be intrinsic makes the animal print match perfectly with interiors dominated by massive furniture, and its excentric nature makes it suitable in an interior dominated by sumptuous ornaments as is the case with Baroque style.
On the other hand, being an elements which is so visual dense element, animal print fits very well in a modern space, in which the decorative elements are missing or minimally present.
Therefore, animal print can be placed both in a modern interior and a classic one, used to complete an intense decorative esemble or to revitalize one too uniform interior. And all these will prove that animal print will always have enough force to stand out!
