Raaaaaaaaarr – part 1

A couple of weeks ago I posted about the delectable new leopard print wallaper by Osborne & Little.  The following day I went to say hello personally.  I probably don’t need to tell you that it was pretty freaking amazing, along with other members of its pride, the snakeskins, croc skins and sort of zebra-stripe-type-things.

In fact, I’ve been noticing more and more faux animal skins/prints being used in interior design recently, and after my recent encounter I thought I’d take a look at a few similar design ideas.  Whether you carpet your entire space in zebra stripes, or add a couple of faux crocodile skin throw pillows as an accent, I’m pretty sure one of these options will be right up your street.

First up, some luscious leopard:

Or how about a zingy zebra print?

Sassy snakeskins?

Or add gorgeous texture with some chic crocodile print:

Ha, just kidding with that last one, unless you really like crocodiles…

Or lastly, wht not try out an antelope print for a more unusual take on the trend:

So which one is your fave??  Or do you hate them all?!

Make sure you stop by for my shopping guide tomorrow!

    OMG that leopard carpet is awesome! I love it! And they’ve done all this without making it look in the least bit bet lynch.

    Do you know where the snakeskin wallpaper is from? Perfect for a project I’m doing. Having been waiting for the crock sample from O&L forever and they’re being very slow….

      Thanks Lauren, much appreciated! It’s a kinda wacky idea for a nursery, no? But somehow it works. I guess the antelope is one of the more subtle prints.

      Yeh, it’s an inspired office space, hey? Have you seen Mary McDonald’s office? It’s even better, think I’d sell close family members to have it…
