Trend to Watch {Animal Print}

One trend I have been seeing quite a lot of lately is animal print. 

Celebs like Chloe Sevigny are glamming it up on the red carpet;

Whilst Katie Holmes rocked it at her appearance on 
David Letterman this week;

 And who can forget the highly coveted Mulberry 'Alexa' Bag?


But most intriguing to me is the animal print trend in decor. Having more of a classic-style interiors personality myself, animal print is not something I would normally have considered. But after seeing these spaces, I might well be considering adding some animal print elements in our apartment.



These interiors definitely show that animal print can most definitely work in classic-style spaces; it just depends how you choose to use it - whether it be adding it in subtle touches such as cushions, or going further by making it a focal point in the room.

What do you think of animal print interiors; love them or loathe them?

  1. I think a well placed animal print can spice up an otherwise ordinary outfit... I love my leopard print flats!

    Personally, I've never tried animal print with home decor but you may have just changed my mind!

  2. I generally am drawn to it in punchy little doses like that gorgeous pillow - although, have to say I love Katie in that trench coat. So glamorous!

  3. Great news! My abiding love of a faux print never goes away so every now and then I come into fashion!! x

  4. Fabulous post, sweetie! I've always been a huge fan of animal print and have a ton of it in my wardrobe and I use touches of it in my decor as well. Throw pillows and such. In fact I'm wearing my animal print scarf today :)

    Have a great weekend! xoxo

  5. Previously: loath / Currently: love. Maybe it's because I'm older (mid-20') and can see the sophisticated look of this print. I adore it now, and am looking for the perfect clutch with a little gold perhaps... thank you for the inspiration -- Katie looks gorgeous!

    Hope you had a splendid weekend,

  6. Love what Katie Holmes is wearing in the photo! Animal print looks fab on her. Kellie xx

  7. I LOVE animal print....looking at animal print for closet floors... :)))))))
