Moll Anderson’s New Year’s Advice: Take a Walk on the Wild Side

Zebra Chair

This chair is a fabulous addition to an office space.

There is nothing more seductive than bringing animal print to your home, so why not take a walk on the wild side this year? I’m not saying you have to go all out; just a hint is a step in the right direction!

You can transform your domestic living space for 2012 with undomesticated animal prints. Think bold like bright zebra, cheetah, giraffe or leopard. For a more subtle take choose a snakeskin, something crocodile embossed, or cowhide…the list goes on!

The timeless black and white color combination of the zebra stripe is big this season in home décor. A zebra’s white stripes are designed for camouflaging in nature; but when this animal print is used in your decorating scheme it won’t be anything less than brave. If you prefer faux there is plenty of faux zebra and as many animal prints as your heart desires.

Including a chair in your design, like the one pictured here, will enhance your living space while preserving a more sensual vibe. Using one exotic animal print such as these fabulous cheetah pillows will enliven your sexy lifestyle.

Cowhide ottoman

When used correctly, cowhide can be very sleek.

Cowhide can be very sleek and modern and it’s not just for the Southwestern-style home. Don’t be afraid to take risks, I promise they’ll pay off! Your home should be a reflection of who you are and the seductive life you desire.

How will you incorporate animal print into your home this year?
