Animal Prints Done Subtly

We love animal prints, but we don't like to be hit over the head with them. Our two rules for using animal prints in a subtle, not-so-trendy fashion: 1) Avoid the zebra rug; 2) Use only one print on one item in the room. Here are examples of rooms with just one animal printed item &mdash plus, animal-print décor options for your room.

1 Traditional Home

2 Pillow from West Elm

3 Traditional Home

4 Bedding from Williams-Sonoma Home

5 Kelly Wearstler's bedroom in Vogue

6 Prints of animals add animal prints without it having to be on a towel or rug, from Sharon Montrose

7Print from ZGallerie

8 One accent piece in an animal print can make a big statement, such as this giraffe bath math from Pottery Barn

9 The Izzy Collection from Missoni Home has towels reminiscent of zebra prints, but not exactly the same thing. At Unica Home

10 This Zebra balsa wall hanging from Velocity Art & Design is another way to get an animal print in a room.
