Beyond the Sparrow: Animal Themed Accessories

Beyond the Sparrow: Animal Themed Accessories

We're with Adrienne when we say that we love having pets, but that something a little more inanimate could be a tad more convenient. And after a couple seasons of sparrows and owls, we're looking for some other kinds of animals to brighten the corners:

We've covered a lot of owls and songbird themed items in recent months and now we're looking for some new animals to spotlight. We're calling elephants, kangaroos, leopards (or pumas!) and turtles as the next big animals in home decor. What do you think? Are animals played out? Or is there always room for an animal motif?

Clockwise from upper left:
5x7 Leopard Print Rug at Urban Outfitters, $68.
Thomas Paul Sealife Serving Tray, $18.
Areaware Kangaroo Pillow, $84.
Ikea Busig Tray, $5.99
