Wild Thing: Animal Wallpaper

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Animal print has a reputation as something that can get tacky real quick — but not these animal prints. We like to think of these animal wallpapers as the modern approach to the subject. Who knew block printed animal print wallpaper could be so successful?

Don’t think you can only stick these in a kids room — as you can see by the use in Baily McCarthy’s Powder Room, these designs can be used in sophisticated ways. The bathroom is an unexpected place for animal wallpaper, but it’s a very pleasant surprise that makes us want to run out and do the same thing!

We really like the idea of using animal wallpaper for the pantry! Bold prints work really well in small spaces like pantries or cabinets. Where would you use bold animal wallpaper?
