Monthly Trend Report : Animal Print
Hi chaps, here’s Tina again with her monthly report on interiors trends. Seems we’re going a bit wild this month.
Hello again! It's Tina here, back with your Monthly Trend Report. Fall is officially here and it's quite chilly in New York. When it comes to fall design many like to use materials that are warm and soft to the touch. Which is exactly why I think that animal print is here to stay! (At least for the next few months.) Animal print has been making an appearance over the last year, in rugs, upholstery and accent fabrics.

Zebra print is the most popular, and it may be because black and white are classic colors that can be placed into any space easily. If you are looking for more of a pop you may want to think about leopard and cheetah print, which is huge in fashion right now. If it's fashionable for your clothes, it'll be great for the home as well.
Using actual animal hides can get expensive, and real hides may not be everyone's cup of tea. If you love the look but want to keep it simple, there are many printed fabrics you can choose from to help you get the look.
What do you think of animal print? Love the trend or hate it? Do you think it's here for the long run?
