News flash - animal prints are in for fall . . . as they have been every fall for as long as there have been animals.
Happily, I am more than up on this trend, owning no less than four animal print coats or jackets and two animal print pillows (this is after thinning the herd last fall.)
Animal prints are the perfect high/low design option. Animal prints run trademark free, and they are cheap and plentiful.
My new thing is animal-prints-other-than-zebra-and-leopard for clothes, to wit this ocelot print from Coach. (Note also the pairing of animal prints with other patterns. Would you try this?)
When it comes to home design, I'm loving uncommon prints or even common ones done in unusual ways. My new fave - caramel-y kitty colors in home decor like leopard, jaguar and tiger.
I usually visualize leopard and related prints in some layered traditional setting a la Bunny Williams. But look how great they are with minimalism, modernism and my always favorite grey.
You could get your animal print in fashion and home decor at the same time by hanging your coat out to be seen as do the ladies of Rue.
How about you? Do you do animal prints in the closet? In the home?
