Wild Thing! Animal Print Bathrooms

Animal print has never quite gone out of style; it’s evolved over the years, coming in and out in a variety of applications and popularity. Now that it’s firmly back in (as evident by clothing trends), it’s time to learn how to use it in your home. It’s easy to incorporate it throughout the house – pillows, lamps, rugs – but the bathroom can be tricky. Here’s how to get that perfect animal print bathroom:

Accents and accessories

Perfect for those who are just getting their feet wet when it comes to animal print. Try an ottoman, chair, rug or accessory; if you’re a bit more committed, choose a sink or light fixture.

If you really do love animal print but prefer to keep it lower key, go with zebra wood, monochromatic patterns, or touches like lion feet on the bathtub.
