Design Inspiration | Animal Print & Yellow

Yellow Animal Print



Today’s Design Inspiration is all about animal print paired with yellow.  Animal print, whether it be leopard, ocelot, zebra, or cheetah it all reads as a neutral in a space.  Animal print pairs well with vibrant colors like emerald green , cobalt blue, red, fuchsia or in this case yellow.


I love this dining space with these cheetah print chairs and mustard yellow drapery from designer Melissa Miles Rufty.

These  leopard print chairs flank a  gorgeous chest, and the bright yellow mirror pops against the chocolate lacquered walls.

 Design is always in the details and this yellow piping around these ocelot pillows is a perfect example.

 There is a right and wrong way to incorporate animal print into your home decor, a little goes a long way.  You definitely want to stay away from turning your room into a safari.  In this space designed by Sally Wheat a leopard pillow adds just the right touch to the yellow sofa.

I love wearing any type of animal print as well.  Again, a little goes a long way.  And hello I need these leopard pants STAT!  This is a perfect look for Fall.

Or how about a little leopard cardigan paired with a bright yellow skirt?

Or if wearing it feels a little too “wild” for you, how about lounging in this amazing wingback wearing a silky yellow dress?

So how about you? Would you or do you wear a little animal print?  How do you feel about having it in your home?
