Using Animal Print Wallpaper In The Home

When you first hear the phrase ‘animal print’, you may think of garish leopard print or striking zebra print. Although you may not first consider animal print being used for wallpaper, it’s actually really popular and can be very subtle yet highly effective. Indeed, animal print needn’t be loud and brash, but it can be very simple and can help to bring texture to a wall. Of course, for those people who do want to make a bold statement with their interior décor, then there are big print patterns available.

If you’re considering using an animal print wallpaper in your home but you’re feeling a little cautious and don’t want to overdo it, then it’s probably worth papering just one feature wall rather than the whole room. A quieter pattern, such as a Natural Ostrich wall covering, will provide a good introduction into the world of animal print. For a baby’s nursery, a wallpaper featuring a sheep design is also very popular as the effect is very gentle and subtle. The sheep pattern is shown in gorgeous pastel colours, which are perfect for baby girls or boys.

Bold wallpapers needn’t be limited to animal print, as there are also a number of art deco wallpapers available on the market. Art deco inspired wallpapers often feature large repeating patterns which may have a metallic thread running through them. These can be used effectively in all sorts of rooms, whether it’s a contemporary living room or a tranquil bedroom.

When choosing a new wallpaper it’s always best to take a look at a sample before making a decision. Images of wallpaper online or in brochures don’t always justify the colour and texture of the paper, so be sure to ask for a small sample so that you can view the paper in both a natural and artificial light. The sample will also help you to choose your soft furnishings to provide continuity throughout your newly decorated room.
