ANIMAL PRINT: YEP IT’S STILL COOL!

 

Over the years people often ask me “Is animal print still “in”?”  Seems like it should cycle in and out like everything else doesn’t it?  Instead it just sort of hangs on – stylish and en vogue as it has for years and years.  It just sort of takes on a new look and evolves with the times, butin it is.

Or household repair….animal print is here, bigger and bolder than ever.  I mean….duct tape…..who knew? I confess…I love it!  Yep, love it all.  Just ask my friends – they’ll tell you I’m “wild” about animal print. (Pun intended! Smile) I wear it….I decorate with it…..I love it!

And every color….

But, you can tone it down like this by just adding a simple throw…

Or just incorporating one piece….

You can create bodacious artwork like this.   This actually wouldn’t be difficult to do yourself – and on a budget.  Just buy a yard to a yard and a half or so of your favorite fabric, wrap around a lightweight board and staple in the back.  Voila!  Instant art on a dime!
