Accessorize Your Home With Beautiful Zebra Print Furnishings
In searching for new designs and decorating ideas, we truly need not look beyond the patterns that have been given to us by nature. The zebra, for example, is a magnificent animal, with a stripe pattern of crisp black and white, which are actually at home in most contemporary décor themes. Zebra print furnishings may be used to create an entire motif, or pieces can be added around the home to create a hint of the African Savannah. Black and white stripes work great in a black and white environment, but are also beautiful with bright reds, yellows, and teals.
The best way to get the results you want, take a long look around your house and decide how much of a change you desire. You do not have to replace your furniture to get the look you want. You can make a splash with the use of carefully placed zebra print slipcovers or throws in the living room. Zebra print bedding in the bedroom can also make a huge difference in the look of your home.
If you do choose to add zebra striped furniture, it can be the entire set, or it could just be one or two pieces. For example, you can accent your white or red living room furniture with a faux leather covered ottoman or table. You will not feel overwhelmed with zebra stripes, but you will achieve the right effect. Many of these ottomans even serve double duty, opening up to give you a little extra storage space right where you need it the most. Tuck away your remote controls, lap blankets, or magazines in the heart of your living room or family room.
However, if it is not an entire overhaul of your home that you are seeking, there are plenty of zebra print options you can use to add an accent here or there to your house, condo, studio apartment, or condo. Decorative items, such as vases, picture frames, paintings and even clocks are available through many different retailers at various price points that will serve to wake up the overall décor of your home. A few strategically placed zebra striped vases in the kitchen window, for example, will tie in with the zebra striped wall clock in the bathroom. These great accessories will give your home that modern slant you are going for.
Decorate your teen’s room with a wild animal theme and you can even change the flooring to suit the overall motif. Select zebra print carpet tiles that are easy to work with and install for almost anyone. By using tiles, you can decide if you want zebra stripes all over the floor, or if you would prefer to intermingle them among black or other solid colors. Remember, too, that if you are designing your teenage daughter’s room, not all zebra prints are simply black and white. Indulge her love of pink or of bright colors in general by furnishing her room in wild hot pink or lime green and black zebra stripes on her bedding, lamp, picture frames, and even her waste basket.
