Mixing contrasting styles is a major décor trend that we see sticking around. Give playful prints of wild things a dose of sophistication by pairing it with elegant pieces. Here, artist Hunt Slonem’s tortoise-themed fabric (his personal favorite from his new collection) is upholstered onto ornate 19th century chairs.

In a similar way, cheerful animal prints can add a sense of whimsy to spaces with modern architectural features. This adds softness and warmth to features that can otherwise feel a bit sterile. Style editor Chassie Post’s home is a prime example of this—we especially love how the butterfly wallpaper looks in the kitchen.

Instead of using an animal-themed print all over your walls, try incorporating a pattern on one piece of furniture. Here, designer Nick Olsen used a fabric fit with colorful parrots on the sofa of this bedroom. Olsen’s look incorporates a lot of color and pattern, but you can use the bird print as the single pop of color in the space, too.

Prints with animals in them can be subtle, too! Just choose a version that is neutral in color. This bedroom showcases a large Cole & Son Flamingo wall covering in a grey/taupe color way, which tones down the large scale of the pattern, making it soothing enough for a bedroom.
