Now that I’ve given you pointers on how and how not to use leopard print in your home decorating, (Do’s and Don’ts of Using Leopard Print in Your Home Decorating) I found an article in the April 2015 issue of House and Home that might interest you. Here are a few ideas from More or Less by Jennifer Koper than just the animal print to glam up your home and make you feel like a Hollywood starlet. (You’ll have to get the magazine to see her examples)
1. Warm metals – Not the in your face shine of past trends, but the warmer glow of sand cast or wire-brushed aluminum or brass. One way to add it is in your lighting fixtures. What about this one to make you feel like a celebrity?
2. Animal print – You knew it was going to be in the list didn’t you? Every diva needs a little bit somewhere in their décor, and one of the simplest ways to glam up a room without changing everything at once is a throw pillow. Finding these in your favorite animal print will add instant animal attraction.
3. Gold and black – It’s been around lately in women’s fashion and now you can add it to your home. Keep it simple and classic with a side table. Again, keep the metals warm for a serene, yet luxe appeal instead of highly polished shine.
4. Grass-cloth wallpaper – If you want to go bigger than just a few accessories why not try wallpaper? While naturally colored grass-cloth is a classic in fine interiors, up the wow factor in your space with a beautiful color.
Keep your background classic and tailored for an elegant look while you are living out your own glamorous life story.
