Decorating with Animal Prints: Pillows

1/ Traditional Home  2/ The Visual Vamp

Let’s start with something easy, shall we? Animal print pillows.

For those of you that like just a wee splash of animal print in your home, then start with a few great animal print pillows. I love the yellow contrast that the piping adds to the pillows on the left. Animal prints pair great with just about any color, including tangerine as shown on the right. The white and tangerine pillows on the sofa also mimic tiger stripes.
