Decorating trend: Animal Print

Sharpen your style claws with a double dose of wallpaper. Funk it up with teal – it’s the colour of the season.

Wallpaper in a lively print makes the perfect backdrop for fitted storage.

Let accessories and objet stand out.

Mix strong patterns to shake up a classic space.

Accentuate proportions by papering the ceiling too.

Clashing animal prints might seem dangerous, but use in a neutral palette to add sophistication.

Layer bold and subtle prints for elegant impact.
