I think animal prints have had a bad rap lately. What with all this “Jersey Shore” and “Jerseylicious” nonsense, the leopard skin, the giraffe pattern, and the zebra print has been given an unfair toss into the “trashy” and “kitschy” world. I actually believe animal print (faux, screen printed) can be extremely minimalistic and classy. Thus begins my campaign to reclaim animals! For Example:

No animals were harmed in the making of that Elephant Bust. Via Anthropologie.

Can you believe this beauty was found in an only 450 square foot home? Here.
When in doubt, wrap an antler in colored and neon yarn! Insta-cool.
I cannot imagine any chair being more comfortable than this Sheepskin Fluffiness. Here.
Both images above via Desire to Inspire. Please note the Giraffe prints, the floral armchair, the owls, the horses (WE’RE IN A JUNGLE HERE PEOPLE).
“I believe there is no sickness of the heart too great it cannot be cured by a dose of Africa. Families must go there to learn why they belong together on this earth, adolescents to discover humility, lovers to plumb old but untried wells of passion, honeymooners to seal marriages with a shared sense of bafflement, those shopworn with life to find a tonic for futility, the aged to recognize a symmetry to twilight. I know this all sounds a bit much, but if I have ever seen magic, it has been in Africa.” – John Hemingway, African Journeys
