animal instinct.

Animal prints are nothing new - for years, they have famously made statements throughout fashion and home decor.  Often perceived as "trendy" and sometimes even tacky, when done right they exude a richly glamorous, yet fun, graphic style. The zebra print, with its classic black + white color scheme, is the perfect print to add some pop to almost any home [use instead of a bold b+w stripe to add a little more luxe to your look].

Here are a few photos that convey the versatility of this bold print - whether its an over-the-top glam accent to an already rich space, or a colorful version that exudes a graphic, preppy sensibility, the zebra print done right is perfectly divine.

  1. Well, I imagine it will come as no surprise when I say that, to me, animal prints are timeless. Even when they are "out" they always come back. Always. And even if they didn't, I'd still wear and use them anyway. Viva la zebra!

  2. Couldn't agree more - and the Style Maniac logo says it all! Thanks for stopping by! :)
