If you really want to make a statement in your home, buy into the animal-themed wallpaper trend that’s currently cropping up on Pinterest boards and interiors blogs alike. SL’s Leading Ladies (and our very own Editor, Georgie, who has Cole & Son’s Pink Flamingos in her bathroom), tend to agree, and we love its ability to completely transform a room with just one day of decorating.
“Animal print wallpapers can really jazz up a space; great for adding an element of surprise to a small cloakroom or for injecting a touch of fun to a children’s bedroom,” attests Anna Hewitson, Founder of Anna Hewitson Design, while Camilla Hampton, Founder of Camilla Hampton Interiors adds, “They can add a real wow factor to a room and at the same time intrigue. I love Juliet Travers’ papers, inspired by Africa – so chic for a drawing room or hallway - and I adore Paperboy for children's rooms – subtle and chic again but playful.”
Take a look at those, and more of some of the most desirable wallpapers in our edit below, and if you’re still not convinced to take the plunge, take comfort from Louisa Penn, Founder of Louisa Penn Interiors, who confirms, “The great thing about animal print wallpapers is they work well with any style of furniture; be it traditional, mid-century, or contemporary. Perfect for dressing rooms, cloakrooms, bathrooms and children’s bedrooms, they inject a little humour and personality into an interior”.
Whether you choose bold and beautiful or subtle and soft, these wall coverings will transform a room in an instant.
