2019 marked the comeback of animal print and it looks like it’s here to stay. Animal print is everywhere so why not include them in your bespoke blinds. From making fashion-forward statements on the runway to being splattered over your office stationery, it’s made its way into our homes. The thought of adding animal print can be a little daunting for the faint-hearted, you may think animal print is a little OTT or tacky, but it doesn’t have to be! Brixham Blinds offer a range of bespoke blinds to help you stay on top of the latest interior trends. These simple steps can help incorporate animal print into your home, giving it a whole new lease of life.
Striking Bespoke Blinds
Zebra print is ideal if you’re nervous about adding animal print into your home. The monochrome colours are subtle and go with everything.
Top tip: Use a zebra print rug to draw the eye to a special feature in your home. The directional lines of the print will help guide the eye to a focus point in your room. This could be anything such as a gallery wall, a single piece of artwork or some bold feature blinds. You could even continue the horizontal striped theme with some of Brixham Blinds’ bespoke Venetian blinds, giving your room a modern, classy look.
If you’re not afraid of going big and bold in your home, mixing animal print with any other patterns will give your home that extravagant feeling. Go bold and mix florals with zebra, paisley with leopard and checks with a rustic faux hide.
Top tip: Mix prints throughout the room at every level for a natural feel. This can be done by clashing rug patters, or if you’re feeling really bold, mix the patterns of your curtains and blinds to make your home unique. Why not go the extra mile with some bespoke blinds? Brixham Blinds offer a range of patterns (including an amazing black and white striped pattern) and colours to help create the perfect bespoke blinds for you.
Bespoke Blinds in Quirky Colours
Just because you’ve never seen a pink and white zebra or a navy cheetah doesn’t mean you can’t feature the pattern in your home. Go bold with bright coloured animal prints or subtle with neutrals.
Top tip: If you want your animal print to be a simple, subtle addition to your home then choose a colour already heavily featured. Keep it simple with the perfect grey printed rug that will match your permanent fixtures such as units or blinds perfectly. Brixham Blinds’ lightweight and elegant Roman blinds are available in a range of colours. The lightweight material means these bespoke blinds won’t be an overwhelming addition to your home, whatever colour you choose.
One small step to incorporating animal print in your home is with accessories. This can subtly add animal print into literally any room, with a range of accessories available. Animal print vases, mirrors and photo frames will help give your home that added personal touch.
Top tip: Fill your windowsill with animal print accessories such as vases, candles and plant pots to add that something extra. This is ideal for rooms that often have plain blinds drawn, meaning the prints will stand out even more. Intu blinds from Brixham Blinds offer a sleek, stylish range of bespoke blinds, available in pleated and roller form. These fitted blinds are space-saving, meaning there’s even more room for your animal print accessories.
Make your sofa stand out with animal print throws and cushions; the perfect combination of comfort and style. If you have a bold coloured sofa, choose a monochrome zebra print.
Top tip: Save money and upcycle your old cushions with animal print fabric. These fabrics will help bring warmth into your home, giving it a cosy and welcoming feel. Why not add even more warmth to your room with fitted shutter blinds? These bespoke blinds are the perfect mix of modern and classic, go for a warm wood material for that extra bit of homeliness.
