The Big Cat Obsession - Cheetah, Leopard, and Jaquer Prints


Follow any fashion trend, celebrity siting, or decorating blog/magazine and one thing is for sure - big cat prints will always capture our attention.  Whether it is a small accent such as a pillow, lamp shade, decorative piece, or a big focal point within a room and especially a gorgeous pair of shoes, a handbag, or piece of clothing...that big cat is here to stay.

Gathering a few of my favorite interiors displaying these majestic animal prints was almost therapeutic.  My favorite, the three big cats: Cheetah, Leopard, and Jaguers.  If you want to know more on how to spot the difference, check out The Big Cat Blog, but as a quick reference, the color combinations, type of spot pattern, and their placement gives you a head start identifying your cat.

In the meantime, almost any upholstered piece can handle the bold print within any style of home.

Making the big cats a prominent feature in your space works well within unusual setting.  Tiling a bathroom wall, adding wallpaper behind a feature wall, integrating carpet tiles for everyday seating, or going bold with a large piece of furniture may do the trick.  Either way, the print has the power to hold its own in any environment..

Don't be surprised if you see me in any version of this print feeling comfortably chic in a beautiful scarf, pair of flats, or a favorite bag. My obsession with this print has stood the test of time...and it will do the same for your interior spaces.
