Spot the leopard – an exotic print for interiors

Leopard print is so perennial. It never seems to date and it is always in style. It evokes a sense of glamour and exoticness. It is one of my most favourite prints and I’m always drawn to it – must be the Africa in me!

In the past animal skins were used by kings and people of nobility as a symbol of wealth and high status. These days, it is mostly faux fur or textiles but the glamour is still there.  Not only is animal print worn but it is used extensively in interior decor and design.

The following are some examples of how leopard skin can be incorporated into your home
