Animal House

With the first day of Autumn fast approaching on the 22nd, we’re embracing the chilly breeze with some new designs to suit the season. Animal prints are coming straight off the catwalk and into our home to add something wild and adventurous as the summer retreats. Whether you’re wrapping up in faux fur or stepping out in mock croc, there’s something here to match the mood.

Chic and classic both describe the shimmering subtlety of new Snake Charmer fabric from Diane von Furstenberg. Green and grey are moving from pastels to deeper shades, reflecting the cool and calm interiors theme we’ve seen throughout this year. Jungle and foliage prints are the perfect accomplice to tempting tiger stripes in a velvet-soft chenille by Travers.

Turn your home into a place to be celebrated with a touch of regal glamour. The mix of wool texture and foiled snakeskin design in Ungaro offers something unexpected, seamlessly tossing together modern and traditional. Brilliantly versatile leopard print spots are never out of fashion for long, and we can’t resist the indulgent, tribal air they lend to cushions and upholstery. Creating movement is important once the light gets lower and there are no open windows bringing in a breeze, so we’d recommend the soft swirls and shimmers of Capella by Jane Churchill.

Looking for some redecoration that will really have an impact? To create a stunning feature wall the unique Mutie vinyl wallcovering is a guaranteed talking point. Part animal-print, part tree bark, there’s an artistic combination of materials and effects at work that we’ve come to expect from quirky brand Arte.
