Who says interior decorating has to be serious? Keep things light-hearted and playful by adding small touches of animal whimsy around the home. Just the right side of kitsch, creature comforts inject fun into even the most grown-up of schemes.
Get the look
1 Animal pieces can easily become overpowering, so use sparingly, and scatter throughout your home. Add a cushion in the spare room, plus bookends and ornamental ashtrays in the living room, for a cheeky lift.
2 Tableware is the easiest way to carry out this look. Mismatch animal motif plates and serving bowls with plain white crockery, for a charming dinner party.
3 If you are feeling bold, try a single stunning centrepiece such as a wall hanging or a piece of animal art. Teamed with neutral furniture, this is an elegant way to bring a lyrical element to a room.
