How to tame a leopard: add a fashion trend to your interior - etk-fashion.com

Animal prints which season is confidentkeep on the list of trends, but it is the leopard that is still wary and most often biased. We are in a hurry to debunk the myths about this bold pattern and tell you how to use it correctly. Defiant, aggressive, lurid, tasteless, vulgar - what epithets are awarded to the leopard pattern! In the wake of the popularity of animal prints, zebras, panthers, giraffes and other representatives of the African fauna have already appeared in Russian houses, but many are simply afraid to get involved with leopards. However, the opinion that this print is inappropriate is nothing more than a relic of the past and the consequences of inept use. We know how to handle this "beast", and in this article we share with you ideas for its competent implementation in the interior. Underfoot When it comes to leopard printprint, carpet is probably the easiest way to implement such a print in the interior. The carpet can be large or small, hard or fluffy, rectangular or in the shape of an animal's skin, placed on the floor or on the wall. The main plus is that if you get tired of the leopard or you want to radically change the situation, the carpet is quickly and painlessly cleaned, and if necessary, it returns to its place just as quickly. Fresh look If a leopard in a classic lookyou absolutely do not like it, but you want to try it, we recommend that you pay attention to any unusual interpretations of this pattern. All sorts of stylizations, atypical color combinations, original texture, transition to another print and back: just look at the photo below and make sure that the leopard may not look like itself at all. Color grading Another way to get away fromthe usual visual image of a leopard pattern - choose a print in completely new and unusual colors for an animal skin. It can be a combination of red and white, fuchsia and beige, purple and powdery - the list is endless. Such an unusual leopard looks especially good in contrast with other patterns and bright colors like orange, green or boiling white. Flora and fauna Since in the previous paragraph wetouched upon the theme of combination with other prints, recall the close proximity of flora and fauna in wildlife. Where there are animals, there will always be jungles, prairies, forests and any other accumulations of vegetation. That is why we recommend trying a combination of leopard and floral designs. The second mutes the aggressiveness of the first, and together they look very fresh and eclectic. Bright details Being in the background is the lot of everyonetoo bright and active print, but the leopard copes even with small episodic roles. Lamp shade, document folder, decorative pillow or cutting board: if a rug or chair upholstery in a leopard pattern is already too much for you, feel free to use it in small but bright and unexpected details. For the bravest If you are not afraidexperiments and love eclecticism, we advise you to dare for something truly bold: for example, give all the walls in a leopard print or upholstery with a bright spotted fabric the legs of the dining table. Provocative? Perhaps, but this is what we are trying to achieve. When making the leopard the centerpiece of your design, be sure to keep furniture and furnishings in place. Italian chic Italian designer and fashion designerRoberto Cavalli needs no introduction - everyone knows his name.
