Me? I'm attracted to animal prints.
It's like a powerful magnetic force just pulls me towards them no matter where they might be hiding in a store. They call to me. And I usually answer. Ca-ching!
I find them irresistible.
There may be a scientific explanation for this. Seriously!
The phrase "Animal Magnetism" was coined way back in the 18th century by a German doctor who believed animals gave off an invisible natural force, which could have physical effects, such as healing.
Hmmm...Animal Print Magnetism...
I'm positive that is the reason why I always feel better after I buy an animal print throw, or a pillow, or handbag...
I like to think of it as my very own version of pet therapy.
I've never met a room that clashes with animal prints, and I tend to use them as neutrals.
Whenever I add an animal print element, it brings an energy to the room.
Of course, they need to be used in the right way...too much of a good thing, is no longer a good thing.
You know what I mean...we've all seen someone in the mall wearing a leopard-print coat, cheetah print boots, and a zebra-striped scarf. No-no-no-no-no.
But as an accent piece? Oh yes. It's similar to the theory that we should always use a little black in every room. Maybe I went a bit overboard in this room. I'll move some to another room. They are neutral, after all.

There's hardly a magazine spread that doesn't feature some sort of animal print object in the room...
...which is kind of like my house. Almost all of my rooms have a little cheetah or leopard in them.
Mr. Goo Shoes isn't a big fan animal prints. I had to use all of my charms to convince him to get these chairs...
The animal print trend has been around for years, and I hope it never goes away.

Not that I'll change my ways, even if they are no longer fashionable. A leopard doesn't change it's spots, after all, and neither do I.
