Girls Exotic Animal Print Bedding and Themed Bedroom Decorating Ideas in Pink, Purple and More
There was a time when decorating ideas for a bedroom using animal print bedding sets was when a jungle theme was in the works. The comforter sets were made from fabrics with patterns in colors that exactly mimicked the fur of the wild animals in their natural state.
In those days, wild animal print comforter sets used primarily in decorating master bedrooms for adults with requests for a few teen girls' bedrooms with an exotic look. Today, I get more orders for purple leopard and hot pink zebra print bedding and decor than wild animal prints in natural colors.
As the range of colors that animal print bedding come in has expanded by leaps and bounds so has the demand of zebra bedding, leopard, cheetah and giraffe print bedding. Nobody seemed to pay much attention to the fact that pink and brown giraffe print was "unnatural" or to proclaim that purple leopard was outrageous. To the contrary, the wild colors when seen used in these familiar patterns were embraced because of their versatility, unique look and the anticipation of new and exciting bedroom decorating ideas that were sure to follow.
HOW TO DECORATE A WILD ANIMAL BEDROOM THEME
A common mistake that amateur (and some professional!) decorators tend to make is to slap too much of a single animal print all over everything in the bedroom. A room with leopard print or zebra stripes everywhere you look starts to look like something a caveman might have designed.
The key is to choose your favorite print and the best color. Let's use purple zebra bedding as an example. If you have a purple zebra comforter set, you might layer on purple leopard or cheetah print throw pillows to offset the striped pattern while staying with the purple color scheme. The same idea would hold true for choosing the best curtains.
