First, Decide What Kind of Zebra Interior You Want.
Alright! So, you want to create a zebra interior in your home? Awesome! But before you start slapping zebra print everywhere, there are a few things you need to decide. Do you want a black-and-white zebra interior, or a subtler design with hints of zebra print? How much of the design do you want to be in your home? Do you want walls covered in zebra print, or accents like pillows, rugs or curtains? Take some time to think about what kind of look you want, and be realistic about what will work in your space. (This article we wrote earlier will explain). Start by sketching out some ideas and then looking for inspiration online. There are loads of great ideas out there, and chances are you'll be able to find something that's perfect for your home.
Zebra interiors are a great way to add some personality and pizzazz to your space. Once you decide on the general look, it'll be easier to start picking out specific pieces. Now’s when you think about your color scheme. It's always best to stick with just a few colors and use different shades and tints of those colors. That way, your zebra interior will be cohesive and look like it was meant to be together. Additionally, don't go too crazy with the accessories. A little bit of zebra print goes a long way, so don't overdo it. If everything in your home is zebra print, it'll just look like a tacky circus rather than a stylish interior design choice.
Second, Find the Right Furniture and Accents.
When it comes to creating a zebra interior, it's all about finding the right furniture and accents. You want to mix black and white pieces together to create that signature look. Start by choosing a black and white couch as your focal point. From there, add in some white chairs and a black coffee table. Don't forget the little details, like a zebra-print rug or some colorful throw pillows. The key is to mix and match different textures and patterns to create a unique look that's all your own. So have fun with it, and experiment until you find the perfect combination of black and white items for your home.
You want to make sure that everything in your space echoes the same black-and-white vibe. Start by choosing a color scheme and sticking to it. This will make it easy to find pieces that fit the look and feel of your space. In my mind, I’d add, mix and match different styles—a touch of leopard print or plants in corners of the rooms can add a bit of personality to the mix. And not forgetting the lighting! A bright white light can really help to brighten up a space and create that zebra effect. If you're looking for something a little more unique, try installing a black light. This will help to bring out the details in your furniture and accessories.
Third, Pull It All Together With the Right Accessories.
Pulling your zebra interior together, is all about the accessories. So, think about what you want to achieve with your space. Do you want it to be fun and whimsical, or more elegant and refined? Once you have a sense of what you're going for, start adding in some key pieces. A few throw pillows in different shades of black and white, for example, or zebra hide pillows as well, to help ground the look and add some contrast. You can also go with a black and white theme when it comes to artwork, curtains, area rugs, and more. Just be sure to keep things coordinated and consistent throughout the space. And if you're ever stuck, just think about the zebra's classic black-and-white pattern—it's sure to inspire you!
There's no doubt that a zebra interior can make a bold statement in your home. If you're looking to add a touch of glamor, sophistication, and elegance, then this is the perfect style for you.
