Animal prints in general are very bold and eye-catching and working with them is always challenging. The zebra print is a particularly interesting example. It’s still bold and vibrant but also somewhat simplified compared to other prints. This makes it a delightful accent for spaces like the bedroom which often need a burst of color or pattern to look and feel harmonious.
Keep the bedroom simple and visually relaxing and only use zebra print for accent pieces like the bench at the foot of the bed, the throw pillows or a piece of artwork.
If you prefer the décor to be a little more spicy and dynamic, choose a zebra print carpet and match it with a few other elements in the room, like a chair for example.
Throw pillows and cushions and excellent for introducing pattern into the bedroom. In this case, he nightstand lamps also incorporate the print into their design.
A bedroom can also look harmonious if you combine several different patterns but feature them in the same color combination, in this case black and white.
For the kids’ bedroom, find a fun way to incorporate this pattern, perhaps by using an actual zebra. This one is actually a TV holder so it combines function and fun in one cute design.
It can be fun to mimic the pattern in other ways throughout the room. For example, the striped window treatments relate nicely to the bedding.
In the case of the bedroom, it’s all about creating a relaxing, comfortable and calming atmosphere and you can still do that even with bold accent details like a zebra print bench or some accent pillows.
If you’d rather keep things simple and classical, use a zebra area rug. It will make the room feel extra cozy and it’s a nice way to create a focal point for the décor. Keep the color palette simple but feel free to add a few small burst of color here and there just to highlight some of your favorite pieces and accessories.
Another great way to change the look of a room is with wallpaper. An eye-catching print like this one can be a little distracting so only wallpaper the wall behind the bed and, if you want something interesting to look at, the ceiling as well.
You can induce the idea of the zebra print without actually using the traditional design. It’s enough to combine black and white in striped patterns like here for example.
On the other hand, you can use the classical print but with unconventional colors like white and purple or black and blue, etc. there are actually quite a few combinations to choose from.
And speaking of colors and interesting combinations, would you say this mix is too much? The zebra print alone would make the bedroom stand out and the green accents give it an even more edgy look.
Perhaps something more subtle would be more soothing, like this combination of black, white and blue. A very nice use of the zebra print in the form of wall art.
