Go wild with the 2015 animal art trend and turn your home into a socially-responsible menagerie.
Love animals? All kinds of animals? Are you the kind of person who spends hours a week watching animal videos on Facebook? I certainly am–I can’t get enough of the animal kingdom on YouTube either. And we aren’t the only ones into animals either. In fact, animal motifs are one of the super big decorating trends of 2015. It seems like many of us like to take a walk on the wild side and connect with our furry, feathered and aquatic Earth companions. And not just through social media, but by decorating our spaces with animal art prints, patterns and accents.
Get in on the animal art trend by decorating your home with art inspired by the wild kingdom. From art prints and posters to photographs and sculpture, there’s plenty of cool animal art to go around. Whether you prefer your art to be more realistic or abstract and whether you are drawn to simple woodland creatures or more exotic animals, check out some of these examples and bring a little bit of fauna into your home.
