I adore a little leopard as an accent on a clutch or a small handbag. It adds a sexy tone to even an ordinary look.

This room shown in a recent Architectural Digest issue is simple in nature; uniformed frames, plain white walls, and subtle color blocks. What would have been an ordinary room suddenly has an air of wild, with the addition of the zebra rug.

Animal prints add glamour and sophistication as well. I love this arm chair from Ralph Lauren. It can give an interior that refined look you can't get from any other print.

Imagine this bench in the middle of a room with dark walls and furniture silhouettes. Sexy!

The rug below is amazing. It combines one of my favorite colors for interiors, kelly green, with a life-size leopard shape. Two for one!

Diane von Furstenberg can't resist animal prints, just like me!

Animal prints easily work in any room, whether a bedroom or even a dining room. They don't overpower the design; rather they add drama.

I will always enjoy using animal prints in my interiors. History has shown they'll never go out of style!
