As I looked around from my perch on the bed or on the sofa, I started to take note of all the things in my home decor that had a touch of inspiration from the wonderful world of animals. A print here, an accessory there. It got me to thinking that perhaps it’s time to dedicate a blog to animals and how there are countless ways to incorporate them into your interior for a bit of wild and whimsical fun!
