Into the Wild- Animal Inspired Homewares

Animals, insects, birds - they are everywhere – and what better way to add quirkiness and individuality to our homes. Animal inspired homewares have been creeping up on us for some time now and it continues to grow apace from the traditional country look through to anthropomorphic designs which bring real eccentricity to the look. Animal inspired homewares- Audenza Image sources from top left, clockwise: 1/ 2/ 3/ Leading the way in animal inspired interiors is Trove. I love Trove for their organic and random patterns on wallpaper – this one looks like a flock of birds rising into the air – how fabulous would that look on your conservatory wall? And, of course, no animal trend would be complete without mentioning Timorous Beasties and their fantastical designs. They take old pieces of furniture and adorn them with beasties for a wonderful contemporary feel. Rory Dobner is at the extreme end of animal whimsy – his imagery on textiles and ceramics brighten up our lives.

Whether you want to soften up the industrial look or add whimsical to the vintage look these designs work. Last, but never least, Abigail Brown’s adorable birds. I have loved these adorable creatures from the first and, although I do own one – Percy – who hops about my house, I would love to fill my summerhouse with them for my very own, mess free, avery. So when it comes to animal inspired homewares, it’s up to you – how quirky do you want to be? Jacqui x Into the Wild- Animal Inspired Homewares by Jacqui Brooks
