Animal Wallpapers

No, not like animal print, but actual illustrations of the entire animal.  It’s not for everyone…although maybe it is?  I could see some of these in even the most traditional homes – adds just the right amount of whimsy and humor to  a space.  And every home needs a little bit of humor, right?  We don’t want to take ourselves too seriously.

This zebra pattern from Scalamandre is a classic.  Yep, I said it, classic.  It’s been around since the 40’s and still going strong.


Do you remember it from Wes Anderson’s The Royal Tenenbaums?


One of my favorites right now is Osborne & Little’s Best in Show…


Leave it to O&L to create a dog patterned wallpaper that looks modern and elegant.   Now we just need one with cat silhouettes.

I immediately thought of my friend Amy when I came across this wallpaper from Grow House Grow.  How cute and completely random is this?  This monkey is really enjoying life…he’s eating an ice cream cone, holding an umbrella, smoking a pipe.  Amy, this belongs in your house.


I think flamingos are totally underrated.  They really are beautiful birds.  They have such an elegant shape with their long legs – and their coloring!  Gorgeous with their shades of white, pink and deep coral.  Here are two of my favorite flamingo patterned wallpapers…

From Cole & Son:


Love the colors in this one


Do you guys have other animal patterned wallpapers you like?
