Home Decor: How to Add Exotic Details to Your Interiors
Try Animal Prints
Can zebras, leopards, and tigers all live in one room? Absolutely! The beauty of animal prints is that they go well with anything. This means that you can pick up a few décor items to highlight what you already have. One of the most popular prints is the zebra print which looks good on rugs, pillows, and even wallpaper. To add glamour to a room, pair animal prints with pastels. You can use prints of the same size or mix large and small prints.

Leverage Furnishings with Intricate Patterns
Choose furniture pieces that work well together – similar in scale and color. For a Mediterranean touch, add an antique dresser with Mediterranean style. If you want to embrace the tranquility of the east, buy some vibrant rugs and jewel-colored cushions. You can also buy cushions with fringing. Don’t shy away from using décor objects with mismatched patterns and clashing colors. When it comes to adding exotic décor, it’s ok to throw all caution to the wind.

Use Accent Lighting
Nothing sets the tone of a room like gorgeous light fixtures. Add one or two fixtures to a room and watch it transform into a work of art. While exotic lighting comes in many forms, glass and metal pendants are more popular. They add style, adventure, and romance to a room. You can use pendant lights in your bedroom in place of bedside lamps. You’ll add beauty to the room and declutter your nightstand.
