What Houzz contributors are saying:
These oversize animal statues stand up to the fearless zebra-striped rug and are an intentional addition to the room’s design. But the sculptures’ toned-down finish (and the lack of other animal prints in the room) keeps the look from shouting “safari.” The solid chair fabric and neutral wall paint balance the room’s bolder measures.
Beige, tan and ivory work great with light and dark shades of wood. Here is Mesa Verde Tan AC-33 by Benjamin Moore. Notice the wood floors are a contrasting color to the trim. The contrast is nice with the trim, while the darker colors are highlighted again in the rug.
It also works beautifully in a room with period trim, like this updated Arts and Crafts beauty.
