We have several animal accents in our home. They work for many reasons, one of which is that animal print can act as a neutral and go with many types of decor and color schemes. I also think animal accents can work over time, somehow managing to pull of a sophisticated look and still seem a bit whimsical. Animal statutes and bookends can feel at home in almost any room. Whether it's a vintage brass animal, marble bookends or staffordshire dogs you can be sure they will become a conversation piece, or at the very least the cleanest pet you've ever had!
