25 Zebra Living Room Decorating Ideas That'll Never Go Out Of Style
1. Paired with Black Leather
A whole furniture suite in zebra print will overpower some rooms. For a subtler look, taper it down with one large piece set next to black leather.
A bold, large zebra printed piece of furniture like an ottoman or armchair pairs perfectly with a black leather sofa.
2. Zebra Rug with Bright Colors
A zebra rug looks great against bright, bold walls and furniture. The black and white coloring doesn’t get lost when contrasted with bright yellows, greens, and pinks.
This makes a perfect addition to a bright Moroccan or Mexican-styled room, adding a unique finish.
3. Black and White
Create a sexy and stylish design by decorating your living room completely in black and white. Zebra prints add a great point of interest to this monotone design.
Leather, glass, and silver metals are all great choices of materials in this room design choice.
4. Safari Theme Room
Create a safari theme room with animal prints, dark wooden furnishings, antique wall maps, navigation, and tropical plants.
A zebra print peeking out among the dark woods, muted gold, and bright colors looks beautiful in this classic theme.
5. Set Against Red
Get dramatic with zebra print set against deep reds. The color combination of red, black, and white make for a bold, striking interior.
6. Animal Print Cushions
Zebra cushions are great for adding just a touch of this pattern without overpowering a space.
These fun prints add a playful splash of color and warmth to a space. Pair a zebra and leopard print cushion for added texture and color.
7. Against Muted Color
Zebra prints can get lost against a flurry of vivid colors or an array of ornaments and trinkets. If you want the design to really stand out, try pairing it with soft, muted colors in your living room.
Soft greys, light blues, and pale woods can create a minimalist color scheme that really draw the eye to a zebra print.
8. Zebra Wallpaper with Wood
Zebra patterns pair beautifully with warm brown colors. Add zebra wallpaper to accent a wood-paneled room, or add zebra prints to a room dominated by warm, wooden furniture.
9. Minimalist Designs
Minimalist designs full of white, chrome, and grays can be sleek, but the monochrome color scheme can be too stark for some.
A zebra rug can add depth and interest to these designs. Add a large piece of pastel or pale-colored furniture to complement this addition with a splash of bright color.
10. Zebra Wall Prints
Zebra prints make a popular framed art piece. A well-lit, quality print is an eye-catching addition to a living room wall.
To get the best effect, hang them on an off-white wall. Keep the rest of the room monotone, except for a couple of brightly colored accents.
11. Pair with Deep Browns
Zebra prints work really well with brown color schemes, especially deep chocolate browns. A zebra rug or print looks great with deep brown leather or dark wood furniture.
Keeping other parts of the room in lighter shades also creates a wonderful contrast to this color scheme.
12. Block Stripes
Thick black and white zebra stripes add a playful charm to any living room. These stripes can be included in a versatile range of designs.
13. Combined with Plants
Filling a room with large amounts of greenery can create a fresh and vibrant space. Combine that with some black and white zebra prints to add to the jungle look.
Keep the rest of the room in black and white, or combine it with wooden floorings and furnishings.
14. Luxury Decor
Zebra prints are great accent pieces for lavish living room furnishings. Pair zebra prints with deep colors, marble floorings, or draping curtains.
The key here is subtlety. Opt for smaller pieces, such as a throw, small furnishings, or a few cushions to complete the room’s look
15. Hot Pinks
Zebra Prints go hand in hand with bright, bold colors. And you can’t get bolder than hot pink. But feel free to try the same look with electric blue if pink isn’t your thing.
By keeping the rest of the room plain, you can use a heavy hand and make a real statement with a combination of pink and zebra patterns on the walls and furnishings.
16. Painted Furniture
Another way to add a touch of zebra printed fun is with a small design painted onto furniture.
This can add a unique touch to otherwise plain furniture and can be a fun DIY project with just a stencil and some white paint needed.
17. Against All White
An all-white living room is a popular choice as it gives a fresh, bright, and clean look, without losing sophistication.
However, adding some touches of texture will stop the eye from becoming lost among the paler colors. A stylish way to accomplish this is with a zebra rug or wall hanging.
18. Bright and Modern
Bright Orange is a bold color for a living room wall but paired with the right furnishings it gives the room a fresh and modern feel. This is a great way to overhaul a tired space.
Pair bright oranges with zebra print and wicker furnishings, and add splashes of bright green with fresh plants.
19. Zebra Ottomans
Ottomans are one of the most popular zebra printed furnishings. The large piece can sit as a beautiful focal point in the living room.
These printed ottomans work with a range of brighter colors, or can add a point of interest in a room with muted colors. A great way to add a splash of vibrancy to a room.
20. Wall Hangings
This is a playful addition to a living room, and a great way to try out adding an animal print to your decor without making permanent changes. Opt for a beautiful woven or knitted design.
A zebra print hanging combines well with a room using bright bold colors, especially primary colors.
21. Green and Orange
Bright, vivid oranges and greens play off the black and white of the zebra stripes in this design choice.
For a funky, bold look use a heavy hand with these three elements in your living room design. For a subtler look, use splashes of these three colors against a milder background.
22. Vivid and Decadent
Zebra prints are right at home among a decadent living room style filled with velvet, deep violets and pinks, and oversized artworks.
If you want to go all out with your living room design, add a touch of the wild with a zebra print design.
23. Colorful Accents
Create a stylish but playful living room design with a focus on black, white, and zebra patterns with occasional touches of bright color to break it up.
Use bright pinks, teals, oranges, or electric blues over black and white designs. For example, use colorful cushions on zebra chairs, or a bright throw over a zebra ottoman.
24. Tropical Jungle Design
Incorporate many elements of tropical or jungle designs together in the same room for a busy and colorful design.
Combining many shades of brown, plants, and animal prints into a room creates a sophisticated decor that nods to the jungle without being overbearing.
25. Silver and Black
Zebra prints alongside silver and black create an opulent look. Set heavy black velvet and silver furnishings over zebra carpeting to achieve this luxurious decor choice.
