I love incorporating animal prints into both my interior design projects and my wardrobe and am utterly obsessed with this image of Joan Smalls from  John Paul Gaultier's Fall '13 couture show looking fierce in a leopard printed coat.

I scoured for a few of my favorite animal printed home decor finds to get the look –– from a python patterned lamp and sexy leopard sheet set to zebra printed dish towels and a faux tortoise shell sculpture … so you can show off your wild side at home!
