Animalia Final

The San Francisco Art & Antiques Show theme, Animalia: Animal Imagery in Art & Antiques got me thinking about how often I incorporate animals into my design.  These animal references add vitality to a space and exude warmth. 

A large snail purchased in the south of France provided a witty touch in my St. Helena dining room.  He got left behind when I moved but I’m sure that his new owners love him too.  I adore a Marin kitchen eating area that I designed around a Damien Hirst Butterflies print. The butterfly wings inspired the entire color palette.  I have also been known to cover a chair or an ottoman in a Clarence House tiger or leopard silk.
I suppose that in the end it’s somewhat instinctive for us to gravitate toward animal imagery.  “Lions and Tigers and Bears, oh my!”
