These 10 design ideas for animal lovers express our affinity for animals with imagination and style. For those of us who find inspiration from animals, these adorable designs will lift our spirits and soothe our souls. Incorporating these designs into your home is a beautiful proclamation of love for the animal kingdom. It is an appreciation of the diverse species that share this planet with us. 

If you're looking to add life to your home, integrating portraits of animal life into your living space can breathe life into dull spaces. You can also invite animals into your home by making a space for them with traditional ideas such as a birdbath, or more modern ideas such as a wild bee house. 

This ideabook features some lovely animal paintings, creative animal-inspired furniture and homeware, and mini animal hotels for visiting animal guests. Browsing through this ideabook might be a bit more sophisticated than watching cat videos on YouTube, but conjure up similar emotions nevertheless. 

Minimalist Animal Painting

This beautiful painting of snowbears will camouflage perfectly in a white, minimalist styled living room. Peintre Animalier specialises in animal paintings and potrays dominant colour schemes in his paintings, ideal for minimalist designs.  

Animal Painting With a Red Colour Scheme

This animal painting with a red colour scheme creates a design that is simple and rich in red tones. This majestic elephant feels up close and personal in the perspective that it's been drawn in. Let's hope it doesn't give us a fright in the morning! 

Peintre Animalier also has a variety of other animal paintings to astonish you. 

Comforting Doggy Cushion

It's impossible not to be comforted by those gentle Doberman eyes peering at you. The artist has beautifully captured the emotion in a dog's eyes which evokes feelings of kindness and compassion. The orange coloured background also adds to the warmth of this adorable piece of art. 

The artists at Thuline, Studio Gallery also have other animal prints featured on cushions, such as sheep, geese, and highland cows. 

Gothic Owl Lamp

This gothic styled lamp features an owl. Being a nocturnal bird, the owl is said to represent death and darkness. The dark side of the owl is aptly expressed in this lamp. 

Spider Table

A table fit for Spiderman, this creative design is inspired by our eight-legged friends. Its artistic and unique design is amiable even if spiders creep you out!
