How to Put Animal Art to Work for You

It doesn’t take much time on Facebook to realize how much people love animals.

Have you had your daily dose of adorable kittens and talented terriers?
  
Most people respond favorably to images of the non-scary animals like domestic cats, dogs, rabbits, horse, chickens and some exotic animals.

You can tap into this warm and fuzzy feeling by including some animal art when you stage your home.

I have blogged about the why and how of using animal images for staging, and I gave examples in that post of what to avoid.

Animal art can get a little tricky. You want to avoid anything too schmaltzy-sentimental or anything that looks scary. If you're shopping for animal art that helps your staging, stay away from discount stores and the taxidermy shop and you'll be okay.

Here are some examples of animal art that could add good staging style to a house.

Horses are always classy. This black and white image is a winner.
I know it's old fashioned and elitist, but it's also just plain nice to look at --
dogs painted in the English style, to the hunt or at rest like these.
One sure way to add a jolt of color is to choose a colorful animal. Flamingos and tropical fish 
are favorites, especially if your home has a tropical or coastal vibe. HDWallpapers. 
How to do a gallery wall the right way, with all the prints in
 matching frames, the same subject matter, and all having about the
same amount of visual weight. You're always safe with bird prints.
Don't these two sea horses look friendly? And don't they fill an
alcove with cozy charm? Roughan Interiors.
