Antelope Prints in Home Decor

Antelope prints in home decor – always a popular topic around here.

Also sometimes referred to as deer or fawn prints, these antelope prints are also one of my favorite patterns, as you can clearly see.

Classic Antelope Print on stairs



Antelope Prints in Home Decor



I get so many questions about this chic print, especially our stair runners.

Today I thought I’d just go ahead and dedicate a whole post to this classic pattern.

Trends by their very nature, come and go…and then usually circle back again!

However, just like in fashion – there are some things that truly never really go out of style.

Of course I’m talking about antelope prints in home decor.

This nature inspired neutral pattern complements SO many different interior design styles, it’s no wonder it’s so popular.

If you too love this perennially stylish print, today’s  post will be right up your ally.

Carpets with an Antelope print are probably the most popular way to implement this pattern in the home.

To that end, I think stair runners are the most popular way to use antelope carpets in the home.

However, I’m obviously very partial here.

The top photo is of our old stair runner in our former home.

I love this stair runner so much, I went with it again, only even more so – in our current home here in Connecticut.

This cute photo of our dog, Cosmo  –  reminds me to add how great this carpet is for hiding dirt in high traffic areas and of course also ideal for pet owners!

I selected this beautiful pattern for our back stair case (above) and also for the stairs which lead to our attic (seen below.)

In addition to our stairs, I also went with this fun carpet in our mudroom hallway.

It’s not only pretty, and great for hiding dirt, but it’s also super durable.

Our carpet is from Stark, but there’s a lot of great looking less expensive options available.

I’ve gone ahead and featured several here.

This one below from Ballard is a great option.
