Are you looking for an edgy detail for your next design project? Black and white skull prints might be just what you’re looking for. I’ve put together a great collection of ‘skull print’ inspiration to help you on your way. Fabrics, wallpaper, throw pillows, ceramic plates, you name it. There are lots of possibilities for you to consider. Let’s start with a fantastic design example of what you can do with this fun design element. I absolutely love the design of this styling salon. Just the kind of place I would like to hang out in for hours. Which is sometimes what it takes to manage my unruly hair. The black skull wallpaper accent wall is awesome!
These black and white skull plate patterns would make a great table setting for your Halloween or Day of the Dead celebrations…
Unfortunately, this skull print upholstered chair is no longer available but I had to show it as an example of what can be done with this fun print. You can always reupholster your own chair with a similar fabric if you have to have this look.
A couple more skull patterns to take in…
A detail shot of the Grateful Head Salon. Their logo is shown on the black bag hanging on the wall. So cool!
Maybe you’d prefer a couple throw pillows for your sofa?
Here’s a closeup of a black skull wallpaper from Graham and Brown. It’s the perfect mix of subtle with edgy, don’t you think?
Maybe a white background fabric to soften the look? Or, dark and moody?
Here’s an overall view of the Grateful Head Salon. You can see the black skull wallpaper accent wall in the back. Nice, subtle detail.
Or, maybe you would prefer to wear this design element with these scarves from Alexander McQueen…
So, what do you think of the use of black and white skull prints in interior design? Would you use this edgy design element in one of your designs?
I’m really impressed with all the creative ways that companies are recycling old tires these days. I’ve been using rubber flooring made from recycled tires in my design projects for years. But, there are so many more options if you want to incorporate this unusual material into your interior design projects.
Take this stylish table and chair set for example. I really love the woven look to these and the table base is fantastic!
I really like the texture on this recycled tire basket and imagine how durable these would be:
I’ve always been a big fan of black floors. They make such a nice neutral backdrop to pop accent colors off of. This is a retail space with a rubber floor made from old car tires.
Picture Frames? …I never would have thought of this but I love the result! The texture from the different tire tread designs is so cool…
These bracelets from Urban Lace Jewelry are awesome!!! They also make a fun, lacey mask that would be perfect for a costume party.
Baa Baa Black Sheep…Who new that recycled inner tubes could be so adorable?
A larger basket design for your magazines and such. I have this one on my wish list for my husband’s bathroom reading…
How about a flower pot holder? The durability from the old tires would work perfectly for this application.
Super cool storage solution…
What do you think about these innovative solutions to solving our tire disposal problem? Do you know some other great uses to add to the list?
