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!

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.

Maybe a white background fabric to soften the look? Or, dark and moody?
