Lions and Tigers and Zebras??? Oh my!

14 Dec

I have been on a major animal print kick lately.  And like a lot people, my decorating style is oftentimes influenced by my fashion style.  It started with a hunt for any article of clothing that was in leopard print.  I love mixing blacks and browns, and leopard is a great way to do that!

But when it comes to animal print for home decor purposes, I am really digging the zebra print.

{By the way… I just learned how to “collage” with my image collections.  Seems like everybody in the blog world is “doin it”, so I obviously had to.  I hope you enjoy!}

Love it…

Now don’t feel like you’re limited to the “traditional” animal print colors like the neutrals shown above.  Zebra can look GREAT in vibrant colors!
Note:  This can very quickly go from chic to cheap looking, so proceed with caution. 🙂

    I’ve had some navy zebra throw pillows on my couch for a few years (they go great with my Ikat pillows!!) John Robshaw’s stuff is amazing, here’s the link- I’m pretty sure you will love.
