Animal Instinct?

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

I know some of you may cringe when you hear the words 'animal print' and I agree, when overused it can be quite repulsive indeed... But I must confess, I do have a little soft spot for zebra prints when used tastefully and tactfully. They can be fun, sexy and stylish all at the once! I am entertaining the thought of introducing a splash here and there as I decorate our apartment. I am thinking I might like a pair of footstools to sit along side each other on one side of the coffee table but am not sure I am brave enough to go with the typical bold black and white zebra stripe. I do fancy the softer turquoise as seen below though...

What do you think? Can I pull it off? Should I follow my animal instinct and live a little on the wild side?


  1. Stumbled over while searching for something else, so glad I did...these are such a great group of images. Really love everything. As to your instincts...I say go for it!

  2. Thanks so much for your comment!

    i too have a thing for a bit of zebra!
    Zebra is animal without being gaudy - go for it. Funny i just discovered your post i was just about to do one of my own on zebra - great minds think alike (if i do say so myself!) looks like you have a good blank canvass to work with too - im a bit of a fan of zebra with some pink or turquioise around it!

    oh & p.s your bathtub is divine ~

  5. Ah, Sally I agree! Zebra, pink and turquoise is precisely the look I am hoping to achieve with some cool blue/grey tones thrown in for good measure :)
