These are great! I love a touch of animal print, but I've found that I don't like anything that closely resembles the actual hide, in shape or in texture, even when faux. It's like, I don't need to be reminded of where my hamburger comes from, ya know? :)

I'm terrified of animal print. I don't know if I have the confidence to use it. But that picture of the bedroom with the stool at the end of the bed definitely has me reconsidering my position!!

Happy New Year, Lindsay! I've been out of the loop, but peeking in every now and again! Hope your holidays were good! I love a good animal print. Especially when they pop in a room, like that zebra rug... yum!

Emily said...

Love all of these, just enough of the wild, not too overbearing!

Deliciously Organized said...

I will always love a good animal print...even when it's totally out of style. Just can't get enough of it.

I l-o-v-e zebra rugs. I feel like I'm always saving pictures of rooms with them.

I went and bought a cheap one from UrbanOutfitters on Newbury Street last year though, and it looked great -- for about 5 minutes. Every little white fuzzy and piece dust shows on the black stripes, and every teeny speck of dirt shows on the white stripes.

It was a mess! Love the look, but not practical for apartment dwellers that have to actually LIVE in our rooms!

Haven and Home said...

Agree!

wow I missed some great posts. LOVE these rooms!!
