More Wild


I just love seeing a nice leopard-print carpet in a rather traditional home. Its a reminder that animal print is a classic and can be mixed in with most styles.

Oh. My. Goodness.
I love that foyer! I can't wait to see what you go with. I think those spots would look phenomenal with that peacock blue you've got going on.

I think that some animal prints can really be used as a neutral -- I have a friend whose entire house was carpeted in cheetah-print and it really worked with tons of different colors and styles!

Gorgeous! I can't tell you how much I adore this house. Animal print is the perfect spicy neutral.

Just goes to show that classic lines have animal magnetism.
Love your new look. Did you do this yourself, the new layout? I need help to make my images larger.
Any advice is so appreciated.

I just practically jumped out of my seat-- there are so many elements to this image that I love. How I wish that I had the skill to put patterns together so well. Love the black and white tile and the ginger jars-- pretty much everything!

What a gorgeous entry! I'm always a fan of animal prints (in moderation) and it looks great as a stair runner here. Love you new blog design too!
