using zebra print

Eclectic Revisisted
I am working on a family room project that involves a heavy dose of zebra print. Zebra is my favorite animal print, hands down. But if you put it with the wrong things, it can end up looking like a teenager's room (not bad if that's what you're going for) or something out of the red light district (always bad).

Here are some of the beautiful rooms I've been using as inspiration for how to use zebra the right way. They all use simple, mostly neutral palettes and timeless furniture to contrast the bold animal print.

If these are the inspiration for your project, I have no doubt that it will be beautiful and tasteful. Have fun.

Oh I just love the print. It always amazes me how it can look so amazing even in a very traditional space. Pretty pretty.
