Zebra Zazzle

Currently I'm LOVING zebra printed decor. Like seriously loving. Don't worry, I'm not going to go crazy & put it everywhere, but I am carefully considering where I'd like to add it into my home for a serious punch of sass!

Here are some affordable options available to the masses:

West Elm

Pottery Barn

Pottery Barn

And here are several high-end options from Lee Industries, an earth-friendly upholstery company.

(This last one has to be my fave.. *sigh*)

A few daring & delicious options, courtesy of Tonic Home:

A pretty room by Erin Valencich via HGTV (pretty sure she used the same rug from Tonic Home, shown above):

And finally, Monique Lhuilier's home (simply breathtaking!):

Doesn't she just have the perfect amount of Zebra print?? Little punches here and there.. not enough to be loud, but just enough to have impact. I love it.

So, what do the rest of you think? Love it? Hate it? (If you hate it, please don't burst my pretty zebra filled bubble, k?? thanks.)

I LOVE a touch of zebra print in a room. Black is my least favorite. I like the chocolate zebra print and the bright fun colors from Tonic Home. Hope you're having a great weekend!

although this isn't really my personal style, I can totally see why some people love it. :) The zebra accents really make some of these rooms... gorgeous!

I loved zebra before zebra was cool. Seriously, in high school I loved zebra print stuff. I went to a residential high school and in my dorm room I had a zebra rug, towels etc. At home, I had an African print bedding set, wall paper border and zebra rug. I had zebra lamps, statues, lunch pails, hats, picture frames, pillows, blankets ... you name it, I had it. To my grade 11 formal, I actually wore a sassy black skirt with a zebra print top (it was actually quite cute - not TOO tacky).

I still have all my zebra stuff stowed away in a box hoping that someday I will be able to incorporate it again. I also have an amazing picture of myself dressing entirely in zebra print laying on the rug. I should scan it sometime :D

There is a zebra print chair that I REALLY want, but don't want to pay as much as they want for it! I'm hoping to get lucky at a garage sale one day. Zebra is just awesome!

I left you a little shout out on my blog!

I like just a touch - the chocolate zebra striped pillows are so pretty!
