zebra 2.0

I’ve never been much into zebra rugs, and even if I were, they been quite overdone at this point.  But that zebra wallpaper from my post on Monday has been haunting me.   It’s such a graphic, captivating pattern.  I’m finding I like it best in small doses.  Like upholstery.  As an ottoman or a chair it really becomes a standout element in a room without overwhelming the space.  These pics make me think of zebra in a whole new way.  Zebra 2.0?

TIP- don’t be afraid to mix zebra with other colors and patterns.  In fact I much prefer it mixed in that way instead of in a black and white room.  Stripes and trellis patterns are a good way to go.  Suzanis look great too!
found the third image on amber id and the first two,,, zoinks, no clue. 
  1. Love that last image. Found it on Pinterest but don’t see the source for it. If you know it, can you send it to me?! Thanks! 🙂

  2. I love zebra and can’t get enough of Rose Cummings Zebrinne print wallpaper, it is awesome but I really love the one you posted this week too…did you find out who it is from?

  3. I am looking at zebra today on my post! I’ve always liked it, and I still do because I think it’s such a fab blk/wht print, but I do want to be careful not to overuse it. Is it too much to have bits of it in 3 rooms?

    And I will never lose my longing for a genuine zebra skin rug! Or anything upholstered in zebra hide.

  4. You know I’m loving the zebra prints fabrics on softer colors. Have you seen it in the spa blue or taupe? Very pretty!

  5. I love a little zebra here and there as well. That last photo is my favorite. I’ve had the West Elm zebra print pillows for a while and have really enjoyed them.

  6. I think zebra on an ottoman is perfect. Especially with that colorful rug. But no zebra in my house… Men.

  7. I have to say first, I’m getting a good laugh out of the “zoinks!” comment…awesome. And I’m with you, I would definitely prefer an ottoman to a rug any ol’ day of the week…(c:

  8. I love the first two room! Of course, I’m a sucker for a fireplace of any kind… I like the modern zebra ottomans in contrast to the bright painting (that I wish was showing more) and the ‘naturalist’ mantle setup!

  11. Totally agree. I admit I was tempted by the zebra rug craze but I resisted…would much more prefer a little upholstered stool!

    Black and white patterns are always alright by me.

  13. Totally right on. Zebra seems to strong in a black and white room. Needs color to balance it.

  14. You know, I haven’t been into zebra either. But the first pair of ottomans are fantastic!

    The last image is my fave because the darkness of the zebra is balanced by such large windows and the neutral sofa. And I’m digging the zebra & candy cane rug combo.
