Zany for Zebra

Happy Wednesday chickies!

I am sad to report that I wasn't able to make it to Northern Virginia this past weekend.  By the time I left school at 2:30, the snow had already begun to accumulate, roads were slick, and I even saw a car in the ditch.  I didn't think it was worth the risk to drive on 95 (I hate 95 even in good weather), so AMF and I have rescheduled for a weekend in February.

I was really bummed not to get to go, but at the same time, I was really worn out and a laid-back weekend at home did me a lot of good!

Today, I'd like to share one of my passions with you:  ZEBRA.

I have ALWAYS loved zebra print.  In fact, I remember begging my parents for a hideous zebra coat when I was in third grade.  Picture cheap zebra fur complete with a hood and fake satin liner.  It was bad.  My parents resisted, but finally gave in.  I thought I was HAWT!  Looking back, I realize what a trashy fashion choice it was at a young age.

Nowadays I'd like to think my taste in zebra has matured a bit.  I especially enjoy it in home decor.  I am amazed at how a pop of zebra can transform an ordinary, traditional room to one with pizzazz!

So without further adieu, get a little wild and enjoy some of my favorite zebra rooms.  All can be found and sourced on my Pinterest Home Inspiration board!

This is currently the cover for my Home Inspiration Board and I could not be more smitten with this little bar!  Funky meets traditional in a big way here and I find it to be absolutely perfect!

My favorite touch of zebra in a room is most definitely through a zebra skin rug.
This basic foyer goes from boring to bold with the addition of the rug.

Though traditional black&white zebra is my favorite, I'm not picky!
I LOVE this blue wallpaper as a way to make laundry more bearable.

A combination of my bamboo obsession and zebra obsession...can it be mine?

This chair too!  Love the feminine skirt!
Looks like blue zebra might be my second favorite...

Zebra gives this romantic, frilly room a bit of edge!

What a warm, inviting office!

Though not my personal style, I love this black and white room with pops of zebra, pink, and blue!

And for the finale!
How awesome is this wall?
I love the mix of prints, color, and textures!

So far, I've only added a little bit of zebra around the apartment.  I received this adorable Nico and Lala stationery for Christmas and framed one of the cards for the gallery wall:

Isn't the zebra, mint, and red a great combination?

I wasn't thrilled with what was in that frame before and think the zebra is the perfect change!

I also ordered this wrapping paper and am saving it for a project-- I'm thinking of making it wall art or using it to decoupage something down the road...

Are you a fan of zebra?

Have you used it in your home?

What are your favorite ways to add pizzazz to a room?

Have a great day!
