I think you’ve all figured out by now (and by seeing my blog background) that I really like animal print…especially leopard…and enjoy using it sprinkled around my home. This seems to go back several years, as I can remember liking it for many years (even in clothes) and it has been in & out of vogue in fashion & decorating for a long time too. It seems to be a classic now and I’m glad! I just love how it goes so well with other fabrics (especially florals) & gives that nice bit of accent to a room. I wouldn’t want a lot of it, but it’s just that little touch that does the trick.
Above are pillows on my livingroom sofa. My mom made the needlepoint pillow for me after I got on a pillow making frenzy a few years ago & decided that I needed a lot of pillows. I collected some needlepoints thrifting & Ebaying & found some fabrics the same way & put together a lot of different pillows. I’ve kept the prettiest of them. The leopard pillow came from a yardsale & seems right at home with the florals & neutrals I have in the LR.
This throw came from Tuesday AM. They have some great sales sometimes & this one was a good one. I found 2 throws during this sale & they are both very pretty. I just loved the texture & pattern on this one & it’s draped over one of my leather chairs in the LR.
This guestbath has the most animal print of any room in the house. I went a little crazy in here & have accessories, towels & rugs in it.
Found this cute little clock at a yardsale for 50 cents. And doesn’t it go great in here? That vase I picked up years ago at Garden Ridge in Atlanta.
Yet another yardsale find, this little candlestick lamp was decoupaged with leopard paper & I already had the shade for it.
Right after we moved in here, I painted the white laminate cabinets a deep chocolate brown, called Turret Stairs (by Ralph Lauren). I love how it changed the whole look of this bathroom. I’ve had the rugs (2 of them) for a few years & got them at Kirklands.
Guestroom with some leopard touches on the pillows. I found this fabric at a yardsale (couple of yards) and it’s been great to use around the house. It has a wonderful texture to it.
Covered a yardsale lamp in the guestroom with it and I still have some left.
Wicker chair I’ve had for many years & spray painted black, it works well as a desk chair with another yardsale desk I found & painted. Now it’s in a corner of the den. I found this leopard cushion at a yardsale too.
