Do you have a slight fear of leopard print like I do? I've made no secret on this blog that I struggle to feel like myself when wearing this particular animal print. It's not that I don't like it- I love it! It's just that every time I put it on, I feel like I should be going to da' club. 

BUT a little leopard in the home is something that has really been catching my eye lately. Hey, if the princess of preppy Lilly Pulitzer can make it work on her wall, then so can I! The key to making leopard work without creating a full-on boudoir? Create unexpected contrasts like Nanette Lepore did by using leopard upholstery on an elegant lucite chair with an over-dyed rug. Check out a few fabulous finds and tell me if you can hear the call of the wild.

Some of us may never master working leopard into our wardrobe but tossing a leopard throw pillow on a chair or couch...we can handle that. Just look at my couch with the (photoshopped) lumbar pillow!

Om, yes, I think I can live with this little pop of animal print.


  1. I've been eyeing that leopard pillow for a long while! You should get it!

    Also, my MIL put subtle leopard carpet on her stairs going up to the second level; it is to DIE for.

    1. We should do a timeshare of that pillow! I bet Mrs. Holding's stairs look gorgeous...maybe if I had stairs...

  2. So, you got yourself a kitty cat too!!! Your couch looks stunning!!!! I'd love to use that wallpaper in our front hall bathroom. Your thoughts????

    Momma loves ya!!

    1. Haha! Well I might eventually...just pondering the thought for now. Your bathroom would look GREAT with that wallpaper! You know where else you could use it- the OTHER bathroom...the one with the working shower. ;)

  3. Thanks for the shout out on our "Call of the Wild" pillow. Love your blog!
