Good Finds

One of my favorite ways to add a little personality to a room is through the addition of zebra. Zebra rugs, zebra ottomans, zebra pillows, zebra fabric. I love it all.

Here are some of my favorite zebra pieces:

26 x 26 Williams Sonoma Home Floor Pillow in chocolate and cream crewel. I love this pillow and it's price ($128) for the size. I have these on my family room sofa and they boys haven't managed to destroy them.

The Oly "Oliver" Ottoman. This piece adds the perfect amount of drama to any room. I own it as well and it's functioned as a living room coffee table and a bench at the end of my bed. It's so versatile and has so much style. Maybe that's why you see it in every design magazine over and over again. It's on sale now at Jayson Home & Garden.

The Oly "Hilary" Bench. I love this piece for an accent in the living room. Maybe two in front of the fireplace? They bring just the right amount of splash and sophistication to any room. It also comes in a long bench version that would be great at the end of a bed or in an entry.

The West Elm Zebra rug. The scale of the print and price make this rug a great value. It also comes in a runner which would be a fabulous way to add some life to your hallway during the dreary winter months. Plus it's a lot easier to clean than the summer sisal/seagrass version.

I love Lewis & Sheron Textile Co. in Atlanta ( I can always find an amazing solid or novelty fabric for a reasonable price and their customer service is great.

I love this one and apparently everyone else does too as it's on back order. Bengal in sand for 15.00 a yard!

Bengal in black. Also on back order. Hopefully it will come in soon.

Zebra Ikat in Flax. Also 15.00 and on back order. No worries, though, they always seem to stock it. Just keep checking back.

If you have kids and want to create a fun bedroom, why not go for some pink or blue zebra. It would make a great chair or upholstered headboard. Just limit it to one major piece and you won't feel like you stepped into one of Hugh Hefner's "girls" rooms.

Outback Zebra (pink) 30.00 a yard.

Outback Zebra (blue) 30.00 a yard.

I would love to try this in my oldest son's room but I don't think he'd let mommy get away with this one now that he's eight and obsessed with football. I did, however, put two zebra storage ottomans at the foot of his black bed.

Everyone, including eight year olds, needs a little zebra.

I am a sucker for zebra print and have been forever. I have the same pillows and the Oly Hillary bench, actually a pair that have lived as a bench, coffee table and paired ottomans in my husband's study. This is my first visit to your blog, but it won't be my last! Love your style and am adding you to my blogroll right now!
