Is Tiger the New Zebra?

Wednesday, November 17, 2010

I've been noticing a trend in animal prints lately in my favorite shelter magazines and it looks like tiger print is gaining popularity - maybe replacing zebra as the go-to animal print?

Meee-ow!  I'll take two pillows in velvet, please!

Leopard, zebra or tiger for you?

I do like animal print rugs. I am still favoring the zebra one.

I'm going with zebra. Something about the tiger says "exotic dancer" to me. LOL!

Done well, I like them all - probably zebra the most. Karen's comment about the exotic dancer made me laugh.

I love leopard or tiger. I am not a black and white girl so I have never loved zebra.

Love every single image here. I love tiger, and it blends perfectly with zebra and leopard! Of course I think the Redd rooms are total perfection.
Have a great day!

I love them all! Each has their place. These examples are lovely btw.

I don't dig it as much I'm sticking with Zebra.

Sarah @ Modern Country Style said...

Oooh, no! I can't imagine tiger at all. But no doubt when the fashion's filtered down a bit, tiger will be everywhere and I'll love it!

Feel free to remind me about this comment then!!

You featured two of my favorite shots - Michael Smith's living room and the Miles Redd (of course). Have always loved the Scalamandre tiger silk - such a fabulous classic - goes anywhere, with anything!

beautiful!! Love animal prints, just haven't gotten the guts to use them :)

It's definitely a statement piece. I'm not big on animal print in general, though I do have a soft spot for cow hide rugs.

Oh and recently I've been seeing pony spots. I think I like the black and white ones better because they are easier to mix with other items....

i agree with naomi, i can't get down w animal prints. but cowhide, i like. good trend alert though!

Great observation! Honestly I have a love/hate relationship with leopard and tiger since I used to be obsessed with it when I was about 16. I wore leopard velvet bell bottoms and even had a leopard sofa in my room. See why I'm traumatized now? haha! Guess I'll warm up to it again though :)

oh, i'm loving it too. beautiful.

I love a little animal in every room....not too picky : )

Though tiger velvet pillows, zebra rug and cheetah throw might work. :)
