Black & White Hype: Zebra Edition

Black & White Hype: Zebra Edition

Zebra print isn't exactly the first print I think of when I picture decorating and furnishing my new apartment in a few months — but maybe it should be. Animal prints haven't completely faded into the background; they've just been quiet for a few years. But oh, things have changed and they are most definitely back!

Black and white has always and will always be an extremely popular color combination in home interiors. It's easy to accessorize and even easier to combine with other colors. But sometimes color blocking isn't enough and patterns are craved — that's where zebra print comes in. It doesn't have to be actual zebra hide — faux is usually better looking anyway.

Upholster a chunky ottoman in zebra print to make a chic statement or lay down a zebra print rug in the living room to take it to the next level. If you're really bold — slap up some zebra wallpaper in the bedroom or bathroom! With that said, zebra print doesn't always have to be black and white. Maybe a blue zebra print could make some really killer curtains.

Would you decorate with zebra print?
