Bang for Your Buck!

I used to think that zebra was tacky. As I explore more design concepts I've realized that there is definitely a place for zebra print. I especially love the bold statement it makes as a rug. I don't know if I could ever have it in my living room but I would use it in an office. I also have seen it used in a nursery and surprisingly, I loved it.

I've been doing some research and have found an awesome 5'x 7' zebra rug for only $68 at Urban Outfitters. I would start with this to see if I could live with such a bold print. If I was really ready to commit I would go for the one carried by West Elm. This rug is more of an investment, priced at $279.00 for a 5'x 8'.

Talk about bang for your buck! Check our this Alisha Ottomen Bench from Walmart priced at: $79.88! I wish I had room for this piece in my apartment!

I've decided to slowly ease this look into my life starting with a zebra print sleep mask. Yes, I use sleep masks...come on, they're awesome!

I love Zebra. My mom has a zebra rug that is in our living room right now and I love the look it gives the room.

I love that zebra rug from Urban Outfitters, I bought it in its last incarnation a couple years ago! Check out my zebra post from December! http://lacqueredlife.blogspot.com/2009/12/cheap-and-chic-of-week.html

Love that Walmart ottoman. Personally, I have been into zebra for ages. When I inherited my in-laws antique, Chippendale ball-and-claw dining chairs about 15 years ago, my mother said they needed reupholstering in stripes. Yes, indeed! Zebra stripes. It's the only way I could possibly live with those icky chairs that my husband refuses to part with.
Love your blog!
