Is it just me, or are you noticing zebra rugs everywhere? It seems in the last week especially, zebra rugs have been popping up in rooms on blog posts and magazines frequently.
I think for the most part they are real hides and not fake and for some reason this just makes me a bit squeamish. I don’t think I could walk on one or worse yet, eat dinner with my feet resting on one. (I remember a basement of a house that I staged was filled with dead animals on the wall and a bear skin with the head intact on the floor. I screamed when I stepped on it and I’m sure the homeowners must have thought I was nuts!)
These rooms are all beautiful no doubt and the zebra rugs add a graphic punch. I always have admired Jenna Lyons’ living room (with the yellow sofa) but why is the zebra necessary? What am I missing? Do you think they really add to a room and make it current?
