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?
