leopard in life

Have I ever mentioned how much I love leopard?  I adore seeing it unexpectedly pop up in a room…or outfit.  It adds a perfect touch of sass to just about any grouping.



There’s something about an animal print that relaxes a space yet sets it apart from looking just average or too matchy.


Green and leopard?  Gorgeous.



Had to throw this one in.  Oh Kate.


More green.  I could slurp up these benches in one breath.


I think my favorite way to see leopard is in a pop surrounded by a neutral palette.  You might remember seeing that look in our last home using my favorite leopard pillows over in this post and this one too.

This particular combination of leopard mixed with nailheads, neutral upholstery, and an eclectic picture grouping is brilliant.  When I grow up I want one of my rooms to look like this.


Leopard on a cool bench?  Yes.


And no words can describe the coolness of this whole situation.


Speaking of fashion, I wouldn’t argue one single bit if these puppies arrived on my doorstep one day.

Meanwhile, I’m on a hunt for some vintage pieces I can cover in a delicious Ralph Lauren leopard linen print I found.  Maybe two little stools or an accent chair.  Here is one of our new chicks, Miette, using my leopard sample as her evening shawl. #highmaintenancechick

    The leopard heels would be great for a night on the town. Love them. Fun post.

    Seleta, I think any pattern that emulates well mother nature’s handiwork will always be classic and never go out of style. With that said I love leopard prints on just about everything.

    The leopard two piece and sun hat are gorgeous.
