Fashion Week Trends and Home Design..

Classic, Sophisticated, Sexy, Animal Prints...

The New York, Paris, & Milan fashion shows have all sadly ended. Every morning I was glued to the online version of the New York Times Style section looking at all the gallery slide shows from the fashion shows the day before. Did you see Alexander McQueens last show? Incredible!

There were many lovely clothes and trends to admire, but the trend I saw over and over again was feathers and animal prints.


During Spring market week, Oly Studio gave away faux cow-hide-covered picture frames as a thank you gift for visiting their studio. I made a note to self that a trend alert was ahead.

When attempting to use an animal print accessory or fabric in home design, the one thing I've learned is that a little goes a long way.

Once again following the runway trends, home design is embracing animal prints in all colors.



Animal prints add just the right touch of eclecticism to any room.



I love the classic lines of the furniture and accessories mixed with the leopard print dining chairs.




It can be used in just about any room in the house; 
contemporary or traditional design. it seems to go with all..




Did I mention that a little goes a long way?



Here a few items I found to accent any area of your home.



Love these Snakeskin embossed bar accessories!


Happy Fall everyone!

Hope you are enjoying it in your part of the world. And by the way, keep the emails coming. My favorites from last month were from a soldier in Iraq dreaming of when he gets home and will have a home of his own to decorate and one from Holland who loved my post about all things Morocco.

  1. I am not fond of animal prints, but those dining chairs look stunning with the leopard print. The chandelier also gives the room a more rustic atmosphere.
