zebras galavanting around my house.

i've loved scalamandré's zebra wallpaper for a long time. i like to think it was when i first saw an image of gino's italian restaurant, for which the wallpaper was originally created, but it was probably more like when i watched the royal tenenbaums for the tenth time. only recently did i obtain a sample to drool on in person (danke robyn). it makes me SO HAPPY to think of the day when i can have my very own zebra-filled powder bathroom; i'm just not sure how i'll choose a color. the newly introduced black colorway is at the top of my list, but the safari brown and serengeti greenare also super fly.

{images: 1. gino's, 2. margot tenenbaum (ps-i love you wes anderson and you are welcome back to my twitter feed at any time, no questions asked), 3. kate spade's bathroom, 4. via hampton hostess, 5. Massucco Warner Miller via little green notebook, 6. miles redd by elle decor, 7. my favorite colorway, 8. via habitually chic.}

This would make no sense whatsoever in my house. But I love it!

I love these guys -- so scared witless are they by a shower of arrows they don't know whether they're coming or going.
They're so perfectly stripe on in a powder room ;)
Cheers, Alcira

raina-i know, right? i think the reason they would go so well in my casa is due to the common thread i'm working: nothing makes sense over here. so why not toss a few zebras into my mix?

AMA-those arrows are possibly my favorite part. well, those, and the zebras. but i could use a whole lot more arrow motif in my life.

tabitha-thanks for stopping by! did you mean THIS BLOUSE? i am a huge fan of peter pan collars! this top plus the schumacher paper would certainly evoke that scene in garden state where zach braff disappears into the wall :) http://www.debenhams.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/prod_10001_10001_037010410428_-1?CMP=AFC-POLYVORE&CMP=AFC-AWIN
