Peak of Chic, HB & Zebra

Have you seen the June 2008 issue of House Beautiful yet? If not, run out right this minute and buy one... It's okay, I'll just have a drink and wait until you get back.
Good, you're back. Now, please turn to page 42. Got it? Good. Now please cast your eyes to the upper right corner and read the by-line. It's JENNIFER DWYER! Yes, blogland's own Peak of Chic! And she's got a great article about using everyone's favourite zebra print!
Jennifer and her editors have picked out a fun selection of items, including some dinnerware by Ballard Designs that would be perfect for al fresco dining this summer,
a yellow safari dhurrie rug from Carleton Varney for Elson & Company, which would look great in my living room, and desk accessories from the MacBeth Collection and Superdeluxe. The favourite design accessory is still "I Married Adventure" with its famous zebra-print cover, but it wasn't mentioned.

Way to go, Jennifer! I will look forward to reading your wonderful words both on-line and in print!

  7. What is it about zebra prints that makes them so appealing? They never go out of style and look great in every sort of room.

    And why zebra? Why not tiger or giraffe? For some reason, they're not quite the same are they?

    Any thoughts?

  8. Jennifer, I have a skirt that is brown and tan "zebra" stripes and a friend calls it my tiger skirt! The person who wrote the I Married Adventure book also wrote a second book, the cover of which as a giraffe print!

    Such great taste! I think zebra prints are chosen over that of tiger and giraffe prints is because of the certain class attached to it. It just looks so chic.

  14. you know i read that house beautiful, and i didn't notice peak's byline (maybe because it's her real name not her blog alias!). it was a fun article and i agree with you- that yellow varney rug would look great in MY living room too!

  17. Your lifestyle or taste determines what the focal point of your living area is. If you have a fireplace, you can rearrange your furniture around it. Or if you have a piano, and this is the focal point of your living area, your furniture could be set around it. When rearranging your furniture, also consider traffic in your Living Room Decoration area. It is always good to arrange furniture in off-square angles. This makes the room warmer and more casual. http://living-room-decoration.blogspot.com
