Zebras and Arrows

An unlikely combination, perhaps (unless you're hunting some serious game. In which case, I don't know why you're reading this). But when this print kept popping up every now and then on various blogs and on Pinterest it continually caught my eye so of course I had to investigate. Here's where it all began:

This awesome bar area, decked out in a classic black, white, and coral theme, all with a twist- 
the zebras and arrows are such an unexpected and fun element.

Upon further digging, I discovered that this fabric is made by ScalamandrĂ© and is called (what else) Zebras. "ScalamandrĂ©, an immigrant from Italy, founded the ScalamandrĂ© firm in New York. Today it is renowned for its fine, historically inspired silks, wools, linens and cottons, wallcoverings and elaborate trims. For more than 75 years the company has supplied luxurious work to interior designers and important public institutions such as the White House, Mount Vernon and Colonial Williamsburg." via

Impressive, no? And with that comes the pricetag- $111.99 a roll. Ouch.

I have to say it is beautiful though and makes such a statement in a room (and apparently Kate Spade thinks so too). Here are a few more of my favorites:

Anyone else on the Zebra bandwagon with me? Or maybe you think it's a little over-the-top? I'm thinking it would be super gorgeous in a dressing room, if one were to have such a room... A girl can dream.
