In the past few weeks, I’ve saved both of these images to my inspiration files, and it was only today that I noticed the obvious connection…

The combination of a haute little leopard print with modern printed art in faded hues is right up my alley and (thankfully!) an easy one to recreate! Finding a small stool or chair to reupholster in a leopard or cheetah print is a fairly simple task, and finding basic graphic artwork or even stretching fabric onto a canvas will make this look come together…

See? Easy as pie.

    I love the prints in those photos!! Such a great way to show color & use the animal print as a neutral.

    I love your blog! We definitely have very similar tastes, especially in decor. The abstract art with leopard print is a wonderful combination, and I know I’ve seen the artwork you featured in the second photo. Do you know what issue of Elle Decor it was in? Or, do you happen to know who the artist is? Thank you so much, and keep inspiring!
