On My Way To....

A Much Needed Break From My Training Class
I saw this set up and thought to myself, oh PLEASE ...
A little nap would be just what the doctor ordered, my eyes are burning, and it is hard to keep the furniture ' reps' straight at this point.
But 2 collections from Lexington make it all worth while, Barclay, and Kingstown.
They both have zebra accents pieces, along with upholstered items. All of which, I adore.
Is the zebra pattern not one of our favorite accents? Yes, it is!

'Zebra' has been long been associated with sophistication, and exotic travel.
I know I have zebra print in my home, I know Joni from Cote de Texas has it too!
Who else of you have something 'zebra' in your home?
Do you go for zebra ?

If you want to know more about any pieces in this post let me know.
I will get back to you.

  1. Renee - I zebra! I read bloggers tell the tale of banning zebra from their interiors. Zebra'ed out they say. Well I say, "never". I believe everything great in moderation.

    Now nap time for you! Hope your Wed. & training will be good?

  2. I don't have Zebra in my home but I do like it....I have a cowhide rug in my family room though. Hang in there....only two more days!

  3. We have a zebra suitcase bought in a school auction. It's in our "jungle" office on our leopard rug. Where the suitcase came from, we'll never know.

  4. No zebra... I guess the equivalent for an everything coastal enthusiast like me is coral patterns (but don't have that either). Hope everything is going as smoothly..., take care.

  5. I do have a copy of Osa Johnson's book, I Married Adventure. It has a wonderful zebra cover. Does that count??

  6. I've got a Zebra on the livingroom floor.....on top of stained concrete. Odd combo, yes?

    Love all of your images...that sideboard is quite ducky!

  7. I am a leopard girl myself. While I love the pure graphics of zebra, leopard soothes my animal side better.

  8. Zebra in the entry hall, ottoman & pillows!
    Yes, I love the animals, but I am hopeful that sources are getting their skins from regulated hunting.
    I do love the zebra look!

  9. Are you spying on me? I've been looking for something zebra this summer, but a lot of it looks cheap. Haven't found the perfect thing...yet.

    Love the pic of you and CV. Gorgeous!!

  10. No matter how hard I try , I just can't get into the animal print thing...sorry would be a boring world if we all liked the same things , wouldn't it ?I don't even like wearing it...pehaps I was a zebra in a previous life !!!!....Hope you are feeling lots better Renee...take some time out in the first picture.!! Lots of love XXXX

  11. La Maison Fou

    i would NEVER use real ZEBRA silly !

    have you forgotten ?...we are BOTH horse woman.

    xx thank you for your comments. it is getting me through.

  12. willow,

  13. My sistah Renee....
    I hope you have been able to BREATHE a little bit. I have no zebra...does a leopard count?
    Love ya...

  14. No zebra here, but MOTH's always coveted Ardvark!! You are sounding good girl, have you taken over the class from the Trainers yet!
    Millie ^_^

  15. Oh la la! loving the zebra stools and the zebra armchair!! Yes..I do zebra too! I have a zebra floor cushion... came from World is in rich browns... everyone loves it!

  16. Zebras are such beautiful animals. They say that each animal has unique stripes.

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
