A Little Leopard Here and There

I love a little leopard here and there -- on pillows or lampshades, it can be just the right touch. Here are a few photos of the leopard elements I have used in decorating our home.

One of two Bergere chairs in our Asti home. I splurged on the Ralph Lauren linen fabric.

The lampshades and chair are in our Master Bedroom and Bathroom at home in the city. The fabric is velvet.

Sconce in the living room. I love these shades. They are paper and I think they were all of $10 from Lamps Plus! (The red walls will be painted a more neutral "burlap" shade after Christmas.)

The stairway runner. Another splurge. The stairs make three turns which proved very difficult to install. It was worth it though. This carpet wears like iron!

I found these Ralph Lauren placemats at Marshalls and couldn't resist incorporating a little leopard (and burlap!) in the Christmas tablescape.

Perhaps I should use this photo for the next Tablescape Thursday! Afterall, Christmas is now just around the corner......


  1. Love those plates! And your placemat look great.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. I love all your leopard touches. I love wearing splashes of it, makes me feel more bold. lol.. You've got some beauties.. hugs ~lynne~

  3. Just like you, I have a little touch of leopard in our master bath, family room and powder room. I like all your little touches and I love your Christmas tablescape especially the napkin rings. I have similar placemats that I got from TJ Maxx but my print might be zebra...Christine

  4. I love the look of a touch of leopard! I am loving your Bergere frenchy!! I scrolled down and saw your plates on the wall...wonderful! I had missed the mismatched silverplate in the PB catalog somehow. A lady does that at an antique shop nearby for $23 per 5 piece placesetting...a steal! Happy week!...Debbie

  5. Hello! I just found your blog and so happy I did. I can see we have similar decorating tastes. I also loved leopard and use it often. I also just purchased 4 of those Christmas tree dishes at TJM. I wished they had more. :( I love the unconventional way you have used other colors and textures in with this traditional plate. hummm.. ideas!! I'll be back. I hope you'll come see me too.

  6. Beautifully - I'm especially fond of the carpet, though that Ralph Lauren linen is spectacular. Lovely home - I'm off to see more! TY for following Color Outside the Lines! ;)

  7. Delores, I suspect the XMas TEA up here in Aspen will get you in the Sams mood no end. jsut bring yourself, a guest if you like, and hobnob with othe other bloggers. You chance to make an impression and a chance to meet new bloggers too. I will take care of the tea, biscuits, plum pudding and whatnot. Yummm. :)

  8. Where is the leopard runner from? Love it!
