I've long preferred leopard as far as animal prints go. Maybe tiger. But zebra was farther down the list. No particular reason for it.

Yet all of a sudden I realized that I have and/or want a lot of different things that have zebras on them! I'm blaming Scalamandre. After all, my mousepad from them (a promotional item when I signed up for a trade account) was my first zebra item...


Then I bought this notepad a while back, from Rifle Paper Co.


And right before our wedding, I bought these notecards (but I love them so much I haven't sent any out! Anyone else weirdly hoard stationary?)


I even asked for these salt and pepper shakers for Christmas last year - but didn't get them (I might have to buy them, even after all this time).


I should have noticed the trend by this point, but it wasn't until I put this pillow (though in the lumbar shape) on my Christmas list, that I realized... I really like zebras.


(I described this Brunschwig fabric to Ryan by saying, "It's red, with kind of a floral... and there are zebras!" I really know how to make a sale, huh?).

But my big plan for the pillow is to put it on my leopard chair that is soon to be... so I haven't completely forsaken my first animal print love.

Have you seen trends emerge in your own home?
