Even Addy, my chocolate lab, likes the cheetah carpet…

I’ve had lots of questions about the cheetah carpet my designerKen Blasingamechose for the bedrooms in my new home. Most of you seem to really like it and I can’t wait to show you the completed rooms. Hopefully we’ll be finished in time for Thanksgiving company!

In the meantime, I was looking for ideas about how other people use animal print carpet and rugs and I ran across some fun and pretty pictures I thought you might enjoy.

As soon as my bedrooms are finished, I’ll be posting pictures with information about my own cheetah carpet and other goodies like some wonderful linens I found at a local shop.

Until then, sweets dreams about animal prints…
