After dinner, the homeowners and their guests can retreat into this transitional den for drinks. A large wooden fireplace anchors the space and keeps it cozy year-round, while two armchairs and a large loveseat encourage everyone to sit back and relax. Since the space is so neutral, zebra-print pillows and a matching bench break the norm and offer a hint of visual interest.
Light, light and more light! The designer's talent shows through here in ability to make a space that's both formal and relaxed — with aid from those amazing floor-to-ceiling windows. Soothing tones of blue and cream and a flowering branch placed just so echo the great outdoors. A flokati pillow and a zebra print pillow add some modern funk, and simple accessories bring personality without clutter.
This open concept room has a beautiful flow between kitchen, living room and dining room. Bright white walls (including painted brick) and ceilings keep the space feeling bright, while walnut floors provide a grounding warmth. In the living space, a zebra-print chair and neutral Flokati rug jazz up the clean and simple lines of the room. The fireplace serves as a focal point for the space.
The white walls are extended from the common areas into the bedrooms and private spaces. To add pops of color, though, this bed is clad in pink and navy geometric bed linens. At the foot of the bed, a distressed, zebra print bench provides extra seating and a little bit of fun, while a sliding door separates this bedroom from the rest of the house.
Polished with tons of character and fun, this sitting room offers a unique style. Red walls with mirror accents set the stage for this creative space. The color story is spread to the floor by red and black chairs that accompany a zebra print rug. Large white vases flank a versatile dresser that provides storage and charm, making this room perfect for just about anything.
A round pedestal table holding an Asian tree is used as a living room divider and is flanked by a large beige sofa and a contemporary seating area with modern turquoise blue arm chairs. Arched window shades cover the large windows above three sets of French doors. The contemporary seating area features a zebra print rug and glass coffee table while both sections are accented with red throw pillows.
The secret to a successful modern apartment is plenty of storage. The built-in cabinets stretch from the dining room to the living room to maximize storage and enhance both spaces. The recessed section on the living room side enlarges the space at seating level while creating end tables and a serving counter. Yellow and pale teal accent the seating area, and a zebra-print rug provides a statement piece.
This green bedroom has a lively design perfect for a little rockstar. The vibrant green wall color is highlighted with black stripes and the zebra print comforter make this an eye-catching space. A desk at the foot of the bed provides a workspace and added storage and a chair in the corner is perfect for relaxing. A storage unit of cubbies next to the bed adds space for light and more storage containers.
Black and gold is a key part of the English Regency-style aesthetic. This elegant master bathroom by designer Patricia McLean has sleek surfaces, including the black porcelain sink, tile and marble baseboards. Black customized full-panel shutters and a Regency-style bookcase with a black wax finish add polish. The look is reinforced by a stenciled zebra rug and taffeta shower curtain.
Talk about a customized closet! This space was designed by Ehrlich Architects for an African art dealer/big game couple, reflecting their trademark styles of dress, which they refer to as “the hunter and the hunted.” He only wears camouflage, while she is devoted to animal prints. The zebra print rug unites them both, as does the spectacular African sculpture in the center. It’s interesting to note the differences in storage space requirements: He needs more shelves for casual folded clothes and duffel bags, whereas she has more hanging space for professional wear suited to her work in the art world.
The design goal in the family room was to maximize seating using stylish and comfortable pieces, so designers set up the main seating area with a custom, gray velvet sofa, a pair of velvet, pin-stripe wingback chairs and a par of wood framed swivel chairs. For a punch of pattern, they layered a zebra print cowhide rug under a brass and glass cocktail table, while a rectangular Swarovski crystal chandelier brings glam into the space without blocking the view of the city below. Finally, an element of art was added to the large TV wall with metallic gold and silver discs that perfectly finish off the design of the room.
This imaginative nursery is thoroughly cute without being a bit cutesy. A neutral palette of soft browns, black, gold and white keeps the bold prints in check while allowing their fun personality to shine.
The nursery's mood is at once warm, inviting and playful, with animal friends peeking out from the walls and storage bins and graphic prints energizing the serene color scheme. It's a space to love for years to come.
