Safari Overload

For anyone who knows me or has read my blog, I have made my love of animal print in a room well known.  I think almost any room could do with a boost of a LITTLE animal print, which as I've said many times before, I view as a neutral.  I was looking today and found some humdingers of animal print gone TOO WILD.  I don't know who in their right mind who do anything like this but thought you might find some of them amusing too...what is up with that bathroom up there??

In general, I believe you should leave babies and young children out of being subjected to anything with an animal print...just because you color something hot pink, green or blue, does not make it acceptable for a young child.  In fact, clearly after seeing these images, it could be permanently scarring.


Mixing animal prints is tricky at best.  Displaying this many (and ugly ones at that) is obnoxious and creepy.  I don't know about you but I certainly don't want to hang out in this room.

Leave those d*mn babies alone!

This one attempted to be tasteful but it is still too much. 

Ya'll might disagree with me on this one but I'm gonna go ahead and announce, however classy other design blogs and mags hailed this to be, it is too much.  The zebra print no longer takes the backseat as a neutral but instead is front and center and frankly makes me dizzy.

  1. Some of these rooms remind me of the sets they use in Photo Hunt.

  2. Great round-up of animal prints gone wild. The bathroom at the top of your post would give me headaches!

  3. It's nice, but it's not my cup of tea...

  4. All I can say is WOW!!! It hurts my eyes just looking at all of it!

  5. Yikes! My eyes have gone a bit funny!!
