The Good Leopard

Any sane person would agree that wall-to-wall leopard-print carpeting would be too bold for one room to handle, unless that room was the blackjack lounge at the Mirage Casino in Vegas. At least, that’s what I used to think, until I saw this makeover from Jennifer at Dimples And Tangles.

The carpet looked pretty rad even before, but now, with that deep color on the ceiling and the natural wood accents highlighted throughout the room, it looks so sophisticated and cool.  Tons of great details in this space. Check out Jennifer’s blog to see more, and get some expert tips on styling bookcases.  Her paperback storage idea is my favorite!

  1. this is simply heavenly! I never would have believed this could work!

  2. wow! i didn’t expect the leopard carpet to still be there…

  3. That is quite a change!!! Love it!!

  4. I like the rest of the room…but oh my that carpet just has too many spots!!

  5. That is an incredible ‘save’! Now NOT kitchy! Now elegantly CLASSY!

  6. So pretty!!

  7. Thank you Lindsey! We put that leopard carpet in right after we bought the house and I haven’t been sorry for a second! Glad you liked the room.

  8. Jennifer. I hope you do this for a living. I’m going to hop on over to your blog and find out. Then I’m gonna get me a similar rug. Been looking for years for something with pattern that i like. It’s like controlling the spots that will happen when one has children. It’s camo for carpet stains. Brilliant!

  9. Amazing! I was thinking “Leopard carpet??? You have got to be kidding!” Well, the joke is on me, it is fabulous. There is nothing about the room I don’t like, and it just wouldn’t have the same vibe at all without that carpet. Who would ‘a thunk it??

  10. WOW! That is super COOL!

  11. WOW! That is super COOL!

  12. LOVE Jennifer’s style ~ she always has something amazing in the works!

  13. Love that room and the rest of Jennifer’s house is just as classy!
