Faux Zebra is Totally Fab

10 Feb

Animal prints have been very on-trend lately and a great way to incorporate this into your house is with a faux zebra rug! Forget buying a zebra hide in your local design store– let’s face it people, zebras sure aren’t from around here so buying a zebra rug means you just funded a poacher’s/safari hunter’s lifestyle in Africa and now they will continue to kill more momma zebras, leaving their poor baby zebras to be a lion’s next meal. Ok that may be a little much, but a faux zebra rug is awesome because you can even get it in colors that work with you room! Check out these great inspirational ideas and a few fun places to purchase them!
