Animal Magic

I do love a bit of leopard.

My boudoir houses my love for everything animal-print:

I upholstered all the furniture myself with this great fabric, I think it goes well with my very individual decor!
Whilst it is not to everyone's taste, I absolutely love it, if done in the right way. I like signature flashes of animal-print in unusual places, like my curtain tie-backs:

I also own some animal-print footwear:

The zebra and leopard boots are from years ago (my wild side was raging!), I no longer wear them but cannot bear to part with them! I only ever wore them peeking out from underneath black trousers. The peep-toes are far more wearable.
Some may find animal prints tacky, and I have myself seen some awful versions, but it has somehow drawn me in and has become part of my signature style.
If my friends are stuck for a present for me they know they can do no wrong with a bit of leopard!
I think everyone should have a little animal in their life
