Wild bunch ...

I can't explain why women love leopard print, but we certainly do! Ladies from Tarzan's Jane to supermodels and starlets have given us decades of fabulous looks wearing the spotted imposters.

A classic leopard print coat is just as glamorous with formal attire as it is with denim jeans. Throw on a pair of 'Jackie O' shades and add a shimmering bag for an attention-grabbing look.

But, why leave the leopard at the door! Bring it inside to create a striking pose on upholstered pieces.

Faux fur stair runners and handsome carpets are gutsy and glam! I love how designers have incorporated a bit of 'wildlife' into stunning home decor.

I would certainly give a room the spot treatment, wouldn't you? But, just like everything bold, a little goes a long way.

One elegant chair or upholstered bench is all it takes to enliven a space.

One little, golden bamboo stool and complementary occasional pillow provide a home office with loads of personality. That just gave me an idea of transforming a blah desk chair in my office. I may be on to something here.

Love your pics! This animal print is my favorite--wish my spouse felt the same way, and then I could have it all over the house!
