I’m not the biggest fan of the animal print, but I must admit that these zebra print patterns achieve a certain pop. Jonathan Adler lurves zebra – three of these rooms are his designs. Two are boutique hotels designed by Kelly Wearstler. Mostly the poor guy’s skin is found on the floor, but it occasionally makes an appearance on upholstery. I like the zebra paired with pink, even if it’s reminiscent of the Good & Plenty. (Are those still around?) My favorite is the gray drapery next to the desk with the Chinese Chippendale chair – so subtle. Ashley Whittaker’s blue zebra print room is anything but subtle, and made quite the splash in Domino. It’s Rose Cummings’ Zebrine, the red version of which I actually featured in “Cover Ups,” the first piece I ever did for the Globe magazine.
