Dear Scalamandre

One of my favorite designs is Scalamandre's iconic Zebras. Its boldness and whimsy allow it to pair beautifully with Chinoiserie. These top two photos are fantasy versions that do not exist. (It does come in other colors besides red like black and brown but not colors I generally use!)

So "Dear Scalamandre: Please come out with Zebras in hot pink, light pink, lime green, orange, turquoise, and navy blue. This would make many of us very happy and would be a big seller for you. Sincerely, Chinoiserie Chic."
