Zebras and Palm Beach Chic

Do you love zebras? They are so Palm Beach Chic. I scored this beautiful finished needlepoint on Etsy yesterday that I will have made into a pillow. Think needlepoint is too old school? Not me. I love it. Designers like Jonathan Adler use lots of needlepoint but in a more modern way. I'm thinking about a great black and yellow trim on this to edge it up a bit.

Check out my Pinterest board on Zebras here. And go pop over and see my inspiration board today on The Glam Pad - my first post in a series on how I would makeover the Chinese Village House in Coral Gables, Florida. Click here to see my vision for the entryway and the main hall - there are zebras galore! Next up in the series will be the dining room.


  1. I love palm trees and zebras, off to check out The Glam Pad.

  2. Not only do I love zebras, I love needlepoint. Timeless.
    Happy Monday.

  3. That's very cute and has a bit of a modern look to it. Nice design. Good score.

    I love needlepoint pillows and still have all the ones from years ago that I love just as much as the day I bought them or they were given to me. I think needlepoint is timeless, and if you pick right, then it is easy to live with despite the trends which always have a way of cycling back around.

  4. Sister Parish always said, "If you find a piece of needlepoint, buy it!"

    Needlepoint IS timeless and adds subtle texture, pattern, and color to a room.

    Why are zebras Palm Beach Chic? That's a new idea for me.

  5. Kim - Zebras are quintessentially Lilly Pulitzer and the Palm Beach look.

  6. Adorable!!! Love the needlepoint ~ Score!!!

  7. Great post! Yes zebra is a key ingredient in the whimsical, colorful, tropical and preppy mix that is Palm Beach style. And that needlepoint is fabulous!!
