Mom and I have been dying to do one of our bathrooms or laundry rooms in the Scalamandre zebra wallcoverings, so I suppose that will have to be my favorite (in the black colorway!)

I own a short length of their Resist Print in Blue tones from the ARCADIA COLLECTION......love!.....and love the zebras too....smiles!

Teresa said...

Everyone deserves a Happy-inducing Zebra RED umbrella on a rainy day. More and more I love that tendency of being bold with things that almost went unnoticed before. Sometimes umbrellas on the street make me smile so much I go along forgetting is raining LOL.
Hope all is better with you, K.
Feel my warm hug!

Glamour Drops said...

I've just spent far too long perusing their site finding some glorious designs - especially the exclusive fabrics. The Antoine is absolutely what I am looking for, for a project I am working on. Now, how to get it to Australia I wonder?

These umbrellas are really too cute - would stop traffic I reckon! Hope you have a gorgeous weekend Karena. xx

Lots of Love to you,

Mise said...

I'm captivated by their 'Birds of a Feather' design, and indeed by the compelling opulence of the whole range of fabrics. The zebra umbrella, I am convinced, would mark me out at the school gate as an impossibly sophisticated member of the intelligentsia. A lovely giveaway indeed!

The French Hutch said...

Fabulous giveaway. The zebra fabric is beautiful for the color and pattern.. The umbrella is gorgeous! Wishing you the best..

The French Huch


This is actually my favorite Scalamandre pattern so of course, I'd love the umbrella. :) Another fab giveaway, Karena! xo

Hannah Bergman said...

I love the Masai Red Zebra print... It has become it's own icon of sorts. Fingers crossed that Ill be welcoming it into my home in the form of an umbrella very soon!

Kim@Chattafabulous said...

You know I think that zebra print is tough to be. I adore it in every colorway offered! Thanks for the awesome giveaway and thanks for inviting me to join!


PS - for some reason, I don't think I was following - I'm fixing that now!

linds said...

The zebra wallpaper is so iconic - love the safari brown colorway, as well as the red. May I follow you via email? Hope so!

Susan Audrey said...

Their "Pantin" pillows are my kind of style. I love the colorful textures featured in the fabric. Just gorgeous!

Elizabeth Eiffel said...

Thank you for dropping by at Eillel Tells. As you may have noticed I've not been very active on my blog since returning from France.......I've just felt too flat and tired after one front on car accident, 2 separate trips to hospital and trying to deal with the mess and bad workmanship which was done by A Piece of Burgundy.

On to better things......I love the whimsical Scalamandre design and colour. Red is the predominant colour in our formal sitting room. Bon weekend ey=t bisous

Elizabeth Eiffel said...
