The Duchess Suggests . . .

A hallmark of many homes, both traditional and modern in their styling, is timeless leopard print.  Whether the pattern of a carpet or the lush upholstery on a chair, leopard adds panache to any setting. 

But what if you are looking for a little more feline whimsy?  The perfect touch, and one the Duchess fell head over hells for, is the Piero Fornasetti leopard ottoman.  Peter Dunham had one at Hollywood at Home for a time that the Duchess lusted after, but alas, her hesitation cost her the ability to call this ottoman her own because it has now been sold.  Keep your eyes open for these, and keep the Duchess posted!

If a Fornasetti ottoman is beyond your reach, not to worry.  These pillows by Dana Gibson are a fabulous substitute, and come in a variety of background colors (including red!).  The Duchess may have to stock up on a few herself.
