Last week I featured my flea market finds and my favorite has to be the Brazilian Cowhide rugs in Cheetah print. I ended up purchasing two to go under my dining table. I love the glamorous and sophisticated aspect they add to the space. If you ever get a chance to attend the Nashville Flea Market, The Wild Goose, owned by Sis and Mason, are consistent monthly vendors. They have gorgeous hides in an array of colors and patterns including the highly sought after metallics and prints (leopard, cheetah and ostrich). They also have fabulous handbags that I'm currently coveting.
That is Sis (see the hobo handbags hanging in the background)
So to get on with today's topic, Leopard vs Cheetah......this became a topic because I kept calling my rug Leopard which in fact the pattern is Cheetah. After some research, I've found this is a common mistake and I'm not a complete idiot. Here is your easy lesson for the day, Cheetahs have simple black spots, while Leopards have a more complex pattern. For me and my space, I chose the Cheetah because I'm just more of a black and white girl. Which do you prefer?
