Cheetah and Yellow | Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer

A few days ago, I was wearing cheetah print pants with funky yellow shoes. I was waiting for someone to come to the appointment.
As usual, when I get bored waiting, I take a photo of my shoes or what I am wearing, I am not much of a selfie person. I find my selfie feet don’t have that frozen look all faces have in selfies.

Later, I posted the picture on my Pinterest board So Chic, So Stylish and made a comment that, in my fantasy, I see an interior with that combination.
Good enough, I caught someone’s attention. The comment intrigued a person who asked me how I would see yellow and cheetah combined in a room.
We started to talk and pretty soon I had a solution for her.

Cheetah Yellow Dream Board

Cheetah Yellow Dream Board

(In this dream board, the lanterns and wood shell photos come from rajeesoodhome on Instagram)

In my dream board, I see a yellow love seat, and various rustic, wood type elements: bamboo floor lamp, a chiseled edge coffee table, wood accessories, a stack of colorful pillows and many different shapes of lanterns gathered in one same corner. The cheetah wall I think it’s impressive as an accent wall.
Animal prints require natural and organic material. After all, cheetahs live in the wild nature.

I researched on how to get the cheetah effect on the wall. It’s an easy DIY paint project. Jennifer at Etsy sells all kinds of decorative paint rollers. In this video, she explains so easily how to do it, mix paint with glaze and roll over the desired pattern.  https://www.youtube.com/artisticpaintingstudio

I shall be waiting for the photos of the interior I conceived for this new Pinterest client, I am so glad she found me. Technology is just great when it works. Ciao,
Valentina

    Not a face selfie person but that photo of your shoes looks really good. The shoes really stand out 🙂 I’ve been seeing the colour yellow everywhere and it seems to be the colour in season this winter right now in Autralia. So very timely to come across this post of yours. I’ve always thought yellow colour was hard to match with other colours. However looking at your photo, it seems to go well with orange and maybe even grey. So long as it’s not fluoro yellow, I think you can pull off wearing that colour well 😀

    I love the room, Valentina. That looks like my yellow love-seat! (Although mine has a slightly greenish undertone.) I have one yellow and it’s twin in aqua. Something you mentioned about plants inside stuck with me. Since I have a black thumb, rather than a green one, I’m keeping an eye out for a realistic, yet affordable, faux bush or small tree to go in the corner. Hugs on yellow wings!

      Teagan, there are many real interior plants that do not require any care, ficus is one of them, but it makes no flowers, only green leaves. One thing to do is put a string of lights in the pot or around the branches. At night becomes “fantabulous”. Thanks for the visit.
