Leopard Chair before and after, and inspiration shots for Jeweled Interiors Fall 2018 One Room Challenge

Note: Some products in this post are sponsored but the opinions are 100 percent my own.

I’m dying here!  These leopard chairs are KILLING me because they are so incredibly gorgeous!  Check out why I love them, how I did it, and the reason I’m nearly experiencing cardiac arrest here at Jeweled Interiors for the Fall 2018 ORC Week 3.

What is the ORC?

I want to start out with a huge thank you to Linda, from Calling it Home, for organizing this, the top-dog of all interior design blogging events…The ONE ROOM CHALLENGE👏👏👏! This event happens every fall and spring and is soooo addictive.

This is a 6 week event which includes 20 “Challenge Participants” and hundreds of other “Guest Participants” (like me).  So don’t forget to check out everyone elses’ progress too!

As an added bonus there are two great media sponsors for this event, Better Homes and Gardens and Home Love Network.  They will be picking their favorites to showcase and we will all be cheering each other on to the finish line.  It’s just hard to believe that we are already halfway done 😱😬…So much more to do!!!

Where my Leopard Chair Addiction Began

Here’s the deal.  Our family of six recently returned back to a home we have owned and previously lived in five years (and three addresses ago).  My design theory this time around is to surround myself with things that I loved the last time around and STILL love now.  Throw in there a few fun modern updates, the Jeweled Interiors twist, and kazaam!  A classic game plan I can stick with.

On that list of things that I have loved and continued to love are sexy leopard chairs.  Let me show you a couple of inspiration pics I found on Pinterest.

You will notice that the same leopard fabric was used in both of these inspo shots.  After some google searching I found this beautiful Braemore Jamil Natural Leopard Print Velvet fabric on the Fabricmill.com.

I’m really excited I did too.  You see, the Fabric Mill is one of my new online fabric store CRUSH.  Their prices and selection are great, the service and delivery are fast, and the samples are only $1.  That’s almost a dangerous combination for me.  I think I ordered at least 20 samples, if not more…Not because I really needed them.  Nope, I just wanted to see how they felt in real life…#obsessive. I vow to spend more time on the Fabric.mill once the ORC is finished.

Before Pics

In case you haven’t heard, one of my few talents is being able to look at something vintage, see the vision, and then make it fresh and chic.  Just sayin’ .  Now, these chairs are no exception.  I was thrilled to see this pair of club chairs and drove over an hour through traffic to nab them in a Target parking lot.

The scale was perfect and I really hoped that I would be able to knock out those arms.  It was a gamble I was willing to take.

What do you think?  Does this give you the FEVER for Fabric Mill Braemore leopard chairs too?

Cheeky End Table

To keep these chairs feeling fresh I paired them with a chic little end table from Homepop.  The scale and color are perfect and I love the angles and lines on this little number.  On top of that, the glass top adds a pretty glow around my accessories in the afternoon light.  I’d say it was a great choice!  Homepop for the WIN🥇!
