Animal Attraction: Mecox Gardens Opens in Highland Village

“Our primary emphasis is a dedication to achieving an overall balance between the interior and outdoor living environment,” reads the copy on the home page of the Mecox Gardens website.

Paloma Contreras, who runs Houston’s La Dolce Vita blog, took these photos on a recent visit. Mecox Gardens features “vintage and reedition” home and garden furnishings.

So here’s a reader challenge:


Only two of the interior photos shown here don’t contain anything with a zebra print. Can you find them?

Need to see closeups? Larger versions of these pix, and a more extensive tour of the new store, are at La Dolce Vita.
