I would love to incorporate a rabbit here and there into my decor, but I need to be able to show my husband some items that aren't too childish. And prove to my mom that I can in fact use some bunnies in my home without looking twelve. My house is a little shabby chic with a modern edge, and I am not afraid of color."
Hi Stephanie! First things first - consensus among editors seems to be that to avoid the childish associations, we should avoid the word "bunnies". These are rabbits and they are sophisticated! With a little help from Marian the Contrarian, I've put together a handful of rabbit regalia that I think will fit the bill. You might also have some luck checking out vintage rabbit home decor on Etsy - I set that search up to exclude everything that includes the word "Easter" to avoid the pink and pastel stuff.

Mitchy here: I'd be happy to never put on another pair of pants. What this means for you is that I love all kinds of casual dress shopping. I also love making costumes, and retro-kitschy home decor. And though I'm one of many at Outblush, I'd like to think I am the Grand Poobah of cat ladies.
