Over the holiday, I walked through an architectural salvage warehouse. A couple was buying Heywood Wakefield twin headboards for the guest room. The plans were to adorn them with Zebra Bed Sets, though the male of the party was objecting due to the historical era they were looking to recreate. Did you know that zebra prints were not out of the question in the 50s?  Granted, I would probably put it in a luxe master suit rather than a twin bed guestroom. So, she gets a point for historical accuracy and he gets a point for objecting to the setting….that is, if you are going for historical accuracy.
