So, lately, I've been doing lots of stuff to the furniture in my house. I am working on several projects. The problem with doing all of those projects is that creativity spurs on MORE projects. So, it got me to thinking about some home decor trends that I keep seeing and I am loving and want in my house and some trends I see now that I have no interest in putting in my home.
Right now, I need some color in my house. Particularly, I am intrigued by turquoise touches with dark glaze.
HATE: Antlers. I don't get this trend, at all.
LOVE: Gold accents in white rooms
HATE: Union Jack. I don't HATE it, I just don't like it in my house.
Although, this dresser is pretty cool.
LOVE: Chevron and stripes. I am trying to figure out how to do a garage sale dresser I got for Jordan's room like this, somehow...
HATE: Beachy decor. Once again, don't hate it, it's just not my style.
LOVE: Distressing and glaze. This is the coolest, easiest way to give your furniture a little sumpn sumpn.
You know, I used think that because something was trendy in home decor, I had to like it or try to put it in my house. But now, I realize home decor is no different than a fashion trend. Do I like certain styles in other people's homes? Sure. Do I love oversized sunglasses like Nicole Richie wears ON Nicole Richie? Sure. Does that mean either of those things in my house or on my body? No. And it's OK to look at something that everyone loves and say, "I don't get it. It's ugly to me." Much like a piece of art. I look at all of these blogs and think that because they are suggesting it that I need to like it too. Well, some things people do are just ugly to me. And some I like. So, I guess that's my opinion today!
