After a well needed break. I'm back, like Britney. I took a couple weeks off from blogging... one to just enjoy my family over the holidays, two because the shop has been grabbing my attention, and there were a couple days I didn't even know my name.
But blah blah blah, I'm here now! The other day Elle Decor came out with their 2013 trends in design. I thought it was interesting, some are (duh) moments, and others... I don't really agree. Here she be.
Trend #1= Lots of Brass. Completely agree. Brass has been peeking it's toe in the room with hardware, brass animals, and mirrors. Now it's ready for "It's best year". Who coined that phrase anyway? Oprah? Isn't every new year, your best year?
Trend #2 = Emerald Green. This is a duh. Not only is it an amazing color, it's the Pantone color of the year, which means we are going to see it in EVERYTHING. Sometimes that makes me sad, because some people overuse it. Just because it's the color of the year, don't make every accent in it, Target. You know who you are.
Trend #3 = Lace. Hmmm.. seems a little winter to me, but whatever. Come on in lace.
Trend #4 = Beige. This one I don't completely agree with. I'm sorry, but I thought you had been here already. Don't get me wrong, I love a little neutral, or a neutral room... but give me a light gray, not a builder's beige.
