According to Better Homes and Gardens Decorating Trends I am apparently very “in” at this moment. The article said that the following are trends in decorating right now:
Check. I am getting ready for a wall of unfinished, weathered wood for our bedroom.
School House Items Re-purposed
Check. The office is coming along nicely.
Check, check and double check.
I guess the guy at Home Depot better learn what this stuff is if it is trendy. He looked at me like I was crazy! Thank you Hancock Fabric for carrying the stuff.
Baby Boy said that the Mudroom Bench looks like melted sherbert. I can now tell him that melted sherbert is trendy!
There was one trend I will never follow: Wallpaper. I have spent enough time removing wallpaper in homes we purchased that I will never be responsible for doing that to another human being.
Gold and brass are also trendy right now. I am old enough that I already lived through the shiny brass trend once already. Not such a fan. It goes in the country blue and mauve with ducks spouting “Welcome Friends” category.
I guess I can be trendy when I choose to be!

You go girl! But never say never !! If you check out my post: Oops I did it again, you’ll see I felt the same way as you…and then…..
Looks great. I love the look.
LOL – blue, mauve, & brass! Must be my age! I do like some of the brass accessories that I have seen – like brass book ends, owls, or elephants… have you seen a lot of those, too? I also love the nailhead detail. Adds so much to furniture. I have not tried anything with them yet, but it’s on my radar. I hope you do a post on your wood wall in your bedroom. Sounds really cool!
Rebecca, I have a married son and a soon to be married daughter so I am no spring chicken. I like the gold leaf look but still can’t get excited about brass. I am excited about the bedroom but it is going to have to wait until after the wedding June 1. Before we leave for the big event we have to finish a big project we are working on and I have quite a few crafty things to do for The Southern Belle’s wedding. It will definitely get posted when we get it done! Thanks for reading my blog.
