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:

Raw Wood

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!
