Trends that I am totally in love with:
Subway art. I love that it is customizable or could be completely generic and anyone can do it.
The awesome amount of boy fabrics! I don't have little girls, but I have found that I love to sew. I am happy that my choices are growing almost exponentially for cute fabrics that I can use for some boy projects.
Women DIYers. In a field that is so dominated by men, it is nice to see some women stepping in and taking charge. You ladies rock!
Trends that I am NOT digging:
A wreath for every occasion. I hang a wreath for Christmas, I might even make one for spring/summer, but I don't really feel the need to have one for every holiday/event/minor holiday etc. Call me lazy, but I just don't change out my decorating that often. I also just don't have the space to store 12 wreaths in my house. Who knows, I might change my mind about this once the construction on my house is complete. I couldn't bring myself to post a photo of a few tacky wreaths that I have seen lately because the creators were so proud of them.
White! Everything being white. Yes, I understand the nice clean look white brings, but I do not have the time, nor care to keep it looking THAT white. I have two boys, two dogs and a husband, I don't like to bleach everything in my home. When I see a ton of white, it reminds me of hospitals and I spend way too much time in hospitals (had surgery yesterday). It is not a color that is inviting and I love color. White is actually the absence of all color.
Chevron stripes. I like them, but feel completely overwhelmed with how often I am seeing them. In my opinion a little goes a long ways and I am seeing it taken just too far. I have really liked some chevron pillows that I have seen lately, I do not like an entire wall or full sized area rug done with a chevron stripe, it just overloads my senses.
What trends are you loving/hating out there in blogland? I would love to hear from you.
