The Portland area has a wonderful mini blanket of snow this weekend topped by some dangerous ice that is keeping my inside enjoying my coffee and fireplace today.
So I have to admit, while I like to keep up on trends, my home is an eclectic mix of what I love. A mish mash of farmhouse/boho/and lots of painted furniture.
I have forecasted trends that you may remember, most not brag-worthy but still worth mention:
- The Bomber jacket. Long before Top Gun this girl rocked a leather bomber jacket. It was not because I was cool or saw into the future, we lived in Minneapolis and my Step-dad had a sweet leather jacket from being overseas. And it was really cold, the jacket kept me warm, more function than style.
- Skinny jeans. Any of you “peg” your jeans when you were younger perhaps? Then you nailed that trend long before it was mainstream. We were soooooo cool.
- Ok last one, spray paint. I spray painted all of my furniture and accessories forever before spray paint was cool. I was a single mom trying to make her house look amazing on a zero budget so again, not about style as much as revamping what I had to last a little longer. Funny thing some things stick as I am sure I have 75+ different colors and kinds of spray paint. That is another day.
