I don't know about you but sometimes I feel like i'm SOOOOO out of the loop on home interior design and fashion! I use to consider myself somewhat of a stylish gal... but when you have to txt (I guess I'm not TOO out of it if I txt, right?) your 26 year old step-daughter and ask her -if you can wear leggings under a denim jumper because you're just not sure- you start to feel a bit old and out of it...
I'm totally UNinspired about our house lately... Reason #1- I don't really LOVE the style of our home. It's about 9 or 10 years old, has a wide open floor plan, and zero character. I am in love with either Frank Lloyd Wright styles
or OLD Victorian homes.
I did a search this morning on what's "HOT" in interior colors and as I told you before, Pantone says TURQUOISE is the 2010-Color-of-the-Year
and why shouldn't it be...
does it get any better than that? Not in my world!!
According to the experts the hot colors (in addition to turquoise) are:
muted yellowy greens
now THAT'S pink... not sure I could talk the Mister into that :) Hmmm, a light pink might look pretty off my butter-yellow entry... :) I do love me some PINK!
I love the above room! I've always been a huge fan of purple and all the shades inbetween. The 1st house I bought I did a LOT of purple... Purple dining room, dark Plum velvet curtains, Lavender counter tops in my kitchen... Hey, I was a single gal and it was a total girly cottage! but... I kinda purpled myself out. When I see Lavender used the way it is in that photo, I kinda fall in love with it all over again though...
Ok, so I like the interiors, but gals, let me tell you the Fashion trends for 2010 (found on fashionising.com).... Well, see for yourself:
HOT pants, or big-momma underpants as I like to call them! I'm quite sure this is the style my Grandma (who is 100) sports UNDER her light blue polyester pants!
Warrior Style... I'll be right back, I'm going to pick up a loaf of bread and a box of tampons in town, while I'm there I'm also going to fight off that Amish gang that's trying to steal my straight pins for their man-folks pants.
Jodhpurs... Is is just me or should she crawl back into her coffin & shine her fangs? and Yes, I am jealous of her LONG skinny legs (FYI- i am still 4', 11- 3/4" tall)
SHEER... always nice for your daughter's school functions!
Prints- No, I'm not crazy, why do you ask?
Cut-out Bikini's... Ummmm, I don't even know what to say about these.
Bunny-Ear head bands. How do you wear these in the car when you're picking your kid up from school? Do your ears rub the top of your car ceiling? and where is the wad of cotton that should be pinned to your seat?
Bleached eyebrows...ummmm, again.... I have no words.
Now this, THIS I can get into!
I personally would love to wear rhinestones on my lips, turquoise eye shadow and a goldfish necklace- maybe I'm not as out of it as I thought!!!
Well girls, we are outta here for our annual ski weekend... IF i get really crazy, I'll try to do 1 more blog to post before I leave in the morning :)
