I have to admit, I find I can be kind of a sucker for design trends. I mean, I do think you can carry things too far.
For example, silhouettes are cool.
Custom-made silhouettes of your family members are a little over-the-top.
Custom-made silhouettes of your dog are so far over the top, it’s like they were shot from a cannon.
And then there’s the white craze. When you find a thing that has a lovely shape but ugly coloration and paint it white, that’s cute.
Painting gilt framed mirrors and metallic chandeliers white, okay, but I think you’ll regret it when the trend is over.
Painting every single thing in your house white…well, it will force you to be really clean, I guess.
And then, of course, there’s putting a bird on it, which is funny because it’s true.
So here is my secret shame: I’m planning to make my guest room all white (white walls with white patterned curtains on a white background) and decorate it with silhouettes of birds. Not just ordinary silhouettes, either: vinyl transfers, a trend which is pretty much guaranteed to look 100% cheesy and dated a year from now, assuming it doesn’t already.
Thank you for joining us for this week’s episode of Friday Secret Shame. Enjoy your weekend.
