Last weekend Tess and I were invited by some of my very talented girlfriends to tag along with them on The Rose City Yarn Crawl. What is a Yarn Crawl? So glad you asked.
It’s like a Pub Crawl, but instead of consuming mass amounts of alcohol, your brain is inundated with the magic and creative spirit of knitting. (My son did note that several of the shops sounded like pubs. The Naked Sheep, Knit Purl, Twisted… he might have a point.)
Today is one of my favorite Sundays. For some, Super Bowl Sunday is huge, but in my book, THIS is the first major Sunday of the year. That’s right… I’m talking about the Academy Awards. The fashion, the celebrities, the movies… it’s just the most fabulous day! So in honor of all the glamour, I have a quick and easy way to add some Oscar gold to your home.
A few months ago I had a conversation with someone about why a home design blogger like myself follows fashion.
It was a fair question.
Personally, I like to keep up on the latest fashion trends, but I am in no way considered a fashion guru. If I have extra cash to spend, you will find me reviewing my home decor wish list before you’ll find me trying on a fabulous pair of boots. And I do love me some fabulous boots.
But the truth of the matter is what you see strutting down the catwalk influences what you’ll be seeing strutting across your favorite interior design magazines. In the past, it has taken a season or two for the fashion influence to reach home decor, but in this highly technical world, that window is getting smaller.
So with NYC Spring Fashion Week just wrapping up, l am launching a new series: Fashion Influences in Home Decor. There are several hot looks on the horizon…. some are new and some have been around but are only going to intensify.
For this first week and in honor of the 86th Academy Awards this Sunday, let’s look at Metallics.
My favorite trend this Valentine’s season is the Arrow. It’s a fresh twist on traditional holiday hearts and it’s a fun way to decorate for Valentine’s Day without getting too cutesy. Not only is it a style that can endure far beyond February 14th, but it echoes the chevron craze that is still so hot in home decor.
A couple of looks that have really caught my eye include:
Last week, I was nominated by a sweet friend for an Apartment Therapy Homie. This award is in it’s sixth year and it’s a great way to discover Home Design blogs.
Although Storypiece is a small fish in a very big pond, it’s still a huge honor and I value the opportunity to meet other bloggers and readers because of it. So if you have a few minutes, check out The Homies nominees. You are guaranteed to be inspired.
