on trend


Just a quick post today. My guests are on their way and we have a jam packed, 100 degree weekend ahead.
This Beni Ourain rug is super trendy right now. I normally don't apologize for my opinions but some of the most stylish people I know love these...and I don't.
In fact I hate them. Them remind me of a 1970s bachelor pad. Kinda skeevy and smelly. Sorry people but its trend I just can't get on board with.
What trend are you avoiding?

I'm not as offended as you are. I would not work for me, but my memories of a "shaggy" rug, are positive. That must be why It doesn't bother me.

Hi Kerry -
Hope you had a wonderful 4th! These are so popular right now. While I would not have one, I think they are very interesting and graphic. I kinda like them :-) Stay cool!
Cheers,

I am not a fan of this rug...it reminds me of a chain linked fence. HA

Enjoy the weekend with your friends and family! :)

okay, maybe not this one ... but i am loving a good creamy white shag with contemporary furniture ... it softens things a bit! Happy Day ... and fun with your friends!

Kerri, I don't hesitate to embrace a trend if I like it, but I have to agree with you on this one. I appreciate that its neutral and graphic, but it doesn't do a thing for me!

I think you are AWESOME for not jumping on the bandwagon. Just cuz it's trending doesn't mean it's good : )
