Research, research and more research – it’s what designers do. I often wade into the murky, slimy, mostly silly world of interior design trends to see if I can find even a teeny-tiny bit of inspiration.
I started out today in a mature, positive place. I need to look at what interior designers are pushing with fresh eyes and an open mind.

Vintage! one of a kind pieces
Florals and Chintz
Navy is the new neutral
Return to tradition

Anyway, in an attempt to not feel like the last few hours of my life were wasted, here’s a little snarkfest I put together from this morning’s notes.
