Now, The Lettered Cottage people have just posted their idea of putting brick in their kitchen.
Here is the problem. If they do brick, they who have so many followers, will it become a trend? When you come into my kitchen, will you know immediately the year we built our house?
I want to pick timeless finishes and architectural features. I know that trends come and go and I'll allow for that in things like paint colors, rugs, and throw pillows, but I don't want the whole house to scream 2012!! for the next fifty years.
So, how do you decide on things that are fresh and new, but not so fresh and new that everybody is doing it (think mauve of the 90's and owls of the 70's)???
