I'm getting ready to go on vacation so haven't had a chance to tend to the blog at all. My first real vacation since the spring so looking forward to it!

On today there is an article entitled, "For fall, 'Perfect' is out." Certainly fitting for our current economic situation - who has money to spend on a perfectly refined home these days? To me great decor and style is about having objects collected over the years, each with a story or memory, an eclectic mix of pieces. Deborah Needleman, of our dearly beloved Domino, speaks to this " and style."

I'm not, however, a huge fan of this 'Americana' they speak of. "Americana is big. You'll see the flag and other patriotic symbols rendered in faux-vintage painted wood, distressed cotton and painted tin." Sounds like something straight out of Pottery Barn. Which is probably why the slide show that accompanies the article is full of it!
