Are you sitting down??
I have a confession.
I. Kelsey Coghill. am feeling OVER. pinterest.
ugh. I'm sorry. I just feel so over-exposed to so many trends/themes/ideas that I begin to hate them.
and I feel as if none of us are ever going to have an original thought ever again. myself included.
don't get me wrong. it is most definitely an open tab right now on my browser. I go there probably twice daily.
But it got me thinking about what things I am over and what I"m not over yet.
and where will these images come from?? pinterest duh. built in source citing.
1. Keep calm & whatever
I never liked this actually. I think it was the crown. I've never been a princess-y girl. But this has been done so so many times and so many different ways with so many ridiculous phrases.
I never liked the owl craze, I do think these owls are cute, but when they are every where... it ruins it for me.
I just plain never understood this. and don't like it.
OVER : but wish that I wasn't but someone else ruined it for me.
1. Chevron Stripes
and the faux animal heads (or real) thanks Candice Olson for that one. I normally would really like chevron stripes, but like everyone in the world has them in their home and it cheapens it for me.
2. Sunburst mirrors
Isn't this pretty? I do think it's pretty, but everyone and their brother has one! I missed out on this one being out of the country.... maybe I'll find one at the goodwill after everyone has gotten rid of theirs and proudly hang it up :)
and by silhouettes I mean stuff like this. dogs. I like silhouettes of actual children or what not.
Not Over Yet :
I'll probably never be over birds because I liked them way way before it was trendy. honest. But you probably won't catch me painting them on my wall anytime soon.
2. Maps and globes
this one is lasting for me. I love maps and globes and travel and the world. period.
3. Gallery Walls
the more the merrier!!
4. Painted floors
I have always loved and dreamed of having a floor just like this ever since my older sister painted the stairs in our old house. someday...
5. Letters and Ampersands
so maybe I am over all the writing and letters directly on the walls (vinyl letters) but I am in no way over wood or metal letters. especially ampersands. &&&&& love them.
So there you have it.... my personal opinions.
If you have a house full of owls and chevron strips floor to ceiling I will not judge you. promise. As long as you don't judge me for having every available walls space filled with frames and birds ;)
What do you think?? Anything you can't stand anymore and/or would never put in your house??
