following the herd…

the cheek of it…
years spent honing the eclectic, one-of-a-kind home of your dreams, with firm resolve to eschew trends, dismiss trade shows and defiantly fend-off the taunts of friends & family alike…

and then it happens…
your carefully-curated ‘vibe’ starts showing up at all the fashionista hotspots around town

as a case-in-point consider, if you will, the rise of the hide…

reindeer skins, strewn seductively over beds and benches, beckoning you to sit awhile… perhaps even stay the night?

sheepskins, seemingly from nowhere, shamelessly flaunt their wares everywhere from design blogs to shelter mags…

{note how they appear almost invariably draped over streamlined models with lean legs and a hint of curve… typical!}

and finally, the lowest of the low, cowskins… once the preserve of loft interiors, now the rug of choice for bungalows and boutique hotels the world throughout…

what’s a girl to do?

i say, trend or no trend
give me a sheepksin {the shaggier the better}
swathe my parquetry floors in hide until they can be seen no more
heck, throw in a reindeer skin for good measure
and one happy girl i’ll be…

even if i am just following the herd
