I'm not sure how this happened as I've always been very much a "silver person". I wear silver jewellery and throughout my life I've always preferred silver to gold; I've never been that keen on gold at all. However, over the last few months/years (I forget how long, time passes so quickly!) I've found myself loving the warm lively effect that gold accents can give. I've seen it used so beautifully in homes on so many blogs. It makes me question how influenced I am by the current trends. It seems that as gold became popular and on trend, I've gradually started to like it. Does continued exposure to something cause it to seep into our brains and our tastes until we end up liking it despite ourselves?!
I've never been a person to like something just because it's fashionable or trendy - it seems crazy to dress or decorate your home in a certain way just because it's on trend, when it may not even be to your personal taste. But I have noticed that sometimes my opinions change and I start to like these things I keep seeing around me. Am I that suggestible?! Do you find your tastes changing along with the current trends? (Not all of them of course - there are some that I'll never come around to!)
Well, I guess that if I like, I like it, and it doesn't really matter why! Just go with the flow, eh? (Although, I am fighting it - it feels like I'd be cheating on silver!!!)
Maybe I should give gold a go and see whether I can bring some gold accents into my home. I'm not quite sure how, though! (You can see I've been playing around with the few goldy items I have!) I wouldn't want to get rid of all my silver coloured bits and they feature quite a lot - handles on things, lamp stands, etc. What do you think, can you have gold and silver together or would it look wrong? (I don't know why I'm so cautious about it - I guess it's because it's something I've not tried before!)
If anyone has any pearls of wisdom, I would be grateful to hear them!
