Lately I have been noticing a strange pattern in my purchases: I feel less and less practical all the time. When Mike and I got married (over one year ago!), I registered for very white, and very practical dishes at Pottery Barn. I LOVE THEM. I figured that as long as the dishes were white, they'd go with anything I decided to buy later on. So I could still fall in love with trendy dish accessories, but my basics would always be beautiful and classy. I am super smart.
While decorating our apartment, and continuing to make small purchases here and there to finish up the task, I have noticed that I keep buying things that are funky green. I'm not sure what to call this color--it's just funky. Kind of avocodo, kind of a pea green. Regardless of its name, I love it, and it is becoming more and more prevalent in our very small San Francisco apartment.
My question(s) is(are) this: when is this color going to go out of style? When am I going to look back and laugh at how ugly it is? Will I ever? Will it die just like it did in the 70's? Is it worth it to enjoy the color for years until my kids refuse to live in a house accented with it? And am I crazy to think that all of these lovely funky green items are, well, lovely?
