We have literally shopped thrift stores and flea markets since we met in sixth grade. Both our mother's instilled this love for good thrifty finds. But don't kid yourself, you still have to be "thrifty" while shopping at thrift stores. Key note: going on the sale days! Just ask Melissa, her "Martha Stewart" closet is filled with millions of thrift store finds just begging to be up-cycled! Spending money anywhere just adds up. You may ask, "why do you need to wait for a sale at a thrift store??" I know, it sounds like an oxymoron...Thrift store/Sale...? But to truly get those great finds worth up-cycling or repurposing it's a must!

So here's where the second third of our divided craft time comes into play. We have both recovered, refinished, revamped, re-everything and we are now going to pass these awesome treasures on to you! Vintage-inspired, modern-chic, you name it, we are going to do it!
Back to the subject at hand....2011 Home Decor Trends... I usually refuse to research trending topics. How could I do such a thing? I tell myself, a true crafter and designer doesn't follow trends but sets the trends. So, I did it. I GOOGLED it... I sat down to write this post and thought that I had to have something backing up my claim. And I'm so excited to report that Posh House has hit the nail on the head! Our new Spring line at Posh House Originals is spot on.
According to Michelle Lamb, the editorial director of "The Trend Curve" shared her design outlook for 2011. She states that "shoppers can expect to see furniture and accessories which combine classic elements with contemporary details, incorporating texture into upholstery fabrics, metals and wood." I'm getting so excited even thinking about the possibilities this year! You will see "puckers, pleats, tweeds, frayed edges, woven-in ribbons and embossing. Understated raw looks are rising." Michelle Lamb defines 2011's style as a "merging of vintage and modern." Traditional style is going to collide with modern chic details. A combination like this is going to rock your socks off! There will be no limits to this combination! My favorite of all and something that we have already began to include in our shop are reclaimed woods and upcycled items.
