Sometimes the NY Times reads my mind in a creepy way, i.e. All That Authenticity May Be Getting Old. Read and tell me what you think!

And in other news, turns out the map tote trend is spreading. I saw this the other day at J. Crew in Georgetown, of all places.

Bon weekend, everyone, and happy Halloween!! - Posted using BlogPress from my iPad

Over-saturation? It's the old saying, "a little goes a long way"

Loved reading this article and the fact you're putting it out there ~ I had a thought along these same lines not too long ago... In today's world, it seems there are some that will buy "one of a kind" items just because they are one of a kind, and it's become the same concept as those who shop purely from one catalog and find the room to all of a sudden look "cookie cutter". I think that when an artifact has meaning to you, that's when it belongs in your home. I try to live by this ~ I don't want to buy a piece of driftwood just because it's a neat artifact, but if I found a pretty piece of driftwood on my favorite beach, I'd think of it as appropriate to display and keep the memory alive. I hope that makes sense :)

The author kept repeating herself in the article..but, I agree, all this "faux" old is looking old and tired...

I so agree with you and as a store and brand owner of "Interieurs", I feel the negative effect of the "mass market". We were once quoted by the New york Times: Where do pottery barn and other retailers get their inspirations? they shop Interieurs... It is really sad and tiresome that great design style and vignette get so diluted. We just have to keep a step ahead!
