Classics We Love

Classics We Love

Thanks for playing along with our classic favorites poll, you guys were great sports! Couldn’t get everything on here or I’d be up all night, but I did the best I could with my considerable limitations! Does it look like us? I think the dog with his tongue out really does look just like us. He belongs for sure.

It’s not too late to play along, just keep on adding your classics!

PS. I haven’t yet figured out how to get the credits to appear. For now you can click on the mosaic and it will go to Flickr. I will add credits as soon as I figure out how!

Classic Style — Participation Required

Classic Style -- Participation Required


Now that we all agree (well, everyone who commented yesterday, I am sure there are plenty that disagree!) that timeless beauty (with room for a little trendy flair in a few accessories perhaps) is the way to go for our homes, we need to come up with a list of classics. The things that you can always use in your home design or architecture that will have a timeless appeal.

For each of us, the definition of what is classic or what is a favorite might be a little different, but that is why today, VIEWER PARTICIPATION is required. You view my post, you comment! Got it? Good! If I don’t see 500 comments here, I’m coming after you, no lurkers today. I want everyone’s favorites that have stood the test of time.

I want us all to stretch our appreciation to include a wider range of classic style for the home. And maybe learn about a few classic things we didn’t know about before. It can be things like pedestal sinks, ironstone, hexagon tiles, black & white, slipcovers, white porcelain clawfoot tubs, swing arm lamps, whatever seems timeless to you. You can list one or more things. Don’t be shy, this is not a scientific poll. It is just for fun and no one will judge you for your thoughts. First 10 people to comment get bonus points. Designers, you participate too! Everyone!

Ok, here we go!
