The good thing (one of many) about home ware is that trends aren’t so much of a thing. Your personal tastes, however, well that’s another story and perhaps you’re someone who’s mind is ever changing or who is affected by indecision. Personally, I see indecision as a good thing, showing openness and good judgment in a person (even if it does mean everything takes longer than it should do). I rarely buy home ware in matching sets and although there are a few themes around my house (as you’ll notice from the image links above), it doesn’t look like a scene from an Ikea catalogue. I like to buy from different stores / artists, and I buy what I like, not what I think will ‘go’. With clothing and outfit construction, you have to commit because piecing conflicting items together will look odd; you will look crazy. But with home ware, there is less demand for committal in that you can find a place for everything, and if something doesn’t fit in one room, you can make it fit in another. Maybe I just tell myself these things as a way to make myself feel better about buying so many plates, or maybe it’s true, and even a very good reason to spend more money filling my kitchen cupboards than my wardrobe.
