Trend Alert

This morning while browsing through Elle Decor i read about this Trend Alert, Floral patterns are IN. They say "Flowers burst into full bloom on the season’s prettiest designs, from delicately painted tableware to boldly patterned textiles."

As I read about it I realized I didn’t possess a single bed sheet/cover, a vase, a piece of china, a rug or anything for that matter with a floral pattern. I have never been the types to like floral prints. Do you like floral prints?

But on the other hand i love fresh flowers. I always try and get them home. On big days like Diwali, New Year, etc i always make it a point to go to the Phoolwali mandi at Mehrauli and fill up my home with flowers in every little nook and corner. Even when I don’t have fresh flowers at home I like getting greens from my little garden in the balcony and arranging them in transparent glass vases. So I guess I am more of a fresh flower person and not the pattern types. And I don't think even this trend alert will make me buy stuff with floral designs. What do you think of trends? Will you go and get a little bit of trend in your house even if you are not the type to believe it or you just go with what you like? I'd love to hear about this from you.

Leaving you with some pictures we had taken at a Flower fair. Enjoy.

p.s. Hey, i just found something floral at my place. This batik painting i did at this awesome centre for batik at Kuala Lumpur in 2006. More about this in another post.

Love your batik painting! I am not one for flowery stuff either - always associated it with oldies:)but I am just beginning to appreciate them - it's a cycle I think - every now and then, fashions come back, reincarnated so as to please the current generation:)

Back to your batik painting - it's the most unique piece of batik work I have ever seen!
