Rewind back to 1999!

Growing up I always had an interest in interior design. One weekend while my parents were away, I stayed with my aunt and uncle and we decided it would be a perfect time to repaint my bedroom! We painted the trim in two different colors, painted the walls, and I thought it was perfect. I think my mom had other thoughts when she saw what we had done, but I was pleased with our work! :)

I was constantly rearranging my room, changing the posters on my wall, making collages and framing them, etc. I loved designing my space using what I had...even if it was clippings from BOP magazine!

I mentioned in my profile that I had a style file. This folder had pictures that I ripped out of magazines, articles I found intriguing, color swatches/patterns I loved, etc. Recently I took a trip through that file again and was kind of shocked that my ideas of style really haven't changed! I'm not sure if that's good or bad, but oh well!

Take a look at what spaces I fell in love with in 1999:

The First Home of Juliette Lewis
InStyle magazine, September 1999 issue

Kevin Costner's Home
InStyle magazine, September 1999 issue

I guess I have come to the conclusion that I still find these spaces pleasing because they aren't really trendy spaces, they are just beautiful ones! I tend to not follow the trends and just buy what I like...while that may include a trendy piece or two, I think my style will remain the same.

I find that my tastes, more then change, they "Evolve". I'd like to think the evolution is to better and better taste, but who knows :)
