Glamouflage 2012.

I nearly spit out my chocolate cream pie  last week in Idaho City when I overheard a young couple talking about the camo themed wedding they had just attended. “The bride had a camo sash and all the guests wore camo accents” she gushed.

I imagine the spectacular sight looked a little something like this. The social event of the season, no doubt.

Then suddenly and seemingly out of nowhere (perhaps because it blended in so well? Gaffaw, Gaffaw) camo appeared everywhere in fall fashion.

I immediately found myself wondering whether or not this print would translate well to interior trends. There are whispers of imagery sprinkled throughout the web suggesting that I am onto something. And love it or hate it, I see big, square, fluffy down-filled camo accent pillows in Suite Potato Store’s future…

Camo wall accent. A definite statement but the grey scale keeps it surprisingly subtle. Home Designing.

Canary yellow! This conjures up all sort of possible combinations. The yellow accents could just as easily be a shade of florescent pink to be used in a girls room. Houzz

I’m swooning over these Lima-bean-green chairs. I am very on board with camo as a detailed accent (displayed in lampshade.) It’s not the first thing you notice when you see the room but it makes second and third glances more interesting and dynamic. Suite 106 Blog

How would you incorporate camo print pillows into your setting, you ask? I was thinking a little something like this:

Sofa: Joss and Main.  Canvas Art Trio: Didgi Widgi Non-camo pillows: Furbish and West Elm. Side table: West Elm. Tripod floor lamp: Target.

The Resting Room.

Restroom. Toilet. The Can.  Bathroom. El Baño. Loo.

A room that,  in my ever-growing humble opinion, should never be neglected. It’s a place of great concentration and vulnerability and thus should coddle its user in every way possible to ensure maximum relaxation and… ease.

Have I over-thought this?

Special Man Friend would argue that I’ve never over-thought anything in my life. Careful, buddy. I could make your tinkle-time a lot less luxurious in the blink of an eye. Don’t pretend you haven’t gotten used to silky-soft toilet paper, aromatherapy hand soap, perfectly compartmentalized medicine cabinet and the buffet of toiletries and fluffy cotton balls that await you with every visit.

I’m into brown right now. Brown is cool. And warm. And easier to keep clean than white. Especially if you live with a boy. Archzine.

DDelightfully feminine. Digging the porcelain box sinks. Rdujour.

Ode to the outhouse. Premier Living.

YES. Love everything about this. Tailored, modern, androgenic, striped, tinned. Spectacular. Fine Composition.

The perfect wall color. Archzine.

More vertical stripes. Vintage but not cutesy. Habitually Chic.

Oooh so modern-minimalist. I feel like number twos would be a no-no in this bathroom. Too much clutter. Trendir.

And on the totally opposite end of the spectrum, this may be the busiest bathroom of them all. Sarathina.


I’m craving a bathroom makeover. Time to tone down the feminine accents and introduce some new warmer winter tones. I see brown in my future.

Wait. Gross. I didn’t mean that.
