Just this afternoon I was wandering around the Club Monaco in my neighborhood, drooling over all of the Navajo/French/Adventurer style touches that are infiltrating this season, both in the clothes and in the store decor. Minnetonka moccasins, Pendleton print shawls and scarves, rugged canvas and duffel backpacks, lots of stripes, and antique trophy and vintage frames hung from the walls… it all gave me a serious case of the Aesthetically Pleasing Excitement. (APE. No no, it’s a real thing! What, you think I make this stuff up??) (I was particularly tempted by a little Pendleton wallet–wouldn’t it look so chic coming out of a leather shopper?)
In a few weeks we are moving to our bigger place, and I am so excited because I get to basically start from scratch. Aside from our bed and our sofa and a few small pieces (which is all that would fit in our current space!), we’ll have just about nothing! A blank slate! And I am so excited to mix together my favorite styles into one seriously rad space, and even more excited to write all about it here at the New Home Ec!
I’m calling it French Navajo Modern Industrial, and after the jump I’ve put together a slideshow of all the fashion inspiration images I’ve collected that I will (hopefully!) translate (soon!) into a cohesive overall design for my new home.
