This weekend I listed my pink Keep Calm and Carry On print on eBay. A sad day. When I bought it four years ago from Keep Calm Gallery (who incidentally have some AMAZING stuff) in the UK, (because they weren’t selling them here in Australia then) nobody else had one. And then when everyone else started to cotton on, at least mine was different because it was pink. But now the design has been so done I just can’t have it in my home anymore. I’m sick of seeing it!
The same happened to me with tram scroll art. I was an early adopter of that too. Now every second home has one (vintage, screen print or wall decal). Sigh. I still love it though and black and white things are slow to date so it’s staying! For now.
How about you? What trend, which you loved when you first saw it, have you now got sick of seeing? Chevron? Blackboard paint? Cowhide rugs?*
*Disclaimer: I love all those things.
