BRIANA: Credit to KELLEY for bringing this House Beautiful 2013 trend roundup to my attention. Camouflage is generally used for concealment, but it sure stood out on the listCAMILLE says “h*ll to the no on the camo,” but I want to hear what you think. Is camo a bold and pretty pattern or do you wish it’d just disappear into the scenery?

KELLY SMITH TRIMBLE: When I first saw this pic, I thought camo was referring to the green color on the wall. But when I realized it was the pink and orange fabric, I was disappointed. I actually really dig the army green color, and I could see using a little green and brown camo for a campy style, but I’m not as keen on the re-colorized versions. They’re not offensive to me, just a little too cheeky.

JACKIE MCGILVRAY: It’s hard to believe they call those chairs camo – I think that’s reaching.  They should put some real redneck fabric on there, then ask the question.

LIZ: Wow, that camo is pretty well camouflaged! It took me about 30 seconds to spot it. It’s one of those things that’s really hard to do well.  Tiny splashes in bright, poppy colors like the dining chair upholstery are one thing, but it can go off the rails pretty fast:

(You’ll be invisible while you sleep…in the forest?) So, camo with extreme caution?

DAVID HAYNES: Perfect for your tree stand!

LILI: My knee-jerk reaction was, “Oh no no nononono. No.” Like Liz’s example, I feel like a space can all too easily turn into a duck blind if you use camo in it. But digging around a little bit I found this:

gray camo

I have to say, I don’t hate it. It’s obviously balanced out in this loft room with loads of white and it’s muted, almost abstract. With all those qualifiers, I think I might like it for a teenager’s room.

KELLEY: Having grown up with skinny boys who drove muddy Jimmys and had Skoal rings in the back pocket of their camos, I have to decline the trend. Though if I were forced into using it, I’d pick pink!

ABBI: I never considered this a trend I would defend, but after doing some research for the next room I’m decorating, our nursery, I think I found something:

On second thought, I might never be able to find the baby if she’s camouflaged so well in this bedding…so, camo is out for me.

FARIMA: I like army camo in design and fashion, but cringe at the sight of hunter-style camo. Cute:

Not cute at all:

 TYLER WISLER: Camouflage in my mind is considered a neutral, really. It’s sort of like leopard print. You can mix and match it with basically anything. I LOVE camo! I even went ahead and installed a black & gray camouflage wallcovering in my son’s room! I used it just underneath a chair rail I installed and it’s the perfect backdrop for anything I put on top of it! LOVE!

We haven’t concealed our true feelings about camo patterns…now tell us what you think!

  1. In addition, person responsible for your personal injury that you have suffered will be
    put to justice and will have to pay for the
    physical and psychological damages. Such legal inquiries
    are generally done by lawyers. This also means that there is a greater chance of automobile accidents.

  2. It is recommended, that household should at least get their carpet

    Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with SEO?
    I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not
    seeing very good success. If you know of any please
    share. Thank you!

  8. Sexual positions and ‘special methods’ of sexual intercourse suggested by
    sex experts are not the things that lead to sexual satisfaction. Being
    unable to achieve an erection once in a while is fairly common.
    The movie is, however, a romantic comedy, and that means the ‘sex friends’ business is
    bound to backfire.
