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:

pink camo crib bedding

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:

 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!

    It prevents the build-up dirt and other gritty
    particles. Thankfully Bissell carpet cleaner wheels snap
    right into the wheel hub (getting the old one out is a different story, I
    usually just drill it out since I’m going to throw the old wheel away anyway).

    The four methods of carpet cleaning in Atlanta and some basic information about them are listed below to help you in making your

    I did finish cleaning the rest of the carpet which
    took an hour and several changes of dirty and clean water
    but the carpet was clean. This can present a problem because you will want to clean carpets in rooms on a daily basis in order ensure that the carpets
    stay in good condition. Get rid of as a whole lot caked dirt
    and residue as you can prior to shampooing.
