When I visited the Zara Home store in Barcelona in 2010, I was a little disappointed. I know that Zara's business model is largely based on throw-out trends and economies of scale. But does this model really work in interiors? And if so, what could fashion giants Zara offer that isn't already offered everywhere else?
I constantly skimp on price for trendy fashion, but when it comes to interiors I look for quality. If I were looking for "trendy" home items, it would certainly not be pre-wrinkled linens, metallic weave and milk glass votives. Is it just me? Give me faux malachite, blue & white china, burlwood, kilim rugs and we might be onto something...
My question is: Would you spend on throw-out trends for your home and if so, which ones?
I'm willing to give their tableware a chance. How about you?
Grace talked about facial oil. I'm sold.
Mackenzie wrote a few thoughts on self employment.
As Jessica pointed out, there's something kind of sexy about a well decorated bachelor pad.

I officially want to look like this all winter long.
Happy weekend everyone!
