Fashions for Fall are all about the 80’s and camo, the classic army print, is popping up everywhere. To my surprise, I never thought those faded, multi-colored camo cargo pants would make another entrance, but this pattern has been refashioned and renewed and on trend again. Even though this design was created as a disguise, its graphic nature is eye-catching, yet casual and you can mix and match, from sporty to sophisticated, from bohemian to uptown.
Camo complements our Fall sensibilities as our mood turns to the mottled and dusty hues of fallen leaves, the graying of days, the flapping of wings as birds take flight through the orange haze of a harvest moon. The woods beckon and our hearts beat stronger as we don this military inspired design, proudly proclaiming this style.
Why not consider the camo print on your windows and in your home? Yeah, I know you saw this coming! How could I not suggest this emblematic design? Your windows are fashion-ready too and camo is a fun and imaginative way to display this singular but expressive style.
Camo, of course is popular for boys and sometimes you just have to embrace the “GI Joe” theme and indulge the dreams of your little guys. The camo print is ubiquitous on wall paper, bedspreads, sheets, rugs and curtains and valances. You can surround his room in a camo jungle of designs or simplify the look against my favorite white wood blinds.
For a sleeker and modern update for the “skateboard crew”, this camo bedspread sets off the room against simple cotton drapes.
Camo style can be designed in a more feminine, evocative style by choosing a different camo color palette.
If you are totally inspired by the camo look, these hand painted wood blinds will make an impressive statement on any window and come in lots of colors and your windows will be the talk of your next party. No camouflage here, but pure panache!
For more a more muted forest look, these dappled, leaf patterned blinds will harmonize with wood tones in a library, den, or game or media room. All camo designed blinds blend into the “man-cave” of your favorite big guy.
Don’t overlook the chance to show off a mountain view and bring the outdoors, in.
Be “glamo-flage” and grab the camo fashion now, for yourself, for sure, and add these abstract animal and jungle prints to your decorating style book.
