May House Beautiful: '101 Designer Secrets'
You know how there is continual discussion about trends, and what is hot/not, in/out?
House Beautiful indirectly broaches this subject in their feature on Designer Secrets. This isn't so much about trends as it is things they like to do over and over, but the ideas or the thought processes behind some things that drive trends are there.
HB not only published designer ideas that were completely contradictory to each other, they listed them Adjacent to each other. :)
So, *Curtains should be hemmed so that they clear the floor up to 1" to hang in a straight unfussy way, is listed next to *Curtains should break about 1/2", anything less is like highwater pants.
*Line curtains in colors that match the face material is right next to *Line all your drapes in white to prevent a kaleidescope effect on the exterior of your house
And so on.
It just shows that it is a matter of opinion that even respected designers don't necessarily reach a consensus on.
