Terri, you are so right. I prefer to decorate according to what I like and not what’s the short term fashion trend. Our beautiful, timeless, classic, solid wood kitchen cupboards also cost literally a third of what the quote was for the in fashion duco cupboards were in 2016.

of course things date, but such is life. New tech, new materials, improved functionality, change of lifestyles. nothing is ”timeless” nor should it be, unless we would prefer to cook on a fire in a cave?
