I'm really loving your prediction. I predict more use of burlap and natural fabrics such as linens and of course cotton. The weathered look will definitely be a hit. Of course, the Paris look will start showing up everywhere.I'm not a designer but I try to keep up.Thanks for the update and I agree completely.Better get my paintbrushes out and start getting some furniture ready for my booth this spring.
I love the weathered look because I love primitives!! Painted furniture pieces are my favorite and then distressed or sanded a little. My house will fit right in this year !!!!
I like it all but the gray..to my, gray is depressing! Mt tub area looks a bit like that. MERRY CHRISTMAS :D
I wonder if the new weathered and treasured look is different from our peely, vintage look?I know that I will like it anyway!Love all the images. Those blue cabinets are gorgeous!Rhonda

Linda, you made me laugh out loud with your take on the weathered and treasured style...loved it.
I've always loved this look and will be especially glad if it's IN! Merry Christmas and Happy Soon to be a Grandmom day! :)
Oooo I love it.
2 decades of only affording chipped-cracked-paint-needs-fixing have put me on top of this trend!! Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
I like the weathered look, Vicky. I hope you are all enjoying this Christmas season...Christine
Oh, oh, oh! This is JUST what I am trying to achieve with my huge 'table in the garage!' Thanks for the photos and inspiration!
I do hope your prediction is gone be right! I love the weathered look!I wonder if there will be a difference in style between Europe and the US?Thank you so much for the beautiful pictures!xxGreet
I love the painted and distressed look, but not the seriously distressed look of some of the photos. I do appreciate a natural distressed look, though. My table and chairs are worn with age and I gave them new seat covers, I do need to do something about the chippy wood veneer on it. I am not too crazy about grey. It looks so nice in photos that I have seen, but I couldn't live with it. It eats up the light and I NEED light. I have so enjoyed your blog this year, I hope you have enjoyed blogging and continue for some time yet. Hugs, Cindy S.
I for one am voting with you. I love the weathered look. Hope your New Year is wonderful and everything you have hoped for.Carolhttp://wwwbeenblogged.blogspot.com/
I too adore the weathered look and plan to use it in 2010 when we create our new kitchen/dining room.Joyeux fetes.Leeann x
That Swedish inspired room just took my breath away, because I have the same carved trim (unpainted) in a room that I've been aching to redo. I was ready to just rip it out until I saw that weathered shade of aqua. WOW!
OH MY GOSH!!! That is the most stunning bathroom I have ever seen! I so love the look of all those photos,such warmth! Hope your Christmas was good,xoxoxo
Too funny!!! He will if the kids ever go out for any length of time!!!! 0x0x0x
I love your pictures, especially the turquoise cabinetry. I think we will see more of the time-worn, distressed look. As long as it is authentic. Also, more natural fabrics in neutral colors--linen, hemp, burlap, etc. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment. -Delores
I'd better get busy with my 2010 projects - slipcovers, understated draperies, painted side table and repainting the interior of my house.
Great look and timeless. I think the lighter look that we're seeing more shows that people want a more uplifting feel.....just like in their lives!Carole
Yes I do like it , infact I too look "weathered and treasured" so I guess Moi is waaay ahead of style for once!!! LOL
Love the look but must admit, I am not about to begin giving my present furniture a distressed and/or worn painted look. Plan though to wrap a few seat cusions in Down to soften their appearance and use more natural fabrics in my decor. -Brenda-
That weathered, rustic look would look more convincing with a renaissance art print.
