I for one am tired of hearing "it's a trendy color and it won't be around for long". I'm sorry but if I like a stays for quite a while. I am not a "trendy" person nor do I spend money on "trends". Stupid.

Ann, it wasn't so long ago that my beige walls and brass fixtures were considered out. When we built our home in 2000, beige was considered boring but I didn't want to be locked into something more colorful. (I know, it's "only paint," unless you hate to paint and "only" goes out the door.) And brass was plentiful. A few years later when I wanted to add a ceiling fan in my kitchen, which has pendant lights with brass poles, I was very limited in what I could find in brass. Now both my beige and brass are back in fashion. My daughter was visiting a couple of weeks ago and had a friend come over to visit. The daughter doesn't care too much about what's in but her friend was impressed that my decor, which is almost all original, was so current. So, just wait a while and whatever color you have will be back in fashion. In the meantime, what you like is much more important than what others say is in style.
