Hipster vs Shabby vs Clutter

Cozey Outdoor Living1024

Hipster styled interiors are 1. Yes, a thing and 2. more prominent in home and garden than we realize.Whoa, Bumble! Seriously?

Heck yes. And if you’re a regular scroller-througher of all things tumblr, ‘stagram or whatever, you’ve probably come across scenes of decor that would never grace the covers of Good Housekeeping.

I wouldn’t have cared much until one day Darling Daughter #2 inspected one of my more recent pictures and said with the utmost turn of the nose, “Mom, that’s so hipster.”


Without sounding ignorant, because really, when I started CozeySL, it was just me, my avatar, a lot of Second Life shopping, and a 500+ word count…I asked her what the truck she was on about?

A google search will yield you several examples of this not so new trend and you’ll spot right away the inspiration behind many of our favorite Second Life home and garden designers.



It seems like this trend is more associated with the pieces you add to your decor rather than an actual style. OR maybe we just like what we like, and share what we like?

Don’t really know what decor style or label we fall under here at Cozey. Sure I like a well thought out living room plan, and who doesn’t appreciate a well ‘meshed’ end table? But at the end of the day, I’d rather be surrounded by homey comfort than all the finery you can find on a flimsy magazine cover.

On second thought, how about we start a new ‘thing’ and call it, “Elegant Clutter” ?

Whatever style you find your inner Susy home-maker gravitating to be it Shabby Chic, Modern Eclectic, Contemporary, Classic, English Country, Vintage, French Country, or my favorite, “No rhyme no reason”,  there will never be a shortage of the many things you can do with quality content.

See this way, you’re free to just be you, no labels, no unrealistic expectations. Just you and what you like! Take that DD2!

Thank you for stopping by and if you’ve made it this far down HUGE kudos my fellow lurker.
