Trend spotting in the 1800s - Frilandsmuseet aka the Open Air Museum

Remember this summer when I did some Trend spotting in new construction - California 2013 and some more here. That was fun. Let's try that again, but let's go back in time. Waaaaay back. To the 1800s - with some 1700 hundreds thrown in for good measure.

This is of course a post moon lighting as our field trip to the Open Air museum in Denmark which I talked about in my two posts about our recent one month trip to Denmark here and here.

We started out taking a carriage ride around the grounds. This place is huge and all the buildings you see are original old buildings - almost all of them have been shipped here from other parts of Denmark carefully disassembled at their original spot and then reassembled here to be preserved forever.

I spot white painted brick over there. The cobble stone court yard is awesome too. Oh and all the animals... I am going to call them inspiration for all the ceramic animals and what not that is still hanging on for dear life a trend. Right?

Vintage chair and bed ;) How the working people slept on the farms back in the day. Cozy, no? White walls though. They are back in style.

Vintage IKEA kitchen. Ok totally kidding. IKEA is Swedish.. you knew that, right? But check out the floor, more white walls. Beamed ceilings although you can touch them without even standing on your tippy toes. Love the basket there and the wooden container next to it. How about that wooden sink.

I am not going to talk about the cow hid trend right now because that would be tacky. So moooving right along. They are cute, aren't they.

Check out that chevron door and that turquoise. That is Behr's 1800-i-don-t-know color. Isn't it fabulous?

Built-in beds. Love the color too. Valspar's Back-in-the-day-turquoise. Gold accents. Stylin'.

The grocery store. Lot's of vintage crates, knick-knacks and a beamed ceiling. Yum!

Blue enamel ware and a vintage stove and check out the light fixture. I could see Emily Henderson wanting to grab a few items in here...

Now who says the 17 and 18 hundreds can't be stylin?
