I guess from now on when I want to say “Nope” to someone with a face that says “Really??!,” I will just link to this page. Turned my husband into nope meme, not to be confused with a dope fiend.
This is a picture of the spouse Bill when we visited the Houston Modern Market this weekend. I’m not sure you want a gigantic mod sign saying “NOPE” in your house or place of business. Think if there’s a Feng Shui rule on enormous signs, this one would bring too much negative energy.
I didn’t end up buying anything at the market this year, but like last year, I find it inspirational. Think my goals these days involve buying less, getting rid of things I don’t love so I can more easily find the things I do. Living simply. Like supporting the Houston Modern Market because part of the proceeds go to Houston Mod.
It used to be a challenge to get people to appreciate modern architecture and design, but I think every since the TV show Mad Men, it’s been sneaking up on people. For sure, the prices have gone up. Check out this great article from the The Mid-Century Modernist blog entitled, “‘Mad Men’ Furniture: Don Draper’s Office.”
It’s amazing how much mid century you see in the set design of commercials trying to make products look cool. I usually like the houses in car commercials better than the cars.
