I know that title sounds a bit strange, but I've been thinking about "style" and "taste" lately, because I feel like I have two very opposite "tastes." I wonder if there is a fusion of the two, and what it would look like.
But anyway, what I'm talking about is the difference between a more vintage, neutral color palette vs. a more bright color palette that follows a more Japanese aesthetic. I have a long list of favorite blogs and they vary across style and taste, but what I notice most, is that a lot of blogs tend to stick to one style and taste. Think the difference between "Hello Sandwich" vs. "Oh Hello Friend." I absolutely LOVE both blogs, as I am sure many of you are also fans of both (and what a coincidence that two of my favorite blogs have the word 'hello' in the blog title... must be something about that word). But which style I gravitate towards more, I don't know. So whenever I package a gift or make a card, I tend to think about the personal style of my friend and which one she would gravitate towards more. However, it tends to make blogging a bit harder since I can't seem to focus the style of this blog. Perhaps it's just a matter of creating a third way. Maybe something I should consider experimenting with.
But until I figure it out, I have made a stack of birthday cards to have on hand that reflect varying styles. It's always nice to have something on hand and ready to give out. Saves on time, and you are ready if anything comes up.
This is what I mean when I say "airmail vintage"
Perhaps this is slightly a fusion of the two. Although it looks to lean towards airmail vintage (w/ the pastel and neutral colors).
Pop of color Kawaii - I love the colorful neon and cute kawaii touch
Which style do you gravitate more towards? Or do you find yourself torn in the middle like me? Or maybe somewhere in the middle?
