CONTEST: MOM, THE HOME STYLE ICON
The timeline of mom's style goes a little something like this: mom dresses awesomely, mom meets guy, mom has you, mom dresses you awesomely, mom renovates kitchen.
Home has always been mom's fashion surrogate. I'm having that stitched on a pillow this very minute. [Faster you ingrate pillow stitchers!] It's just a fact: having pre-teen kids triggers interior decoration. Look it up, scienceheads.
So in honor of summer, when home renovations and mom's creative decorating side flourish, MMTSI is doing a giveaway with CNS Stores. We're turning an eye towards our mothers' home fashion sense.
Send me vintage photos of your mom next to her outrageous furniture. Anything from an old Hollywood chaise, to a Bauhaus vanity, from a Tiffany lamp to suburban 70's wallpaper (thanks to Mrs Davisson, above). You can email to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet to @momstyleicons.
I'll post the best shots and pick a winner to receive $80 from CNS mega-furniture outlet. (see terms and conditions here). If you've got a heart, you'll give the prize to mom.
