Perhaps there was some sort of huge out of control farm fire that resulted in everyone in the surrounding area feeling rather relaxed, lethargic...and hungry. And they all liked it?
Now you're probably wondering how spliff talk is relevant to design trends. My bewilderment about the first weed smoker is EXACTLY how I feel about the Cameroon Juju Hat craze.

Who was the first person to put this hat on a wall and call it decor? And who saw it and copied it? Because it is EVERYWHERE now.

And what does it say about me that more than half the images used in this post come directly from my personal inspiration file? Things that make you go "hmmmm".

I love that the hat is a simple way to add colour and texture to a space. What I don't love? The price.
Unfortunately these little beauties start at about £265. If not for that one little fact I would have jumped all over this bandwagon ages ago.
My other options? Well there is the fabulous Abigail Ahern Rasta Floor Cushion which looks similar...
...Except at £628 for the small size, it is too, ever so slightly out of my budget.

I suppose I will just have to admire for now. However if you like this trend and you're not as lazy as I am, there is a great DIY tutorial here, so you can make your own on the cheap!
And speaking of DIY, I have yet to start my Pinterest Challenge project. Yikes.
