Do any of you remember when HGTV informed us a couple years ago that faux plants were a decorating “no-no” ? I just laughed…
and kept on using my faux plants and flowers.
I’m always fascinated to read articles about which trends are “hot” … or “not”. It makes me wonder WHO decides whether a decorating (or fashion) trend is “in” … or “out.”
According to The Nest editors, it’s time to reconsider these hot, recent decorating trends.
Trend #1: Antlers
Trend #2: Taxidermy
(which apparently includes skins used for rugs, pillows etc., as well as vintage taxidermy pieces. )
Would you display something “stuffed” under the ever-so-popular cloche?
Trend #3: Inspirational Sayings
Trend #4: Decorative Buddha Sculptures
Trend #5: Ghost Chairs
(I have to admit, I had no idea that these Moroccan inspired hassocks were called “poufs.”
Trend #7: Accent Walls
Trend #8: Boutique Hotel Chic
Trend #9: Black Chalkboard Paint
If you are curious why they think you should skip these trends, you can read the entire article here.
What do you think?
Do these trends get a “thumbs up” …
or a “thumbs down” ?
Are there any other decorating trends you think have been over-used?
