I’ve been thinking quite a bit about decorating trends lately. The topic really hit me when I read this post on Design Sponge several weeks ago. I like to keep up with trends, but I’m generally not obsessed with trends. And when it comes to my own home, I pretty much make up my own rules, and I like what I like, regardless of whether or not it’s trendy.
But for some reason, that post really played games with my head.
Ever since then, there’s been this annoying, nagging little voice in my head every time I look at my kitchen wall that tells me perhaps I need to find something else for that wall.
I really hate that nagging voice, because you know what? I like my birds!! People can say that birds are overdone…that this trend needs to go away…that birds are soooooo last year. It doesn’t matter. I like them, and they’re staying.
I really do get irritated at myself for allowing that video and that post (and the comments) worm their way into my head like that, because I’m generally not like that.
So that’s why the topic of trends has been on my mind so much the last few weeks. Where do you stand on the topic of design trends? Are you they type who has to rush out and get the latest and greatest and be sure it’s incorporated into your home? Do you even know what the latest trends are?
