Are you looking at your room, wondering if it's still as in style as you think? Wondering if it's time for an update? Let's take a look at some of the trends in home design that are fading or already dated. Warning: You may not like what you're about to read.
It's almost universally accepted that chevron-print-everything has come to pass. Its popularity peaked several years ago and quickly overtook every retail store. It's done. Let it die.
Chalkboard everything is on its way out. Yes, they are functional. And some designers have found very clever, stylish ways to display them. But their peak has come and gone.
Instructional signs and many other types of word art. Original art is an exception to the rule. This was a clever design idea, but it's been watered down, mass produced and placed on every wall and shelf in the suburbs. They're even on tea towels.
Taxidermy crafts like animal heads and antlers were a very short-lived trend that took many by surprise. Who would've thought that so many skulls would adorn the walls of homes?
Wall decals, especially the ones with words, have come to an end. Kids rooms may be an exception, so long as they are well made and proportionate to the wall.
Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe portraiture. These lovely ladies have been printed on everything from posters to pillows and even tshirts. Their beauty will never die, but it's time to remove them from home décor.
