1. Floral Wallpaper

I always wanted to decorate with wallpaper but never did...so many prints to choose from. I am in on this one. I think wallpaper is amazing!

2.  Light Wood Floors

Dark is out and light floors are back. I like it; lightens everything up and you don't see dirt! That's why I did not buy a white dog. I did not want my dog to show dirt hence he could stay dirtier longer. Its the reverse though of the floors but you get what i'm saying!

3.  Japanese/Zen/Vibe

Ok so my ex husband is Japanese so I've always been drawn towards all things Japanese ;) I've always decorated with a Japanese flair although I am anything but zen (so my friends would say). The Japanese style of decorating is really about clean lines and minimalisn. Add a touch of the deep red used in Japanese prints and art. Makes any room pop in a zen-like way.

4. Track Lighting

I would go either very industrial looking or very thin and chic looking. I could get into this!

5.  Wall-to Wall Carpet

Okay..we buying this? Carpet of course feels so great; much better than wood floors lets face it. And it does look great but after a while it kind of starts to feel dirty no matter how much you clean it. And if you have pets..and allergies..well then you hate it and your mom for having it installed . But hey...I bet landlords will love it!

6. White Kitchens

White never left for me! I sold my house in 2015 with a white kitchen that I loved and it had white appliances! I bet the new homeowners love me now! Bye Bye stainless..we won't miss trying to clean you!

7. Open Shelving

Hmmmm..didn't know this design trend ever left but now that I think about it I guess it did. If you have nice things to showcase I love the look. Could they possibly be used for bookshelves? Does anyone have books? Nope..can't be used as bookshelves.

8. Pastels

I never got into pastels although my daughter does love light purple and I am thinking of painting my bedroom wall light blue so I guess I do like pastels. Learned something new about myself today!

9. Skirted Tables

My best friend is from Vermont; wait till I tell her skirted tables have come back. Of course for her and her family they never left. Full table skirts are apparently very on trend. I will have to see how people have made this design element work...I will be looking through design magazines later today.

10. Brass Hardware and Fixtures

So this design trend is a bit harder to accept but I am meditating over it and yes I can like this again. Today's brass finish is less shiny and more modern in design. So again, out with the polished silver and in with what used to be considered "tacky. Get ready to swap out for your new brass drawer pulls, faucets, and door knobs!

11. Farmhouse Chic

Again, my best friend in Vermont will be very  happy to hear the farm house that she lives in is in! Very in!  All your plaids, ruffles, and decorative farm animals can all be taken up from the basement and placed in  your Japanese/Zen family room! 

Now look who's Trendy...that's right...me (oh yea)
