7 Design Trends We Need to Leave Behind in 2015

Happy New Year everyone! If you've followed along for the past couple of months, you'll know that my husband and I are selling our home next year and moving back to the "burbs".

I'm looking forward to starting a fresh pallet, design-wise, but it got me thinking of some popular design trends I would love to see left behind in 2015:

1. Keep Calm

Stop telling me what to do!


2. Animal Heads Everywhere

I'm looking at you, Target.
It's time to retire the faux antlers.


3. Industrial Decor

Unless you live in an abandoned factory or in a Restoration Hardware catalog, large, rusty pieces of machinery parts don't belong in your home. 


4. Pallet Furniture

Just. Stop.


5. Tiny Houses

Aren't these essentially trailers or mobile homes? Why is this a thing?


6. Shabby Rustic Farmhouse Chic

We are not elderly women who live in vintage farmhouses.
(cough...Joanna Gaines)


7. Crazy Gallery Walls

Keep Calm and Dial It Down.


Are there any design trends you would like to see left behind in 2015?  

I hope that you, your families, and friends have a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2016; Happy New Year everyone!
