When it comes to being “trendy” when decorating your  home, my philosophy is, everything in moderation. Trying to decide on the style of your kitchen or what tile to use in your bathroom can a bit confusing as you look through those Pinterest images, but you really need to ask yourself, “will I still love this in a year?” So today, I’m rounding up some of my favorite decor trends and how to achieve them in your home without having to renovate your space and spend a fortune.

Accent Mirrors: I’ve been seeing this trend everywhere, and I think its is one of the easiest ways to keep your home looking fresh without spending days painting, or racking up the credit card bills on new decor. Adding a fun mirror over a fireplace, in a  hallway, or even a bathroom can really make the space stand out.  This one is a great option in a hallway to break up a gallery wall, and is at the perfect price point.

Gold Accents: This next trend has been around for a little while now, but I don’t see it going anywhere anytime soon.  Gold hardware or lighting fixtures in a kitchen, bathroom or bar area can take any ordinary space and add a bit of glam and sophistication.  If you are skeptical about if this trend is for you, you can take it slow, and try switching out the hardware on a dresser or side table.

Bold Wallpaper: That’s right…wallpaper! I am loving this trend, especially in smaller spaces like a powder room or as an accent on built in shelves.  My favorite part about this trend is that you don’t have to go through the hassle of getting someone to hang the paper (or hang it yourself) because there are a ton of amazing options out there for temporary wall paper, which not only makes it easy to put up, but also makes it easy to take down when you are “over” the look.

Modern Accents: If I had to choose this is probably my favorite trend as of late.  Modern accents can not only be used in modern spaces but can also be mixed in with rustic elements as well as traditional designs.  I have these chairs in my home and love how they look paired with my rustic farm table.  I also have a similar print from minted in my daughters nursery to add a bit of color and fun to her gallery wall. 
Don’t forget to follow me on Pinterest to see my current home decor inspiration and obsessions, and I would love to know what design trend you all are crushing on lately.  Leave your answers in the comments below!
