The other day I saw an article from HGTV titled, The Most Controversial Design Trends Ever. I figured I already knew what most of them were, but wanted to see what they had to say about it and how much of it I was guilty of.
Here's how I did.
Guilty. There's one on the yellow pillow and two perched on top of the mirror in the hall. And I just remembered there's even one on my blog.
Guilty. Looks like I'm not off to a very good start so far.
So... here's another one I'm guilty of.

Well crap. Guilty again. On a side note, this is a bad picture of him, he is looking gooood lately! And, still alive. Up top!!!
Son of a... Guilty.
Got excited. Thought I finally had a win, but no. Guilty.
One on the wall. One in the window. Ugh. Guilty.
Although they're currently not up in my house, I already have some I'm itching to put up in the new place. So technically, guilty.

Awesome. I just ordered some big ones for Sam's birthday next month.
Oh come on! I was going to do this in the pantry in the new place. Sad face.
I could go on and on, and at the rate I'm at would be guilty of all of them. At first I was slightly bummed to see that I'm so easily swayed by trends. But the more I think about it, I really don't care. It's not like every corner of my home is covered in chevron nor do I have birds staring at me at every turn. What I do have makes me happy and I want to be surrounded by happy things in my home. I'm guilty, so be it!
How do you guys feel about these design trends? Are you guilty? Are you so over some of them you could scream if you saw it done again? It's ok, you won't hurt my feelings ;)
