IT'S no secret that trends quickly come and go -- designers and furniture moguls are always innovating the way we style our homes. While we're always excited to experiment with whatever is new and upcoming, there are also some things that we aren't ready to let go of just yet. Here are a few fads we wish would come back in style:
1. Sunken Living Rooms
There's nothing cozier than a conversation pit right in the middle of your space! Thankfully, it's easy to bring it back. If you aren't willing to go the renovation route, you can go for a DIY approach by layering plywood to create an illusion of raised space.
2. Nautical Style
They say anchors and sailor's ropes don't belong in the living room --maybe that's true, but that doesn't mean you have to ditch tropical decor entirely. Relive the beach vibe with a blue and white color palette with a few driftwood accents.
3. Colorful Kitchens
Don't get us wrong, black and white kitchens with granite countertops are stunning -- but, you can't discount a farmhouse-inspired cooking corner, too. The vintage details and pastel colors can give your home undeniable charm at a glance.
4. Monochrome Décor
For a lot of people, one-hue wonder homes may be a thing of the past. However, with the right mix of different tones and textures, it can look fresh and modern. Best part? You no longer have to worry about pairing colors together.
5. Gallery Walls
With minimalism taking over homes, some might say having a gallery wall is too much but we think otherwise! Whether you like to display photos of your family or original artwork, a photo wall aids in giving your home a character boost, regardless of size.
