Hi.. Happy Wednesday! I have a fun trend watch for you today! Have you all seen the fun wood grain patterns popping up in home decor lately? I absolutely love it in small doses. I love the idea of adding a faux bois tray or rug to a room for a pop of rustic pattern. What do you thinking? Love~hate???

Trends.. How do you all feel about them? Do you try & keep up with the trends in fashion or home decor? I try & stay on top of the new trends, but I don’t always grab a hold of them! I like the things I like, but I definitely don’t sway my decor based on the latest & greatest. If I like a particular new trend, I might add a few accessories or pieces to my existing decor. For example, I still love chevron & ikat and have added those patterns in small doses around our home. How do you integrate new trendy pieces? Do tell…
I’ve been loving faux bois for a while now. I definitely think small doses of it is best (or if it’s a large rug, tone on tone colors rather than contrasting colors). I love adding a current trend somewhere in my home, but prefer to keep it to easily replaceable items (like throw pillows). I did break that rule when I ordered a chevron rug for our living room, but I went with tan and off-white, so it’s very tone on tone, and the 9×11 cost only $65 (I should have ordered more for that price!). So even if I only like it for a year or two, it’s not a big investment.
I LOVE faux bois. I remember Martha Stewart Living featuring it a few years ago and I fell in love then. I handle trends similar to you — I want to know about them, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to purchase them. If I do purchase a trend, it will either be a super inexpensive item that I won’t be sad to lose after a year, or if I really love something I’ll make a little bit of an investment and it will stay long past the trend dies. But that’s okay, because I love it 🙂

Love this! It’s always fun to incorporate the newest trend (if I like it), but I think it’s more fun to stay outside the box and experiment a little! 🙂
