We weren’t sure if it actually becoming a popular style or just an Instagram fad. Then we checked Snapchat…one of the main stories of the day featured grey ombre hair.
Then we looked up, and the chef had slicked up grey ombre hair. What are the chances! 😮
So now I’ve been using Instagram to figure out home decor trends, and I wanted to share some!
1. Garden stools
Oh my goodness, garden stools are suddenly everywhere! And I don’t mind, because they’re so pretty! I love the ones I’ve found with detailed patterns and uncommon colors.
2. Diamond-patterned rugs
This is a more subtle one, and definitely worth investigating because it feels like it could become a classic. Large, area rugs have been popular for a while, and now diamonds are taking them over!
3. Shiny decor
Whether it’s a silver picture frame, a shiny coffee table, or a metallic vase you spray-painted yourself, you can’t go wrong with shiny decor. It’s all over the place! I wonder if this trend has anything to do with gray ombre hair…
4. Egg chairs
This one applies more to home offices, but I’ve seen it in some dining rooms and living rooms too. These chairs aren’t new; they’ve just been popping up in unexpected places more frequently than usual.
5. Tufted furniture
Tufted dining chairs, tufted headboards, tufted coffee tables…I’ve been seeing it all for the past few months. It’s not for everyone — one of my friends just hates tufted everything, but I happen to think it’s an elegant look. Definitely worth a consideration.
6. Statement mirrors
Big, bold mirrors have been a thing for some time now. The trend hasn’t died out yet, and I think it’ll be here for a while longer. Mirrors are both pretty and useful…perfect to check your hair in as you’re on your way out the door!
A few other trends get honorable mentions:
- Bouquets of colorful fresh flowers #fridayflowers
- Trays full of accessories coffee tables #thursdaytrays
- Couches covered in throw pillows #thursdaythrowpillows
- Geometric lighting fixtures #lightupmytuesday
I’ll leave you with this bonus photo I just stumbled upon. Notice the garden stool, tufted couch, shiny coffee table and lamps, and five pillows…all in one! The mirror and diamond rug are missing, but there are diamonds in the coffee table and curtains!
