7 Decor Trends that Do Not Appeal to Me

Popular abstract art is something I have mixed opinions about. Some of them look real lovely, and I would buy one if, only if, I knew the meaning behind it or the inspiration behind it.

Which got me thinking of some popular decorating trends...

After having seen tons of images on blogs and on Pinterest over the past couple of years, I have decided that some of these trends are not for me. They are beautiful by themselves, and probably look great on someone else's home. To each, his/her cup of tea, right!

Simply put, if these were pages in a book, I'd shut it and reach for another one ;-)

1. All Whites or Pastels. Too dainty for my taste. Not even for a little girl's room.

2. Uptight furniture
Thankfully the rug softens up this space
3. Way too craftsy DIY decor
Button embellishments and all
4. Overdoing 'traditional' in a modern apartment. Too much of brass (one in every vignette) for instance. Heavy, carved wooden furniture in small apartments. All just to bring in the desi look.

5. Everything in place. An artistic/aesthetic mess ought to find a place in every room I say.

6. Gold overdose. Gold and copper is definitely in these days. Gold-dipping appears to be the DIY of the year. But this?

7. Awesome eye candy, impractical furniture. The semicircle seater in the pic above, for instance.

What do you think? 
Are there any popular decor trends you beg to disagree with? Eager to know.

(Oh yes, blogging after a short break since I got into a new day job recently. It sure feels good to be back here in my sunny nook! :-)


  1. I detest the all white look too! I like dark colored decor better.

    1. On the same page as you Aarthy :)

    Ah I have the same feeling about the white/pastel look. Its like every American house especially the idea of a young adults room starts with white like there are absolutely no colors or someone forgot to teach them colors :P

    1. Lol.. I hear you! Gets too plain for everyday living

  3. Couldn't agree with you more, Ambika. I hate the all white & match-matchy look, far too hotel-esque. I experimented with dark grey walls and besides smatterings of white, have used colour where I can.

    1. Oh yes and I really like the way you have done up your home Aradhana... its a bold statement of a home.. like I've mentioned on Shalini's post before. Way to go :-)
