Open House: What Trends Have You Bought Into?

Some trends are so pervasive, you don't know how transient they'll be until they're "over" — and all over your home. I fall hard and fast for lots of décor trends. But I'm such a skeptical and prohibitive shopper, I usually don't make the mistake of buying things that will be "out" in a few months. I will cop to buying into a few fleeting trends, such as wall decals and lace.

Other trends I think have enough staying power to invest in. For instance, I wrote about ikat as a trend nearly two years ago, and I think it looks as chic and relevant, yet classic, today as it did then. My interior designer aunt and mother used four ikat pillows in the sitting room of one of their clients, and though they were probably on my wish list a couple years ago, I still totally covet them. I think that says something; even if only, "buy what you love." Tell me: What trends have you bought into? Any trendy items you still love? Any headed for the donation center?

wooden deer heads - such a great compromise for my husband and I. He wanted a real dear head (it's so common up here in the Upper Mid West), but we were able to agree on a deer head from Roost's line, and a pair of carved wooden antlers. Whew.

Owls! I have a few small owl accents, including some cute trivets, that I still love.
