Don’t Go Chasing Home Décor Trends

Today on Don’t Go Chasing Home Décor Trends, I’m clarifying why I didn’t talk about all those costly trends. Trends that lead to major purchases and the “one thing leads to another” trends.

This week, I had a moment where I got exited about all the things I wanted to do in my kitchen, mostly based on some latest trends.

I just love the light fixtures & faucet that Micky at Cottage on Main St. chose in her recent remodel. Micky is renovating a old house and I’m loving all her choices.

I am loving all the antique brass hardware, light fixtures and faucets. It’s a trend that I’m tempted to chase for sure.

The Lights belong to Chrissy at Chrissy Marie Blog

I’m actually drooling over some of these pieces and have googled where I can purchase these latest trends.

I’ve saved the Instagram photo’s and Pinned all the Pinterest Inspiration I can find.

I love all this especially, the white stove with the brass accents. So well done by Divvy House
Those drawer pulls and faucet from Anna at Purely Chic Home had me drooling.

Reality Check!!!!

Then it dawned on me! What am I thinking??????

One thing leads to another and I would have to change so many things to achieve this trend.

Now if you are remodeling or have plenty of money, I say go for it!! If I was building today, I’d definitely be using a lot of these trending fixtures. But I’m not, and if you’re budget minded as well, read on.

First, you have to realize that trends come and go, therefore this TO shall pass!

When I finally settled down and I realized that you don’t have to chase all the trends. If you try to do so, it will definitely be an adventure, however, you may be broke. LOL

Here’s My Decision

Maybe I’ll paint my island in a new trending color and when it’s no longer popular, I can paint it the next trend.

The black hardware and authentic vintage light fixtures are timeless. Am I right?

See, I’m good at convincing myself that I don’t need to spend all that money.

I’ll keep looking for the trends in thrift stores, like this lamp. I transformed this one into one of the trending style lamps for a fraction of the cost. You can see the details here.

Maybe some new pillows and throw blankets would satisfy the urge to update!

In addition, I plan to update my bedding this Spring! The Oliva Ruffled Quilt was the #1 readers choice.

However, the Reversible Floral Doylestown Quilt was a close second choice.

So stay tuned for all the exciting, trending and inexpensive changes coming to the Ponds Farmhouse this spring.

The #1 Way to keep your Home Decor on Trend

PAINT – You can update your front door, your light fixtures, your mirrors, and your home accessories. If I see a new trend in mirror colors, most likely I’ll be painting my existing mirror frame. Most of my mirrors have several coats of paint. LOL

I hope these Home Décor Trend ideas will help you to update your home without spending a fortunate this year. If you missed some of the must have trends in accessories, you can see it here.

I love all of the inspiration from your blog and IG account. Trends do come and go so I try to get by with a paint job most of the time. We are redoing our kitchen so I will definitely be researching hardware and sink fixtures. Thanks for the inspiration

Your post is such a good reminder. I think it is always a good idea to shop your own house for new looks, too. You never know what "trendy" items you may have right there in your own home! I always try to stick to classics and stay away from the trends!

Chloe, That's a good plan. It's so easy to over spend when it's not necessary.
