Always Include the Trends
If you're looking through a magazine for decorating ideas, you're bound to become influenced by the current trends. There's nothing wrong with this, but choosing what's hot at the moment may not ultimately belie your true style. Plus, trends come and go, so decorating around them isn't the best strategy if you want a look that lasts. If you must jump on the trend bandwagon, do it in small ways like pillows, rugs and curtains that can easily be changed out when it falls out of fashion favor.
