Some trends are born to die. Some, like avocado fridges, should never have started in the first place. Many trends, however, will never die. If they speak to you and they make your house look great, don’t think twice about giving in to a “trendy” idea. If you pick from this list, you’ll always love it.
1. Minimalist whites
Minimal white and white-on-white décor is everywhere now. Trendy home décor isn’t complete without at least one white wall and white-on-white design. These minimal, calm designs often make us feel at peace and in control. It’s no surprise that people want to bring this décor idea home to stay. As trendy home ideas go, this one is pretty timeless. Just make sure to add touches of soft contrasts so it doesn’t look sterile, just clean.
2. Succulent plants
Terrariums and tiny potted plants of pretty, perky succulents are common. These plants tend to be more difficult to kill than others, perfect for those of us without a green thumb. Plus, they make every atmosphere look happy and welcoming. It brings a touch of life inside.
3. Mason jars
Need to serve drinks? Mason jars. Need to store spices? Mason jars. Need to make a salad for work? You can see where this is going. Mason jars have a practical, do it yourself vibe that feels straight off Pinterest even if you’re drinking tap water. We’re never, ever, ever giving them up. Sorry, not sorry.
4. Chalk board paint
When you want to look like the ruler of artistic creativity and organization, whip out the chalkboard paint. For best results, apply it to a whole wall. You can pair this with white minimalism to create contrast and tension in a room. This is a great way to offset the harshness of a white wall and décor. The chalkboard paint can also be applied to a wall covering, a cutout, or a poster board if that appeals to you more.
5. Natural wood
Wood adds a touch of richness to any home. While it’s nice to see a large oak table, for example, there are other trendy home ideas that showcase wood a little more naturally. A natural cutting board can class up any kitchen. A bedside table made of a log section is homey, comfortable, and authentic. Enjoy the trend now and the fashion statement the rest of your life.

You can paint them, add designs, or pin postcards and pictures to them to make them unique. Then scatter them about the family room to showcase the vibrancy of the people who live there.
7. Foil slogan posters
Not every foil sign is a winner. You might not need a shiny “Live, Laugh, Love” on your wall. When paired with slogans with a bit of bite, however, these posters take off.
