I am not an interior decorator, I don’t even play one on TV. I only decorate my home, and that is minimal…as in I get rid of things each year, we don’t paint the walls, and I certainly don’t have the luxury of buying decorative objects. We’re too utilitarian, and we move a lot.
But I am a writer, and writers do a lot of reading. Something that has been populating my feeds lately have been home decor trends. An obviously popular topic in the beginning of a year, but interesting regardless. I usually click and peek to see if avocado green ovens are coming back. (I don’t love them, I just admire how the 1970s was so in love with avocado green and harvest gold that they had to put it on EVERYTHING. Besides, ’70s Terrazzo is coming back, so why not green ovens?)

Out: Pineapple prints, In: Yellow
Finally. I didn’t like the pineapple fad when it started and I began to loathe it when “be a pineapple; stand tall and wear a crown but be sweet inside” (or similar) sayings began to surface. It felt like folks were trying real hard to justify their pineapple…everything.
Out: Quotes on walls
One of the first posts I read said that quotes on walls are on the way out. I was so happy to read that because I am so tired of seeing them. When I see a kitchen sign that says “EAT” I silently reply don’t tell me what to do. When I see signs elsewhere in a home declaring “Family” or “Love” I want to make counter signs in black that read “Loneliness” and “Distrust.” I just never understood the initial appeal #sorrynotsorry
Out: Gallery walls, In: Large scale art
Good thing the Jupiter house already loves tapestries. It’s kind of nice when what I already love becomes mainstream. When large scale pieces fall back into some unpopular zone, I will be here…adding to my collection with those inevitable closeout sales. Mwahaha.
Out: White on white, In: Deep naturals
No more white on white? Too bad. I love it. Mister Jupiter and I both enjoy high-gloss-white everything, so we’re going to keep it where we can. It makes small rooms feel large, and empty shelves feel spacious (but not empty).
Out: Tapered or chunky furniture legs, In: thin metal supports
Another win for minimalism! We already have a desk that fits this to a T, but that doesn’t matter. What matters is that if it is in style, then it will be easier for me to find and buy. Maybe this will be the year that I finally buy some accent tables and get my small lamps off the floor (crossing fingers!)
