So what does it mean to be “trendy”, or “in-style”? And how important is it?
Truthfully, it isn’t. Some may disagree with me, and that is totally fine! But I personally think there is too much stress about staying on-trend, and buying what is in style. This can get quite costly for you, and in the end is not very good for the environment. If we are constantly buying things for our home to stay on-trend, that means we are having to send what we are replacing out.
My solution, buy what makes you happy. Create a style for yourself. In the end, you are going to be the one living with it and looking at it every day. Nobody will actually be coming into your home, pointing at your furniture and being like “that is so not in style”. And if they do, then you don’t have to let them visit anymore. You don’t need that negativity in your life. Plain and simple, Our happiness is what is in-style, loving our home is what is on-trend.
So if you want the polka dot table lamp, or the pink gorilla statue, get it. Because for as long as that makes you happy, it will never be out of style.
