Distracting Interior Trends to Avoid, According to Designers

Trends can be great fun, or they can pull us off track. When designing your home (or a client’s, if you’re a design talent), heed the experts: Choose what you love, and you’ll love what you choose. Make your home unique rather than mainstream. Pick colors, textures, and materials that speak to you, and they’re sure to stay in style.

Erica Evensen of Austin’s Evensen Design agrees. “We always encourage clients to buy pieces that resonate with them and not to buy items to simply fill the home,” she says. “Your interiors should be a reflection of your personality, with things you love curated over time.”
