Apartment Therapy had a really interesting post today. (click HERE) They’ve highlighted as above, a few decorating trends and have asked if you follow trends yourself.
(thank-you reader Susan Birk for letting me know!)
I gasped AND smiled when I noticed I was in the lineup. (thanks AP!) YOU GUYS know I don’t follow other decorating trends but rather strike out on my own. But what category do you land in when suddenly what you do has become the hottest trend?

Decorating with reclaimed finds came out of complete necessity in order to be able to afford to furnish my home. I don’t remember if it was hot property or not as I wasn’t a blog reader at the time. I just remember watching Trading Spaces. And mostly gasping at the outlandish things they applied to walls. I certainly didn’t copy the hay episode.
I just grew into eclectic because that’s all I could afford. And now I’m trendy. Who knew?
Think pallets will go ‘out of style’? How about signs all over your home or made into furniture? And do I even care?
I don’t remember pallets or signs or even junk being the ‘hot’ thing when I started using them. But that wouldn’t have swayed me regardless. I like what I like and when I get tired of what I like, I’ll change it and invent something new.
Trust me when I say, when I need a new decor piece, I simply walk down into the garage and snoop around in the heap of tools. How trendy is that!

Not sure how I feel about being a non intentional trend decorator.
What what else CAN you do when something you do becomes popular?
What’s your take?
Do you yourself follow trends or attempt to strike out on your own?
