Some people love trying out the latest interior design trends; others avoid them, worrying that they'll quickly become outdated. We think trying out different trends can be a great way to figure out the specific home decor aspects you like.
For example, if you find yourself drawn to both minimalism and Boho decor, two seemingly incompatible styles, consider the specific things they have in common: natural materials such as wood and wicker, earthy and neutral colours, and nature-inspired elements.
Instead of simply following trends, analysing what you like about specific trends is a helpful exercise when deciding how to decorate your home. Even if you realise that you are drawn to two different seemingly incompatible design styles (industrial beach house or rustic Art Deco, anyone?), there's probably an aspiring interior designer who has put together a Pinterest board for that exact combination. These can be a great source of inspiration for your home and a reminder that not every interior design has to be neatly categorised into a single style.
