An important thing to remember about interior design is that trends come and go! This coupled with the fact that furniture (even lightly used) has such terrible resale value makes me cautious when it comes to interior design trends. So while I love seeing and appreciating all of the latest trends, I also try to make sure that I am designing my space with my own style, rather than trying to keep up with trends that come and go. Now if you have the cash to continuously redesign your space and you like to change things up often, that is a whole different story! In short design with what works for you because loving your home is more important than being up to date.
