Design Trends to Avoid!
Trends come and go. Some we wish would go a little quicker. Here is a list of some things we see in homes that need to be retired.

4. Bold Graphic Wallpaper
You know the one. Huge palm leaves on that one wall. Enough already.
5. Gray Walls
Neutral colors are always in vogue, but gray enjoyed a fast and furious run over the last few years. Its time is up as it has become overplayed.
6. Gallery Walls
It's the rare person who can even hang 20 photos on a wall and make them look somewhat put together and not have them crooked. Lucky you, this trend is going away, so you don't have to try!
