5 hot home decor items that are everywhere right now

Do you ever feel like you’re seeing the same decor pieces over and over? Yeah, I do too. Some evenings I scroll through Pinterest or Instagram and get confused thinking I’m looking at the same picture repeatedly, only to realize that some of the homes I’m checking out are just decorated *that* similarly.  And that’s not necessarily a bad thing — sometimes the item is so good it deserves its popularity. Here are five items that seem to keep popping up everywhere I turn:

1) That rug. That one Moroccan rug.

Oh you know the rug I’m talking about.

It is absolutely ubiquitous. I say that with all possible respect — in fact I plan on buying it after we move.

After all, as far as I can tell, it might be the only rug there is right now.

2) The correct planter if you’re going to have a snake plant (and who are you kidding, of course you’re going to have a snake plant)

Absolutely the correct choice for the hottest must-have plant (snake plant) in the hottest category of must-have plants (succulents).

3) Replica Eames shell chairs.

This one speaks for itself. Since their 1950 debut by American powerhouse designer couple Ray and Charles Eames, they’ve never really gone out of popularity. But right now they are *the* hot dining chair. And really, with a sleek and simple design like this, when is it ever a bad choice?

5) Hanging chairs

I can’t help it, I’m admittedly in love with this one. I am scheming how many hanging chairs I’m allowed to have in my new house.

We’ll see if I can get the husband on board with one, for starters. But seriously, can’t you just see your kids chilling and reading all day long in one of these?

Let’s talk about ideas for the dining room.

I haven’t been able to get the picture above out of my mind. It clicked for me so immediately that I decided I’m going to use it as the basis for my dining room decor. The table is gorgeous is it not? The whole photo makes me think of California beaches. It feels breezy and light to me in a decidedly West Coast way. The table is really the lynchpin of the decor here. It’s a live edge table from Los Angeles-based retailer HD Buttercup. I think it’s perfect (that exact one, and not one similar to it — here’s looking at you Husband), but as it is probably out of my budget at the moment I’ve been asking myself if it’s necessary in order to achieve the feel of this photo. And as much as I love it (and it pains me to say this), after a small period of grieving, I am finding inspiration for other looks that I could one day deem acceptable.

And I know, you’re right, of course you’re right — I have a problem with the Eames style chairs. But no worries, that’s easily solved. They’re happening.

Here’s my board based on my dining room needs: bright, natural-wood colored table, a little color, some live greenery, a pretty but simple buffet, and of course, the white Eames chairs:
