I am the kind of person who can eat the same thing for lunch every day, but I can't seem to live with the same decor for more than a couple years. I am constantly making slight adjustments, getting tired of things, moving stuff around. My house is like a painting that is never quite perfect. 

But there are some things I will never tire of. I don't necessarily have them all in my home, but they are the things I always seem to land on when looking for inspiration. Some of them are trendy, some of them are classic, but they all speak to me. Loud and clear. 

What are the decorating trends that will always have a place in the look book of your heart?
1. Antique Mirrors

They are so French and classic. But they can also be modern and crisp. And they add gleam and shimmer without too much flash.

An antique mirror probably isn't the best for putting on make up, but at least italways looks great.

2. Live-Edge Wood

OK, I'll say it: There is something downright sexy about live-edge wood. It's so organic and flowing, so uninhibited. Swoon.

A piece of live-edge wood softens a stark modern room with just the right amount of nature and warmth.
Is it hot in here?
3. Walls of Books

With the exception of my family, I love books more than anything in the world, and a wall of books makes me feel instantly at home and filled with pleasant anticipation. Plus, provided it doesn't get too crazily overstuffed, a floor-to-ceiling bookshelf always looks great (and overstuffed can be a look too).

This bookshelf adds just the right amount of texture and color to this white room.
An over-the-door bookshelf makes me especially happy. Beauty and brains — what more could you ask for?

4. Wallpapered Accent Walls

I am a pattern girl, and nothing adds pattern like a little wallpaper. I love everything about it, including its papery, matte finish.
This wallpapered accent wall completely makes this room. It would be much too big and white without it.
A colorful, eclectic living room just gets better with a little pow of wallpaper.
5. Bright Pink

Hot pink, magenta, rosa Mexicana — whatever you call it, you can't help but look at it. Hot pink draws the eye like no other color. I love it in an otherwise subdued room like this one.
The octopus print and the pink chair are what make this room beautiful. The rest is just standard elegance. Nice, sure, but not amazing.
Bright pink also plays well with others.
6. Apple-Green Finishes

I just painted one wall in our den apple green, and I cannot tell you how cheerful and beautiful it is. It's just a good-mood color. I'm hooked.
Green ceilings are also nice. How much do you love this sunroom?
Stairs. Stairs work too.

7. Colorful Couches

I have so had it up to here with beige and burgundy. White and gray are nice, but what I really love is something bold and bright. Who says the sofa has to fade into the background?
Midcentury modern can be all white and wood, or it can be all white and wood and splashes of amazing, bright, cheerful color. This couch has real personality.
More laid back but still not content to be a wallflower.
The colorful couch to end all colorful couches.

8. Gallery Walls

For people who love pattern and color and art, nothing beats the gallery wall. It combines all three, and it seriously increases your art-collecting abilities.
Some designers say there should be a unifying theme — color or size — but I like an eclectic jumble myself. If it was good enough for Gertrude Stein, it's good enough for me.
eclectic dining room madebygirl
So much personality is encompassed in this single wall.

A Gallery Wall for Every Personality
9. Danish Modern Dining Tables

Here's the thing: They are just classic beauties. And you don't have to have a midcentury modern house for one to fit in. They are elegant simplicity personified.
Go ahead, pair it with country chairs. The Danish modern dining table can take it.
