I am gonna guess that you guys are less addicted to design-blog-land than I (my addiction is unhealthy so I am hoping you lead a more balanced life) but maybe you are in the same rehab-worthy boat. Either way you may have seen several "trends-we-hate" posts out there. I always read them and partly agree, partly disagree. I think in the blog age great rooms spark trends faster than you can say DIY, and then the resulting photos are circulated so quickly, and so often, that we get tired of them much faster than we would normally. And, like fashion, some trends just plain don't work with your space(/ass), while other trends are perfect for you, and will be when they are no longer trendy. So a trend and its application is often a matter of personal choice and style.
That all being said, I just came across this Trend-Hate post on My Favourite and My Best, and had to laugh my head off. The trends are all there - chalkboard paint, DIY, chevrons, greek keys, hipster moustaches at weddings - but her take on them is so vehement it had to make me laugh. I don't know if I love her or am afraid of her. I don't think I have seen the f-word so many times on one blog. Awesome.
She has another subsequent post which is also worth reading, as are many of the comments. So, what is your take on design trend hate? And/or liberal swearing in blog posts? :)
