  • 1. Keep Calm and Just Don’t...
The Keep Calm and “blank” is over. While it comes from a classic place in history (being WWII), I don’t think anyone even knows that anymore. The posters, the T shirts, the mugs, the coozies, it’s all done!

  • 2. Burlap Anything
Did someone say boring? Oh, you said burlap. It’s just this weird line between barn style or ragged cabin. Go with a solid or a checkered pattern if you’re in it for the long run.

  • Carpet in the bathroom died out in the 70s. If you need to get with the times here, updates to tile or linoleum aren’t cheap, but they are durable, long lasting and easier to clean!

  • 4. Putting a Bird On It
Bird decor really did take the hipster route. It went from elite to overdone in only seconds after the Portlandia episode.

  • 5. WALLPAPER
This one is probably going to ding a lot of people, but the décor reality of 2015 is that printed patterns are best saved for accents like pillows and blankets. Solid wall colors are in these days. Plus, a solid paint is also much easier to update, as well.

  • Fake Plants
We’re not saying your friends will 100% for sure judge you for populating your house with plastic imposter plants, but they’ll probably judge you. Go for some real houseplants with real health benefits.

  • 7. A Counter That’s Covered with Photos
The whole “piano top full of Christmas cards and holiday photos” should be seasonal at best. If you want to display some family photos, try a gallery wall of frames with different sized photographs (like this one shown here). It’s baroque and hip.

  • Chairs that look good but feel like crap.
Those half domes or spin tops made a mini-comeback (their heyday was in the 60s), but they’re no longer necessary for a “cool” basement. We should consider ourselves lucky, those things were the worst to sit in.

  • Pillow Overload
Everything in moderation, folks. An early 2000s trend that I’m never sure I liked has officially graduated to all the weird aunt’s guest rooms.

  • Fake taxidermy 
This trend explosion started on Etsy and then consumed the home décor world. From paper, puzzle-like taxidermy to teal painted antlers, everyone wants some Western inspired mammalian on their walls.

  • 11. Wall Decals
At least this one is a quick fix, right? Remove those suckers and consider a new paint color

  • Gaudy chandeliers
 Chandeliers are rarely the center of attention these days. Occasionally in an open foyer you can get away with it. But in a dining room or living room, keep the focus on a classic table.

  • 13. Furniture Sets
Your home is a way to display your style and creativity. Don’t squelch your individual spirit by making every room the spitting image of an IKEA catalogue! Even if you want to stay with the same brand, get a little funky and mix up the colors.

  • Pushing All the Furniture Against the Wall
When everything is pushed against the wall, your company is spread out. Try setting up small, intimate sitting spaces and having multiple nooks per room.
