What's Hot and What's Not

It wasn't that long ago when avocado-hued kitchen appliances were all the rage; shortly following, you could find a Papasan chair in practically every room in the country. Thankfully, these trends have come and gone. What's hot today may be a "I can't believe we did that" memory tomorrow.

Here are some home decorating trends that are on the way in, and some that are beginning to fade.
* Looks that will floor you - the natural beauty of real hardwood or stone floors are in; laminate wood and bamboo floors have been found to warp and not wear as well, so they are falling out of favor. Wall-to-wall carpeting is still out.
* Heavy metal - the days of wiping smudges from stainless steel are over. The new metals in home decor are warm-toned bronze and copper for hardware, plumbing and light fixtures, even some small appliances. The mirror finish of chrome is making a comeback in decorative accessories.
* Lighter touch - gone are overstuffed or ornate furnishings. Today's trendy homeowner opts for more streamline looks.

If you can't part with your favorite "outdated" piece, don't fret. The mix-and-match, eclectic look is also widely popular now. Simply pair it with an modern piece for a quick update.
