Have you stopped and taken notice that a few really popular decorative accessories that are popping up in every home décor magazine, on store shelves and in on-line stores.? While I’ve had my eye on these trends for a while and even own a few of these items it wasn’t until my recent magazine de-cluttering marathon that I really noticed how prevalent a selected group of items are in the interior design world. What makes these items so popular and just what are the “it” accessories I’m talking about?
Foo Dogs in every color are a super hot decor trend of late. While they may not be the prettiest accessory, the ceramic dogs are making a splash in every type of room décor, from traditional to modern. I think the attraction is that they are different, have an ethnic flare and make a bold statement. I love these gold dogs at Z Gallerie but if you like a little more color, the next time you’re near a Ross Dress for Less, pop because they are known to have colorful Foo Dogs for cheap!
The Scoppio Sphere is a hot item from Z Gallerie. You can use this piece on tabletops or as a wall décor accent. There is a sense of whimsy that I think draws people to this piece and makes it so popular.
Buddha heads, Buddha statues, Buddha wall décor. Buddha’s are admired not only for their spiritual association but also for their artistic style. The popularity of Buddha is so great that even Walmart has gotten in on the trend.
Not only are Starburst Mirrors becoming a design staple but it is probably one of the most popular DIY projects among DIY bloggers and designers. Starburst mirrors are a wonderful alternative to a round mirror and provide shape and visual interest to a space. I happen to own two starburst mirrors and am glad to say I bought these before the trend was so hot.
Because there are so many different versions of starburst mirrors, I think this is one item that will definitely become a classic. If you’re in the market, Ballard Designs has some of the most popular starburst mirrors on the market.
So, what do you think of these ‘it” accessories? And which is your favorite?
