It's no secret that trends quickly come and go—designers and furniture moguls are always innovating the way we style our homes. While we're always excited to experiment with whatever is new and upcoming, there are also some things that we aren't ready to let go of just yet. Here are a few fads we wish would come back in style:


1. Sunken Living Rooms

There's nothing more cozy than a conversation pit right in the middle of your space! Thankfully, it's easy to bring it back. If you aren't willing to go the renovation route, you can go for a DIY approach by layering plywood to create an illusion of raised space. 


2. Nautical Style

3. Colorful Kitchens

Don't get us wrong, black and white kitchens with granite countertops are stunning—but, you can't discount a farmhouse-inspired cooking corner, too. The vintage details and pastel colors can give your home undeniable charm at a glance. 


4. Monochrome Decor

For a lot of people, one-hue wonder homes may be a thing of the past. However, with the right mix of different tones and textures, it can look fresh and modern. Best part? You no longer have to worry about pairing colors together.
