Okay, this blog is all about outdated (or just weird) home trends. Feel free to comment anything we left out!
Let’s start with those U-Shaped toilet rugs….
Just…. why. Why did anyone think it was a good idea to draw attention to a toilet? Here at ASD we’ve nicknamed these rugs “toilet corrals”.
Below are some more tasteful ways to place a rug under a toilet, if you must.
And while we’re on that note, toilet seat cushions. Aesthetics aside — this is just gross. Don’t do it.

Fabric Window Valances.
There’s really nothing wrong with using fabric on your window treatments, it’s more the valance we’re saying “no” to.
We used taxidermy for our Jackson Hole project, but in moderation and because it was appropriate for the theme. If you’re looking for a more modern way to go about the taxidermy look, we recommend something more like this…
Pepto-Bismol Pink. Pantone named “Rose Quartz” the Color of The Year in 2016, but let’s be honest, they should’ve just called it Pepto-Bismol.
For whatever reason, this color really caught on. I have one word it…. YEESH.
If you’re a fan of pink, we recommend going with a “less is more” approach. We also recommend going with a toned-down Pepto-Bismol, or a shade that’s a little rosier.. This color just has an elegance about it that *nausea, heartburn, indigestine..* doesn’t.
I could go on forever about decorating faux pas, but I’ve got some real designing to do. I’d love to hear what you think we should leave behind in 2017!
