As soon as something’s everywhere, you don’t want to see it anymore. (Such is the agony and ecstasy of trends.) To that end, get ready to say goodbye to these five overplayed home decor additions in the new year. Read ’em and weep, guys.
We’re all for ample interior greenery, but the modern-boho “Jungalow” aesthetic (think: hanging plants everywhere, air succulents tacked to the walls, etc.) is looking pretty tired these days.

Beni Ourain Rugs
Aka those fuzzy white Moroccan rugs with zigzags that you’ve been seeing everywhere for the past few years. Nowadays, spotting one of these babies in a living room is about as predictable as stainless in the kitchen.
