I try really hard to steer clear of trendy things. There are a few things that I am seeing more and more that appear to be trendy yet have always been around.
I am not speaking of fashion that have "come back" like mid-century modern. Iconic or not there was a period where it was pretty uncool to be sporting a Broyhill Brasilia piece.
The ubiquitous blue and white porcelain is the first non-trendy trend that comes to mind. It really works in so many decorating styles and has been around (in the West) for hundreds of years.
It was never really out.
Equestrian themed fashion is easier to find lately but the hunt country interior has really never left.
The traditional and masculine style is one of my favorite.
The third trend that isn't, is Chinoiserie. It may seem redundant but the blue and white porcelain is sometimes just blue and white without a Chinois theme.
We certainly see a lot of this stylized Eastern look but it is a historically significant style that has never been gauche.
As I was hunting for photos for this post, it became apparent that all three popular and classic looks work well together.
