Like fashion, we see definite trends come and go with home decor as well, which doesn’t always make real sense to spend a fortune on a piece of furniture or a simple accessory that will date within a year.

From the “it” colour to the must-have vase there are so many aspects to consider when updating your home.

One year it’s all about flamingoes and the next year it’s swans. Just when you’ve finally acquired every popular pin-legged coffee table, the abstract geometrics come in.

So it makes sense to shop around before you fork out your hard-earned cash on a fleeting trend.
