For years, Pinterest has set the trends for home decor and interior design. In fact, there’s a good chance you scoped the website for inspiration before making your last decor changes. From farmhouse chic to industrial modern, there are thousands of Pinterest-approved aesthetics to choose from, but many of the ideas involve DIY projects. If the thought of touching a hot-glue gun gives you anxiety, skip the arts and crafts and buy these trending pieces instead. We promise, they won’t cost much more than building your own pieces, and they’ll still make your home look like it belongs on all your friends’ Pinterest boards.

1. Single Palm Leaf

Not your average faux plant, the Monstera Leaf Plant with modern design in mind. Adding a pop of color to every room not only provides a mood-lifting focal point, it also makes your space perfectly Instagrammable. Style this leaf alone or add several more to make a larger arrangement.

2. Geometric Accent Tables

Give your room a new angle, literally. This triangle side table from Urban Outfitters is full of fun surprises. Not only does it only have three sides, but the metallic finish of the legs along with the unusual placement of the table’s feet add to its retro funk feel. As an added bonus, the table is lightweight and suitably sized for small spaces.

3. Macrame Accents

What’s old is eventually new again, and this trend is surely one your parents or grandparents remember. Macrame is back and bolder than ever, especially when discussing wall hangings. This particular piece combines the artful nature of a tapestry with the practicality of a planter. The 100% woven cotton yarn can hold a 6 to 8-inch potted plant, bringing both the subtle style of macrame and the stress-relieving presence of greenery to your space.

If you’ve been to any restaurant remodeled within the last two years, you know that pendant light fixtures have become extremely popular. The exposed lightbulbs evoke a vintage, industrial feel that meshes well with a variety of interior design styles including farmhouse chic and modern minimalist. This Linea di Liara fixture is ideal for kitchens, particularly above counters and islands. It measures 7 inches by 8 inches and can accommodate LED, CFL, halogen and 60W incandescent light bulbs.
