Shiplap Has its Place

Kendall Simmons explains she would like to see an end to "random shiplap that isn't in a farmhouse or on a boat." She advises homeowners considering indiscriminate use of shiplap to "stay true to the style of your home."

Mason Jar Decor

While mason jars have become a popular trend, Kendall says "spring for the real vase, please!"

Sheepskin Used as Throws and Mini Rugs

Simply put, "they're too small to make much sense as a throw or a rug," says Kendall.

Painted Accent Walls

"Just commit already! Rather than a blue accent wall, consider painting the entire room instead. Or, if that's too much blue for you, stick with blue art and accessories," Kendall explains.

Raised Breakfast Bars

"Hello 1992." Kendall says, "go for the counter-height eating area instead for a more up-to-date look."

Kendall explains, "if you need a 'Laundry' sign to know you're in your laundry room something is amiss."
