Florals for spring? Not so fast, says Etsy.
This year, to align with our 'new norm,' the retailer recommends shying away from the traditional florals and letting one of their most talked-about trends take over: mushroom motifs.
The mushroom motif trend is making its way from gardens and wellness and shifting into our home décor this season. While it's certainly not a brand-new concept, this trend hit a peak in the '60s and '70s, it now offers a modern twist that many are enjoying.
According to Etsy's 2021 home décor trend report: "There has been a 371% increase in searches for mushroom lamps." In addition to "a whopping 902% increase in searches for mushroom pillows, and pillowcases," meaning this mushroom motif trend is taking off — and fast!
So, for those looking to jump on the mushroom motif bandwagon?
Here are five ways to efficiently and effortlessly execute one of this season's most talked-about trends.
