Modern home decor is moving out to make room for more comfortable trends – and it’s about time

  • Modern home decor has gone out of style as a result of the pandemic.
  • Instead, people are choosing more comfortable pieces for their homes.
  • But modern decor has felt out of place in houses for years, turning homes into places made for being looked at rather than actually living your life.

In my childhood home, there were roosters everywhere.

No, my home wasn’t filled with live animals; my mom paid homage to the fluffy creatures with our decor. We had roosters on pillows, rooster-shaped vases, and even a chalkboard with a rooster trim.

How to determine which direction your home is facing

If you don’t already know which way your home faces, you’ll just need a compass (and yes, the one in Google Maps works). If you’re in a house, stand at the front door and see which direction the compass is pointing.

If you’re in an apartment—or want to figure out the direction a specific room in your house is facing—it’s not quite as straightforward. Sure, you could stand at the front door and see which direction the building faces, but if you’re decorating a room on the other side of the structure, that may
