Enough With The Pineapples Already!

By Marica

I generally love sharing current décor and design trends with you guys & gals. I usually get super dooper excited when I spot a new buzzing trend online. AND, under normal circumstance, the title of this post would have read “Trend Alert: Pineapples“.

However the problem is… I can’t stand this trend. I blerrie (like the Afrikaans would say) hate those pineapples. Why, just tell me why? What’s with the pineapples? I just can’t right now…

Luckily I’m not alone in this, Rose also has lukewarm feelings regarding the whole pineapple business.

We often spot micro trends that we don’t immediately like but gradually warm to. This, dear readers, is NOT one of those trends. Furthermore, the fact that I’ve see it on every design blog and all over my Pinterest feed has only intensified my dislike.

I guess it is supposed to be playful and quirky and filled with summer fun. I generally like offbeat things but I honestly don’t see the pineapple appeal!

However, we won’t judge you if you do like the pineapple trend. The beauty of design and taste is that it is subjective.

So tell us, have you spotted the pineapple trend too? If so, yay or nay? Love or hate? let us know what you think!

P.S. The strangest thing happened while I was grudgingly sourcing the images for this post – I glanced at the pic of the pineapple wall clock and thought…”actually that’s not half bad, rather cute!” Ugh, save me now.
