You probably have something in mind after reading this headline: a trendy home decor item that seems to be all over the internet, but that you can't stand. We asked this question of six of our favorite influencers in the home and design space—here's what they had to say.

Gray Malin:

"Chevron patterns. I can't confirm or deny that I've never utilized this popular pattern but I can confidently say I have been long over the trend." — @graymalin

Hilton Carter of Things by HC:

"One of the design trends that everyone seems to love that I'm not a fan of are letter boards with quotes on them. Honestly, I guess I'm not a fan of any decor that has sayings or quotes on it. It's just not my thing." — @hiltoncarter

Amber Lewis of Amber Interiors:

"A trend everyone loves, and I have been guilty of creating for many years, but am now 100% over... is open floor plans!!! I think it would be nice to return to designated rooms. I like the idea of a kitchen opening up to a family room, but I say bring back the separate dining room, and maybe add back in some walls or two!" — @amberinteriors

Camille Styles:

"Patterned wallpaper has definitely been having a moment lately, especially in small spaces like powder rooms. All of my designer friends swoon over maximalist wallpaper prints and even though I admire a bold gesture, I'm secretly thinking how much more I'd love a fresh coat of white paint with some great art hung on top of it." — @camillestyles

Joy Cho of Oh Joy:

"The '90s trend. I actually adored the '90s and I lived some of my best years during that decade, but I don't need it to come back as full force as it has. Maybe it's just feels too recent to already be making a comeback?" — @ohjoy

Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere:

"Black hardware in the kitchen—faucets, drawer pulls, lights. Every few years a new finish becomes super trendy and everyone jumps on board (myself included a few years ago with all brass fixtures). I happen to think it looks gorgeous, especially when juxtaposed against a white, clean space, but would urge against doing something that feels so of-the-moment in lieu of sticking with the classics." — @emilyschuman

What about you? What's a trend that seems to be all over, but that you just can't stand?
