"Needs updating!" Well, this is an interesting concept.
This years fashion will be out next year, but designers put this load on us, and updating a kitchen or living space is $$$! You put circle and triangle prints on your upholstery, and it will all be stripes next year. You buy the hot red or green refrigerators, and everyone will know what year you bought those in.
They will outlast, but do you kick them to the curb because they are "dated?"
I think trendy is great with hair and clothes, but flooring, cabinetry, upholstery, furniture and appliance colors should be classic and not "datable."
Am I wrong?
