Happy Friday! Today’s Friday Five is Five Trends We’re OVER. If you follow me on Facebook, I asked what design trends you wish were history. I asked; you answered. Here they are: the top five trends we’re done with:

5. “Keep Calm” Signs
You know the signs I’m talking about: Keep Calm and Rock On, Keep Calm and Eat a Cupcake, etc. I liked this one:
So, those are the top five design trends you are ready to see go. What else would you include on this list? Please share in the comments.
