LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - "That's so 2019!"
Maybe you’ve already heard someone say that, or maybe you’ve thought it while looking around your house, or in your closet.
Either way, WAVE 3 News is trying to help prepare you for the new decade with new trends.
Realtor.com released a list with some of its hot and not-so-hot trends for the new year, and they may surprise you.

They also say it’s time to get rid of the “bedding in a kit” and spend your money and time being more creative on pieces that have meaning in your home.
