From their skinny jeans and oversized readers to their mason-jarred kale smoothies, you can spot a hipster from a mile away. But while they've done a fantastic job of perfecting their look for the outside world, what about behind closed doors?

Just about anyone can get behind these decor trends that we can confidently say are here to stay, but then there are those that are found in trendy San Francisco apartments to Brooklyn lofts and every warehouse/downtown district in between.

  • Mustache Anything

  • Because facial hair of any kind is pretty much a hipster staple, right?
  • And Mason Jar Everything
  • As much as we love our mason jar DIYs, putting your pets inside of them just takes it to a whole "trendy" new level.
  • Dreamcatchers
  • Bonus points if it's hanging somewhere ironically.
  • Chalkboard Paint

  • Great for planning out which vegan smoothies to make for the week and which skinny jeans to wear tomorrow.
  • Overdone Record Players
    Urban Outfitters
  • How else would you listen to your Justin Timberlake and Mackelmore vinyl?
  • Birds And Other Critters
  • The squirrels that watch you listening to "bands that don't exist yet" at the park don't count.
  • Or Just Owls On Owls

  • If hipster decor had an official mascot...
  • Eyeglasses

  • To forget readers of any kind, in any situation from decorating to dressing would simply be a crime.
  • Tapestries
  • Extra credit if it's a tapestry with an owl motif on it.
  • Terrariums
    Urban Outfitters
  • Standard house plants? Too mainstream. Fresh-cut flowers? Illogical. Tiny plants housed in tiny geometric containers? Just right.
  • Animal Hangers
    Urban Outfitters
  • Nothing beats a cat wearing a Hawaiian... except maybe (maybe) a cat wearing a beanie.
  • Faux Taxidermy

  • Because real taxidermy would be cruel... and make sense.
  • Ironic Wall Stitchings

  • "Home sweet home" is so 90s.
  • And Ironic Coffee Table Books
  • Great for starting conversations with other hipster friends who bought the same book from the Urban Outfitters "library."
