Between his two books, a new television show and a furniture line, we know Pennington is up-to-date with home trends. So what, exactly, is popular today? Not to our surprise, Pennington talked about tiny homes and how there will be more downsizing in the future. "[We're] definitely seeing a lot smaller homes because they're more affordable to maintain," he said.
Interestingly, Pennington also mentioned that he's involved in projects with what he calls "companion homes" where families will take, for example, garages and transform them into little apartments or make them into additional kitchens or bedrooms. "It's all about taking what you have, maximizing the space and adding on," he said.
To learn more about what he's up to and the home trends he's noticed this year, watch the clip above. And be sure to click through our slideshow to see some decor fads we're tired of seeing.
