Last year I wrote a post on the hipster haven that is the Ace Hotel. Since then I’ve been surprised at how many people find this blog by googling the phrase “hipster decor” or, by using another popular search term, “what is hipster decor?”. I began to realize that if so many people are asking, the thing formerly known as post-college/early-20s malaise decorating has morphed into a full-blown trend with its own name: Hipster Decor. If this is the case, what, exactly, does the term signify, or rather, what are the signifiers of this style? What follows is a superficial analysis of Hipster Decor, sub-types included at no extra charge. And I even hand-wrote this post to honor the most cherished of hipster tropes: anything analog.
