I've decided to go in a completely NEW direction for my living room. Don't even get me started on the amazeballs chairs I got and the great deal they were. Can't WAIT until i figure out how to recover them and paint them and show them to you all. So anyway, new direction. Therefore I need some ideas. So I've spent a little time on the ol' internet looking at some decorating. Following is my list of some serious missteps I found along the way. Makes me wonder what the hee haw people are thinking.
FIRST: (Do keep in mind these are pictures from CURRENT design magazines. these are NOT from, oh, the 70's.)
Oh no you di'int..........
What? Just WHAT happened here? So the designer said..."I've GOT IT. A GIANT fan." Perfection. Who does that? And really, just everything in this room is fug. And looking at this picture depresses me. Like LITERALLY makes me feel depressed. My eyeballs may have bled a little on this.
Well, until I saw this gem that is.
This deserves a WTF?
Green is something that should be used in moderation people. Not punch you in the face.
Right. Also in need of a punch in the face is the douchey designer who says..."you know what looks awesome? A huge, unruly stack of books, just laying all over the floor or coffee table." WHO thinks this is ok? It is NOT! You know what happens with a ridiculous stack of books? I'll tell you. They get covered in thick layers of dust. And that's because, NOONE wants to move all the damn books to dust them. Or, they get thrown, stepped on and ripped by toddler terrors. SUCH a BAD idea.
Hey, you know what this room is missing?....
a GIANT picture of a bird. Oh wait. GOT IT! And can we even talk about the fireplace surround? What's happening. Dogs chasing eachother? Llamas? Help me. Oh, and wait....there's that ridiculous stack of books again.
The only good thing...I like the chairs. Well, IF they had actual covering on them. White should NOT be allowed as a choice. Doesn't anyone spill?
Mary Kay called and she's PISSED you stole her living room.
I have one word for you......NO!
Wait, I have more words:
Pink shoud NEVER be an option on any wall, in any room of your home.
What stands out here?
Trying to figure out the posing for THAT picture over the fireplace.
You know what Alice, you sit sideways and look at a book. Meredith you stand straight on, arms folded, oh and Ethel, you know what would be fantastic....YOU stand naked. Makes TOTAL sense in the scheme of things.
And don't you think she woulda questioned the painter even a little bit?
What the hell?
I HATE rattan. I don't understand it in anyway as a furniture choice. I don't trust it. I don't want to sit on it, and I most certainly don't want it as my living room furniture.
Therefore.....all of THESE designers, whoever they may be are totally FIRED!
Ok, rant over.
In other news, we move on Saturday.
I'm not ready!
Cleaning this house seems to be the most overwhelming thought. Why do walls collect so much dust and dirt? And refrigerators gross me out. I'm tired thinking about it.
