Your thoughts please

Andy Spade, husband of Kate and creator of manbags, has a new boutique selling among other things the services of a decorative painter who, for $1500 and up, will come to your home and paint a fake fire in your decorative fireplace mantel.

I think this should be tagged "hell to the no."

A little too Thomas Kincade for my taste.

Cristin said...

nope.

Raina said...

Hi ya Yana and welcome to this deliciousness!

karly / design crisis said...

screw the fire, why the hell doesn't that mantel go all the way to the floor? It's hurting me

Decorina said...

Don't know what happened to my comment...but anywho, I'm still laughing at the mantle that doesn't go all the way to the floor. They whole thing is just stoopit.

oh ugh! this is terrible, if you're going to go faux I'd buy the dvd of a real fire going!

susie q said...

Oh please.

lisa said...

Raina said...

I second that sentiment, Lisa. And welcome!

Trixie Jones said...

Designers' Brew said...

hello gorgeous said...

I don't know what happened to my comment either.

What erin said.

Kate said...

It makes sense to me, especially if I was being paid $1500 a pop.
I'm with Karly and the conundrum of why it doesn't go all the way to the floor?
Costs you an extra $1500 to finish it off?

Raina said...

I think it's occupying the shop wall, sort of a looky looky at what we can do. More eye-catching if it's elevated.

Raina said...

And I would happily pay Kate $1500 to paint a scene in my fireplace, but it would kick ass as only Kate's work can.

It wouldn't be some Thomas Kinkade looking mess like that.
