Interiors or parking lots?

I really really want to love these two shots, but...

Parking lot for stools and chairs.

Parking lot for molting animal skins.

Credit due: The blog goddess at Designers' Brew first used the term "parking lot" in this context.

Both images from Desire to Inspire.

Yes, a parking lot. Don't mind -- I'd love to be transported to that 1st photo right this minute. But what on earth are those big, juicy blobs on the floor in the 2nd photo? Ick. I have a Great Pyranees and those piles look similar to ones I had to scrub off the floor after he got into my daughter's Halloween candy.

I wonder how many times one would have to trip over those fur blobs before grabbing them up and hurling them off the balcony.

Those blogs are fur? I thought they were a failed batch of macaroons. (Made by someone who put the cookies on the baking sheet with their feet.)

Also, what about the rolled up flotation devices?
Hey! Wait. These are cookies and chocolate bars meant to be eaten with a nice (conveniently located) cold glass of milk.

Whoops. Blobs, not blogs.

The second one is just disturbing and frankly, frightening.

The second one kind of looks like a bunch of chocolate chip cookies that just came out of the oven. This kind of creeps me out.

Oh, someone else that about food too!

Are you sure they're fur? They look like stones in the floor to me...

Parking lot for stools, though. Maybe they're expecting lots of small guests. Leprechauns or something. Meh.

Raina said...

Well that would make more sense, Baglady. Slightly.

"Watch you step, sir. The architect was going for the 'natural' look and decide to place the doorway in front of these lovely boulders."

Crazier things have happened.

Giant stepping stones!?

I think that room in the second picture could realy use some Orla Kiely ;)

Designers' Brew said...

yeah, I think they're stones... maybe the house is built on rock and they decided to integrate that into the floor? Wright did it at Fallingwater but at least he located the stone in front of the hearth so people wouldn't incessantly stub their toes on it as they crossed the room. This I think is just willfully stupid. So, a parking lot for the willfully stupid.

We had an outbreak of dry rot once. It kind of looked like that second pic.

It still beats the parking lot of boxes I have in my dining room (contents: cut glass). Well, the boxes may be better than those animal skins, at least they don't look intentional

Cookies and Macaroons are distracting me from the ridiculous overuse of repeated objects. It's like someone had a lot of leftovers from other projects.
