Take out EVERYTHING except the red wall and the houndstooth sofa. Then we can talk.

Tikimama said...

Eek. Ugh. Um.... The combination is terrible. A few of the things might be okay in a different setting...?

The Townhouselady said...

NO. My immediate thought is NO.

Just NO.

That's all.

lucitebox said...

Computer says, "no."

Decorina said...

5th on the NO. The color on the wall probably shifted, but it is just too orangy. Design by the blind, maybe?

David said...

No love here either.

g. said...

Wrong. Not eclectic. No.

Robin said...

This is one of those photos that makes me wish I had photoshop on this computer so I could recolor everything. I think the sofa, floor and wall color are great, would love to see it with all white rug, chair, pillows.

It might still suck, but I'd like to see it anyway.

thehomebound said...

Like the sofa, like the colors, don't like everything together.
Another no from me.

sherri said...

auuuuuuuuughhhhhhhhhhhh! too much going on.

Cristin said...

Way too much happening... but I'd die to have at least one red wall in my house...

Alexis said...

Ouch! My eyes are hurting!

Awesome Sara said...

i like everything but that red wall. redrum.... redrum... eeks!

Baglady said...

Gah! I hate it all too.



Which is not exactly adding much to the debate, I know. I can't even think of anything witty to say. Meh.

Eddie said...

It is like a rainbow exploded in the room! Love the color of the walls, but it is a little too color crowded!

House of Slappy said...

Stimulation overload. Can we get rid of the walls before they make me go nuts, please?

drollgirl said...

MY EYES ARE BURNING! AND SO IS MY BRAIN! but i could make that couch work in a different setting.

Camilla @ Designalogue Blog said...

You have got to be kidding me - Elle Decor - tell me please that this is a 'before' shot? too, TOO many wrong to say one thing right - just no.

nkp said...

Ugh, this is awful! Someone needs to kill that pink animal sitting center stage, I think it exploded and its innards sprayed the walls.

karly / design-crisis.com said...

When someone finally burns this room to the ground, as well they should, do you think they will save the couch for me? Erin might want that end table... just the top one.

karly / design-crisis.com said...

Might I add that this whole photo could be borderline ok if they lost that gross "slip covered" chair? Who does that?

Raina said...

Eddie - Hello there and welcome!

Karly - The whole look of the photo indicates the budget for a photo stylist was nonexistent. Beyond the pink velour beach towel thrown over the (probably unfortunate) yard sale find, the floral "arrangements" would make even 1800Flowers blush.

I would take that sectional in a heartbeat though.

erin@designcrisis said...

I will fight all you bitches for the couch, and Karly is right -- the end table is a ok by me.

What's REALLY bad, though, is the photography! Trust me - the room is hideous, but that is some god awful flash abuse going on there.
