Life is too short to live ugly.
Spot on. My reactions exactly.
Is hooker-chic a thing? That foyer screams brothel.
Those lacquered green walls and that rug slay me in a good way, the other rooms -in the worst way. Agreed R, did you go in person? Always wanted to get to this one.Good luck packing up and selling your digs! have a nice weekend.xo NancyPowellbrowerhome.com
What's that jizz-jazz in the tub? :)Now you have to say it.
How bad do I want to lacquer a wall now?!
Foyer is very Wearstler. Did I spell that right?
That black and white tile is like something from an airport cafe where the cappuccino comes in a foil packet with a cup of hot water and mini moo.
please please please follow the link to the NYT article and you will have an even greater appreciation for the showhouse. that junk in the tub? i'm quoting here "crumpled bits of paper scrawled with phrases like 'Bamboo: Hate or Love?'"make.it.stop.
Heather - I did read the article, searching for a reason(s) as to why some of what happened happened. I think show house designers are divided into two camps - the ones who want to show off their very best work and the ones who want press. Actually, that's probably true of design in general.
I think its true of many professions, mine included: Art Curation!!!!!
I like certain elements of the foyer, the chandelier & cocktail, but I'm not convinced they belong together in the same space with that shiny sofa and random garden stool. That entire pillow situation however is inexcusable.
I kinda like the ugly. Hangs his head down sheepishly Uh oh
I was conceived in a motel like "the ugly." I've been "bad" ever since. The "good": ha ha ha ha I'm staying alive.
I think you pretty much nailed it!
If the goal is to decorate as much like Elvis as possible, that foyer is pretty spot on. Otherwise, it makes me feel a little dizzy.
This year's show house is embarrassingly bad. The only good rooms were Kathryn Ireland's, the one you showed as the "good" one (which it's only so so), and the white/cream boring room my Ms. Gomez. There is no room to truly love, which does not say much for the industry, when the top show house in the country is dullsville.
