Hate It! Bad Design Ideas

Open any magazine on the market and you will see beautifully designed rooms that are perfectly put together.  They make you want to run out and purchase those items and have a room just like it.  However, where is the magazine that has bad design ideas?

Do you want to see some of them?  Take a look at one of the realtor websites like Zillow or Realtor.Com and look at the reality of some of the interiors of homes for sale.  It amazes me how so many homes are outdated, lackluster and just plain dreary.  I really don’t understand why.  I can only assume that those homes belong to people that have other interests and that their personal surroundings just don’t affect their demeanor, personality or they just don’t care.  But, damn, are there really that many people out there that don’t realize the affect their home will have on their daily lives?

All that being said, there are some items out there that I would just DIE if my client brought them in for me to design around.  Of course, on the flip side of that, a good designer can design around anything and make it work.  So here are a few pics of those items I would probably blow coffee out my nose if my client pulled them out to work with…(after cleaning said “nose coffee” I would obviously design something spectacular to work with them…I’m just sayin’).

To those of you that already sport these lil’ gems, sorry.  In a log cabin, in the middle of the woods, in a very cold climate, in the dark, they will be perfect.  Like an ugly woman in a bar at three in the morning after 4 or 5 glasses of wine, these too will start looking okay.  Gulp!
