I realize that taste is subjective. I understand that we all have our own design aesthetic. We like what we like and hate what we hate.
There is a flip side to everything. I know we all like to think we’re living on the Side A of life but come on. Without a little side of B, things would be pretty boring…and kind of lopsided.
Today, I’d like to introduce you to a dramatic representation of the bad side of good. I call this Side B(utt) Ugly.
Take a look at this photograph. A really close look. Now, describe for me what you think the designer was thinking when they came up with this concept.
Without using the words: puke, gross, grandma, blind, child labor or PETA.
What are the odds the owner didn’t use a designer but decided — all on their own — to save a few bucks and hire themselves. It’s easy to take all your favorite things, paint some of them white and put them in the same room and…voila! A visual representation of insanity.
The only thing of beauty in this photo is the tulip arrangement. You can’t fuck up tulips…unless you put them in a vase that looks like some Victorian lady’s ass without a girdle.
I’m sure everything in this room was expensive. That rug alone runs about $2,000. Cha-ching! When they say money can’t buy happiness, they mean it. I’d be crying every time I opened the front door.
