Things I Do Not Love - Day 7

My mom used to have these flowers in our house that were dry.  Like, I think they grow on the stem dry already and they were always cracking and dropping bits and they bugged me.

For whatever reason, these remind me of those dry messy flowers.

Why these bring up that memory I don't know but every time I see one in a magazine it gives me a shiver.  Maybe the thought of these dropping massive dry chunks all over my house.  
Not sensible but still, no African Headdresses adorning my walls.

And that wraps up our month!  
Bye February!  
Thanks for the extra day.

Things I Do Not Love - Day 6

I feel nervous I've said this before cause it really is one of my very top things of not loving but I guess if I'm repeating myself then at least I'm consistent.

All white.

Chatelaine 2016

I wanna like it.  
I want to be all hip and swank and paint a whole room 
and every piece of furniture white and love it but I can't.
It makes me feel CHILLY.  
Not even a smidge of cozy for me in an all white room
 and no sheepskin rug is going to change that for me.
For an added bonus, anyone notice on of my past year's dislikes in this space?

Things I Do Not Love - Day 5

Today's complaint has more to do with photography than design I think. 
And much to do with my lack of comprehension.
I just don't get it.

Style Manitoba 2015
How does a room have all that space?  
Where are you standing in a normal bedroom to take a shot that has that much empty floor? 
Do they disco in there when they're not sleeping?
There is just nowhere in my room I can stand with my camera and capture that much empty floor and any client's bedrooms I've seen also do not have that kinda real estate in their master.
Is it a camera trick??
It makes me crazy.

Things I Do Not Love - Day 4

A couple of February's ago I shared my dislike of the starburst.
I'm happy to say I remain consistent.
Still don't like.

Things I Do Not Love - Day 3

I can almost get behind the Texas cowboy cook out aspect of this... 

 and then it's 1995 all over again and I'm sponge painting my bathroom walls.
Can't do it.

Things I Do Not Love - Day 2

I feel apologetic about this one.  
I'm sorry.
I don't meant to hurt his feelings.

But the fiddle leaf fig tree IS everywhere and he drives me crazy.  
Who can say?
  Just bugs me.
Go find a jungle to stand in Mr. Fiddle.

Things I Do Not Love 2016

Happy February everyone and welcome to Things I Do Not Love 2016!
For those of you who may be new and wondering what on earth this might be all about, mushy gushy February is my annual month of showing you some stuff in decorland that drives me nuts.
Not that I don't like Valentines Day...I do.  
Just for fun. 

And to start the month....drumroll please....

Oh my.  
Truthfully I don't like any lamp shade on this page but those pleated ones are dreadful.
House Beautiful loves em!  I do not.  How about you?
