here Just wanted to share this. The joy of frame clusters and tiny lightbuld shaped terraniums. And fireplaces full of emptiness grin [rin]

God I love it you probably have seen put a bird on it but it's always worth sharing!

Love it!!

drjohnsonscat Mon 20-Aug-12 11:58:55

love it. Remember in the early 90s everything had suns and moons on it? Now birds and typography.

Why are they so bloody angry over interior decoration. What's wrong with a good old wall cluster?

Love unhappy hipsters. I do also get unreasonably angry with people who have tick tick tick fashionable houses. Either shabby chic (here's my architect's drafts cabinet and my slightly faded taxidermy display) or minimalist (you'll never, ever find where I keep the washing up liquid). But then I'm sure somebody could do the same with my house.

It's just good to laugh at people who think they have it right. Also they like to think that this is just self-expression and a demonstration of their originality when all it actually shows is that they belong to a certain tribe - in this case the tribe who collect vintage cake stands. No different from auntie who has horse brasses and table mats showing scenes from yore of coaching inns. It's just that her house is not in a fashionable tribe.

My friend wAs featured on unhappy hipsters, we were all so proud

drjohnsonscat Mon 20-Aug-12 15:54:00

Can we know which one your friend is caerlaverock. Just a clue?

I'm hoping it's the top picture on this page

Actually I also get stupidly angry over home decoration (first world problem) I'm just bitter because I like frame clusters and mini elephants. Lol they must hate my home!

"Perfect" colourless shabby chic/minimalist homes - how do they actually live in there? There must be a constant fear of ruining the empty grey surfaces and artful displays?
Surely there can be no wine

This looks like the 'lifestyle' pages of Mollie Makes.

I'm more of an Unhappy Hipster than a Fuck Your Terranium or I would be if there weren't kids toys escaping from everywhere

I must be very sad because I like most of the homes on the fuck you site. I think I'm just pining for a home that isn't full of toys and piles of washing sad

Caerlaverock Tue 21-Aug-12 14:18:08

I like some of it too taco but still makes me laugh

HazeltheMcWitch Tue 21-Aug-12 15:21:57

Caerlaverock how did your friend make it onto site? Did she nominate herself? Is she a hipster? An unhappy one? Am really oddly intrigued!

Caerlaverock Tue 21-Aug-12 15:46:31

Her house featured in an American hipster magazine. She is fairly content but subject to life's up and downs like the rest of us!

grin << just that

FunnysInLaJardin Tue 21-Aug-12 16:42:15

I LOVE that blog OP! I showed DH though and he didn't geddit.

betterthannext Tue 21-Aug-12 17:43:06

I like some of the homes can1t understand why someone would waste so much time puting things in they don`t like what is the point?

minipie Tue 21-Aug-12 18:05:57

Oh I like that site. Though I do quite like cluster frame walls blush

Houses round where I live are not nearly as cool though similarly identikit. It would be more like Fuck Your Plantation Shutters and Inframe Cream Kitchen. <disclaimer: I have both>

Genius, thank you SO much for posting it.....

(rushes off to circulate to Friends Who Will Get It.....)

I love it, although around our way it's more likely to be 'fuck your home decoration, courtesy of Next interiors' (unfortunately!).
