Am I a horrible snob?
Here are mine:
Bowls of pebbles on coffee table (why?)
Black and diamanté furniture
Photos printed onto canvas (CRAP quality just get a good photographic print and frame it!)
Those shiny duvet sets and cushions
Fire surround but no fire place (not) even a hole in the wall!

I have a couple of canvas photos of scenes from a holiday we went on and they are good quality photos and prints. But not for everyone, fair enough.

Candles every flipping where.....

Duvet sets with sequins
Shoe ornaments - extra horror points if glittery
Any twee signs that say how sassy and independent you are or how you seize the day and dance in the rain
General tat on all surfaces
Black carpets

I could go on. I'm the miserable magnolia queen.

Oh, oh and any theme that is just done to absolute excess. "Omg I just love owls/hearts/unicorns/shells" and they're all over the fucking house.

I follow someone on instagram and she has 60,000 followers ... this is based on how nice her house is. But to me it's nice but nothing awe inspiring.

Things with a jaunty but rustic nautical theme, like roughly painted wooden lighthouses or things with unnecessary rope details.

Feature walls. It's not 1996 anymore love....
Signs that say 'it's not about waiting for the storms to pass, it's about dancing in the rain' or (even worse) 'excuse the mess, the children are busy making memories'.....Hmm
Fake flowers, they never ever ever look good.....
Canvases of newborns, they're all ugly as fuck.

When every fucking appliance and utensil in a kitchen matches (yes I'm looking at you DM) Lime green kettle, lime green toaster, lime green tea/coffee/sugar canisters, lime green place settings, lime green tea towels - you get the picture

Bon Appetite on a kitchen wall. No self respecting French person would even entertain such wankery

I'm guilty of having hearts,,,,a wooden heart hanging from the door in the spare room. It's made from a gorgeous piece of wood and was carved by a disabled person, whom I bought it from directly on their charities craft stall. I also have a glass heart hanging from a cupboard door, as it's hand blown and very pretty, irradescent shades of blue. I also have silver mirror mosaic hearts hanging from my kitchen door handle, ..about the size of my hand and it catches the light.

I also have a grey hall and a grey downstairs loo....for no other reason than I like them too,,,,😂

I don't have a glittery toilet seat though,,,,

I like canvas prints purely because my stupid walls in my stupid new build cannot seem to support the weight of a 'proper' picture frame with real glass. Angry
