To ask your interior design pet hates?

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'm with you on the furniture. Also animal print chairs etc.
I have a couple if canvases that look great, but they aren't huge and not my photos so are actually good
AloeVeraSeeYaCilla · 16/07/2017 20:45
Those dangly heart things in windows and doors.
AloeVeraSeeYaCilla · 16/07/2017 20:47
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.....

What do you mean fire surround but no fire?
NicolasFlamel · 16/07/2017 20:49
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
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.
tumblejumble · 16/07/2017 20:51
Those grey velvet sofas everyone has and thinks they are celebrity's now.
HazelBite · 16/07/2017 20:51
Those ornamental words "Love" "Bath" etc etc
minipie · 16/07/2017 20:52
Words on the wall - bathe, eat, sleep, love etc. in fact, words and slogans generally
Blingy chrome chandeliers, "crystal" doorknobs, black gloss furniture
Those sofas which are half fabric and half plastic

Decorative cushions on beds
What is the point?
tulippa · 16/07/2017 20:53
Massive word ornaments. Eg RELAX in ceramic capitals placed above the bath or LOVE sitting on the mantelpiece.
LittleWingSoul · 16/07/2017 20:53
Statement wallpaper. Most statement wallpaper anyway...
Ditto the twee signs
SydneyJones · 16/07/2017 20:53
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.
Zelfaba · 16/07/2017 20:54
Things with a jaunty but rustic nautical theme, like roughly painted wooden lighthouses or things with unnecessary rope details.
ijustwannadance · 16/07/2017 20:54
Beech kitchen units
minipie · 16/07/2017 20:54
Neutral decor with an accent colour everywhere. Eg beige room with teal cushions, teal vase, teal feature wall.
camelfinger · 16/07/2017 20:54
Loads of cushions and stuff on the bed.
Asparaguswee · 16/07/2017 20:55
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'.....
Fake flowers, they never ever ever look good.....
Canvases of newborns, they're all ugly as fuck.
Jennyhatesjazz0 · 16/07/2017 20:55
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
tulippa · 16/07/2017 20:55
Sorry cross post with HazelBite
RockyBird · 16/07/2017 20:55
Bon Appetite on a kitchen wall. No self respecting French person would even entertain such wankery
Bluntness100 · 16/07/2017 20:55
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,,,,
Pallisers · 16/07/2017 20:55
Words on walls
Curtains that don't reach the floor
Any kind of decorative swag of fabric over a window
thenightsky · 16/07/2017 20:56
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.
