For me it’s got to be those massive bloody clocks made up of parts which get stuck to the wall. We’re house hunting at the moment and they’re in almost every kitchen. Those and navy walls nearly always coupled with wicker furniture and cheese plants - it feels like such a ‘done’ look now.

Interested to hear yours!

Those awful white handleless kitchen cabinets.

Grey everywhere.

Anything from Designer rooms

all glitzy & crushed velvet silver

When everything is grey, it looks like a black and white photo!

The fact everyone has loads of plants, 🥱

Fake wood panelling

LightDrizzle · 11/02/2024 19:33

The clocks here too! Still everywhere.
Grey everything
Crushed velvet with mirrored surfaces and crystal accessories

I still think the navy wall thing looks nice, - and no, I don’t have one!

Words or Slogan 'Art'. Just makes me irrationally angry.
Diamante anything.
Matching units of furniture

What's wrong with plants? I have loads of them. They make me happy

WiddlinDiddlin · 11/02/2024 19:36

Live Laugh Love or similar on the walls.
More fucking grey.

I have to confess unfortunately my kitchen IS dark grey, lighter worktops dark wood effect floor... but I had very little choice from Howdens range (grant funded kitchen) so it was the best I could do and im now trying to inject colour into it (red kettle, red sodastream!)

thestringcheesemassacre · 11/02/2024 19:36

great big “our family rules blah blah “ signs

SacreBleugh · 11/02/2024 19:37

Yes those massive clocks. And the greige glumness. And big canvass pictures of highland cows.

catscalledbeanz · 11/02/2024 19:37

It endures and I suspect always will, but for me minimalism is awful. Soulless.

FoxtrotOscarFoxtrotOscar · 11/02/2024 19:38

TVs nailed to walls.

MaraScottie · 11/02/2024 19:39

Anything with Live Laugh Love on it.
Giant clocks
Diamanté anything
Grey laminate floors
Cheap looking curtains
Anything too matchy

Feature walls

Xh129 · 11/02/2024 19:40

Media walls

Granite / quartz / marble worktops. Especially when paired with high gloss units.

Also I just painted my living room dark green and it feels dated already. I think it’ll be the next thing to go out. Sigh.

peachgreen · 11/02/2024 19:40

Oh and gallery walls. I still quite want one though.

soupfiend · 11/02/2024 19:41

Also open plan personally

Granite / quartz / marble worktops

I really want a granite or quartz worktop - so much more practical than laminate. My worktop hate is wood.

Midnlghtrain · 11/02/2024 19:42

Any sort of wall decal! Or under / oversized furniture clearly not sized well for the room.

Oh they definitely are the most practical. I don’t mind them when they’re not sparkly or faux marble effect. I like the look of wood but it is a pain to take care of.

High gloss, especially in ‘cold’ colours - brilliant white, cold grey, shiny black, acid green….

Big wallpaper patterns

No books, pictures or photos.
