My friend Jessamie at Bird & Branch Redesigns is hosting a link party today. She posted some cool design pics and had her hubby comment on them and it turned out to be one of her favorite posts, you can read it here. So Jessamie decided to let us have a turn at it with our handsome men as well. I had a hard time picking pictures for this and I did pick a few on the crazier side of design just to see what he would say. Some made me laugh and maybe you’ll enjoy a chuckle or two as well. Take it away Blooming hubs!
OK, cool space here, save for the giant descending spider on the upper left – hello arachnophobia!! Big clock is definitely cool with all the checkers or small pebbles all around
…and here’s the spider web where the other spider above came from, how nice! And a nice touch of broccoli or possibly asparagus in the foreground, I’m sure that comes in handy in the kitchen. And that table (?) looks like something a magician would use to saw someone in half, but maybe that’s just me. On the plus side, cool molding and nice stove!
Definitely getting a sense that creepy lighting is the theme of these pictures, now we’re going for a sea urchin look here or perhaps a Medusa tribute piece or something like that. Wall, color, gold shelving, brown chairs, and a sweet rug, however almost make up for that weird piece above.
And here’s the bird cage, how nice. The bird ate the spider that wiggled and wiggled and tickled inside her….is that how the song goes? My other thought here, on the bird theme? Looks like a giant cracked egg has landed here, with the yolk on top of the chair and the egg whites on that other…thing…there to the right.
At ease, pink poodle soldiers! Feel like I just stepped out of an Austin Powers movie or something
And here’s their little friend, the rarely photographed white long-necked labrador. But hey, some props on those couches and the cool boat in the corner
Ummmm….OK then. First off, what’s with the posing toddler above the mantle? Kinda weird. Looks like the kind of picture you give to your grandma as a 2×3 wallet, not turn into a 80 x 120 gallery-ready centerpiece? Things get a little awkward at the photo studio perhaps? Now that I’ve recovered from that I can see nice archways, a pretty cool table and of course some HYDRANGEAS (that remind me of my bride!)
“Hey Grumpy! We’ve been looking all over for you!”
So giant wall that is made to look like some sort of exotic flooring meets the baby incubator? Or maybe they are hatching chicks in the crib perhaps?
Well, this one isn’t my style so much here, but at least I can respect this one, especially after the others that have come before. I’m not big on mismatched chairs (or really anything not matching, just ask Ange) myself, and the big Roman pillar thing is cool, but just doesn’t fit in here.
“Excuse me – your drain is showing!”
But I do like this room though, very classy and stylish. Is the running horse supposed to be something to remind you of running water? Just curious.
Not bad other than the massive beehive hanging above the table. And exactly what room in the house is this? I can’t tell what the purpose is here of this space.
Hallelujah! Nothing to critique here, this space has nice soothing colors and a rug that reminds me for some reason of that chart you have when you pick out Jelly Belly jelly beans. I could just hop in this picture for a nice siesta me thinks.
Kinda looks like a few walls and some random furniture (including some sort of like hammock chair) were just strewn in the jungle out the window. Is this some sort of Salvador Dali picture? Where’s the melting clock?
And last but not least…hey hon, I don’t think you should have put our actual bedroom picture in this set of pictures! (Kidding) So massive pelt of racoons meets pink velour headboard with space-age lighting and Chevron flooring! So nice to see a minimalistic style used so well here, wouldn’t you say? More is definitely less here…
Thanks babe for being a sport and playing along today! Props to the hubs for knowing what Chevron is! He really must listen as I drone on and on about this kind of stuff. I’m linking up at Bird & Branch Redesign, won’t you come join me and read what other men had to say about design and decor. We might want to pee first or make sure you are sitting on a oilcloth covered chair first.
