Singing fish on the wall
but there were those dancing cans of coke too
new housemate put some windchimes up in her window (which faces out onto the street) :(
they're crap. Were crap the first time round, and even crapper as ironic decoration. if this was a thread entitled "eye-gougingly atrocious house decorations" then anything ironic would go in there.
I'll give you that one though.
"take me to your dealer"
the one from south park with Kenny's explosive diarrhoea

Bla bla some bullshit about being a moody teenager.

JACK VETTRIANO PICTURES
So much this to that!
That is so fucking deep.
like, where they're just painted blue or something
listening to Aphex Twin at 3am. And it's 1996.
Loads of china / porcelain stuff
Collections of anything - pigs, cuddly toys, dolls etc
I've never seen these.
Google isn't proving me with a picture for marckee :(
a Crying Boy picture
a Blue-faced Woman Picture or
a pin & thread picture
what a splash, everyone get me
Fostered by that home improvements thing with Carol Smillie that I can't remember the name of...
A concept that didn't go drastically wrong nearly enough to make good television.
National news it was. I seem to remember an abundance of plum coloured walls. The family hated it. Painful tears all round. Including from Rear of the Year herself.
I think I feel less sympathy with those people than I do with possibly any others on earth. Don't want your gaff ruined? Don't turn it over to a load of TV renovation knobheads then. It's a reasonably straightforward exchange.
Spurred on by that, I seem to recall Ryder-Richardson being quite the fox back in the day. Am I wrong there?
ARR has had a tough time of it too:
Linda Barker still looking fab at 50; Anna Ryder-Richardson hurting people in zoos. A crying shame.
Is it just overly elaborate corniceing or something?
Don't worry - I'm ready to hate it.
Bang on the money there. Looks like you've picked an example where stencilling and that shit's been combined. With horrible consequences.
striped, embossed wall paper underneath, solid colour wall paper above.
Nothing says "we watch X Factor as a family" more than this.
but it's cracked me up regardless
that goes around the whole room at waist height, think origanally to gaurd against chair marks.
later replaced by a foot wide strip of different wallpaper separate colours/styles as described above
No. Dado rails were introduced to stop chair backs damaging the plaster. Picture rails are used to hang pictures off of.
to give you an idea of where the pictures should end.
yer fuckin dado rail
Sorry for the error above.
get to fuck
salmon pink, purple, beige etc
Why are these a thing?
nice and warm when you come out the shower.
carpets in general are loads better.
a flagstone patio. Dig further and you will find crazy paving
Though it is an occasional home-design fad, its general unpopularity in the UK today is estimated to reduce the value of a property by up to 5%
...my missus and I went to look at a place purely because it had a fully stone-cladded exterior. We decided that spending £300k on something for childish giggles was probably not a good idea. Still not sure if we made the right decision tbh tbf.
in the corner of the room.
Also see the same thing but with big peacock feathers. FUCKING HELL.
- Shaker-style kitchens
- Those black electric living room fires that every one puts in on Homes Under The Hammer.
- Feature walls
If so, I fucking hate those so much.
If anyone has one, consider yourself my enemy.
That's the thing.
Sometimes they're just a contrasting colour.
We have workmen coming in today to give a quote for repainting it. The new tenant sounds fussy.
when it was first done i had nightmares
out things like Love or Hope or Kitchen. You know what I'm talking about.
what a nob.
Maybe all mums do. I blame her subscription to Good Housekeeping.
It's a style modelled on the New England Shaker timber homes. The doors and drawers typically have a flat panel bordered by 'planks' around the edges. They're usually presented as beech, painted white, or an egg-shell blue.
They were quite trendy for a while back in the early-noughties, then very popular amongst the property developers influenced by Sarah Beeney, and now, as a consequence, associated with quick-buck refurb jobs that you'll have to rip out in only a few years.
and cath kidston knockoff florals
All "classy" like
Its most definitely my home going by how it looks thats for sure. ive done something recently which i like, i have my congos sitting at the top of the stairs, and ive arranged some vinyl of different sizes going up like bubbles from the congos.
e.g. "M is for MUM and not MAID"
So far I've lost two days!!!!!
"If you sprinkle when you tinkle, be a sweetie and wipe the seatie"
Don't make me want to wipe my shit up the walls
I can only please one person a day... Today is not your day. Tomorrow is not looking good either.
picture of man in an apron in cooking something
nothing says "student digs" like a throw
that's perfectly acceptable surely
sofas: just buy a new sofa FFS
It's boil-in-the-bag perversion for sexually repressed accountants and first-year drama students with too many posters of Betty Blue, The Blues Brothers, Big Blue and Blue Velvet on their blue bloody walls.
though my mate Eddie had a serving hatch in his house and I always thought it was the coolest thing ever. Used to go round there, have fishfingers chips and beans and then sit around watching thundercats, whilst his dad sat in the corner and drank cider.
This made me actualol at my desk
wanted to put one in my new flat, til I realised the boiler was in the way.
hanging brass plates/jars up on the wall. I don't think I'm making this up.
Brass horseshoes on a leather strap were very popular: http://thumbs4.ebaystatic.com/d/l225/m/mMs9yrkMFLcvWRk-6ZYY7pw.jpg
Also mug trees. A fucking mug isn't decoration.
Why not take everything out the cupboards and be done with it. Better get my baking trays on a tree to brighten the kitchen up a bit.
c'mon people - doorway beads! Nothing expresses your unique individuality like doorway beads.
their infernal buzzing has driven my mad
not out of any appreciation, it’s awful
the person who lived here before hadn’t changed anything for decades
highlights include the patterns covering all walls and floors: http://i.imgur.com/vLp5MiO.jpg
although the stuff hanging on the walls is probably more suitable for this thread: http://i.imgur.com/5mAneqW.jpg http://i.imgur.com/roPQev7.jpg
designed so that vomit stains just blend in!
ornament of pinup style lady with solar lights for boobs.
those specific pig ornaments they sold in every newsagents and every single one would be doing something different like having a pint or archery. pigs can't even hold stuff. (the proto 'bad news bears' collectables)
I fucking love a good lava lamp me.
I'd quite like one again.
Has anyone said Billy The Big Mouthed Bass?
I'm a blind fuck
