What about you, Casseroles?
but I have lots of friends with more than 5
Got the odd family photo or two around as well
or it doesn't count
"9 Slogan artwork
Are your walls covered in bon mots and witty aphorisms? Then Keep Calm and Carry On, because they're perfectly aligned with the zeitgeist."
Favourite word of The Face c1986
Actually a bit surprised to have none of them
(I wouldn't really - that was sarcasm)
assume they're supposed to mean "stuff that came as a trend and has stuck around cos it's just that great"
like having cushions with the insignia of one of the most murderous colonial regimes in history on them
that's everything that stuck around surely?
maybe it's everything style based that's stuck around possibly
i'm sure they were trendy
then old man gravesy said 'pff, where will these "sofas" be in five years?' and spit on the hard wood floor (carpet wasn't permatrending yet)
they probably thought lying on a chaise longue to eat food was a permatrend
but look at 'em now
and is that definitely Union Jack pillows? definitely?
permanence is the opposite of a trend
trends that come from a town in Benin?
A trend that was so ubiquitous that it became an archetype of its period
10 Family photo galleries: pretty normal, not a trend
8 Metro tile splashback: looks pretty nice
6 A trio of pendants: be nice to have these, but if you're hung up about them being a trio you're a cunt
2 Exposed brick walls: fine i guess
4 Mismatched chairs round a farmhouse table: if you're doing this on purpose you're a fucking prick
3 Typography: sort of dickhead, kind of ok
5 Antlers: fuck off
7 Supersized things: fuck the fuck off
9 Slogan artwork: fucking dickhead idiots
1 The Union Jack cushion: truly fucking horrific
do people really have them?
Even a pink one :(
or the white?
or the blue? I can't work out how this would work
I think that's treason or something.
not that fussed about deliberately mismatched chairs. like, I've got "deliberately" mismatched tea mugs. I mean, not deliberate, but I prefer having a selection to having matching ones
BUT, I have a black leather wall. Just one wall. Black leather. not even a gimp dungeon or anything, just the sitting room.
I bought the flat from my sister and she bought it from a guy who by all accounts seemed to run it as a gay brothel.
Imagine the fun cats would have climbing that!
Also, are you sure the flat wasn't in Changing Rooms or whatever? That sounds like the sort of thing Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen would put in.
Though I actually have two Stars and Stripes cushions (from Primark).
but I'd like Metro tiles in my bathroom.
guess which one ...
really wanted to call you an exposed prick
we've got some geordie aphorisms on the wall that i made on illustrator and got done at a proper printers for mothers day last year, if they count
just the union jack pillows can't get enough of them
We're still waiting on marckee to end the thread, right?
gives an indicator of a desire for middle classness?
Or should this have a class of its own 'weekend suplement lifestyleness'?
but I wouldn't mind some antlers actually. my cousin live in the wilds of scotland and her husband is the cairngorm ranger so I could get a perfect stag's skull for naught.
Really tie the room together.
where he totally goes for the, "you should look up what it's about before you judge" :'D
Think they sell many?
- Antlers for hanging stuff on. Don't like the bright plastic ones there but done right, they're fine.
- Metro tiles. They look nice.
- Gallery style photo wall. If you're the narcissistic sorts who have photos of yourself/family festooned everywhere then this is contextually apt.
By the door, to hang coats on. Nowhere near as garish as the ones in that article mind. I don't like them.
they looked alright
