Would you be willing to admit that you didn't like a room featured in Domino Magazine?
While I generally write about things related to interior design that make my heart sing, today I want to address a subject that seems to be a bit taboo in the blogosphere, admitting that you don't like something that everyone else seems to love. What comes to mind is the Hans Christian Anderson tale of The Emperor's New Clothes. Why aren't more bloggers like the little child who asks why the guy is naked?
Design is all about personal preference. One person's idea of fabulous may leave another wanting to gouge his or her eyes out. I could safely admit that I detest silk flower arrangements with a passion that extends further than the BP oil spill. I'm pretty sure I'm not alone on that one. But what if a blogger admitted that he or she didn't like graphic wallpaper, zebra rugs, anything with a quatrefoil design, the color turquoise, Lonny or the work of Jonathan Adler? Would said blogger be crucified?
I may be taking a risk here, but today I am hosting a first, Tell It Like You See it Day.
I know I'm' in the minority here, but I detest foo dogs, I don't care if they are the height of Chinoiserie chic, a style I admire, I think they are the most heinous looking things on the planet.
There, I said it. It feels good to get that off my chest.
Now it's your turn. Is there a popular trend or style that you secretly loathe? You can share, you're in a safe place.
