Decorating and design

Post by mavisbramston » 31 May 2017, 22:24

I guess everyone has pet hates when it comes to design or decorating.. I have never understood cushions on the bed. Often there are dozens of them. You even find them in motel rooms and especially b And bs. Firstly I dont understand why people put cushions on the Bed which you generally chuck off once in bed. In b and bs I am very dubious about how hygenic this is. Crowded bathroom and kitchen benches. We are all guilty of this. Take a deep breath and put everything that really is not important in a cupboard. Looks muvh better. Most people list plastic flowers as the biggest design or decorating no no. I disagree. Artificial flowers are great especially when real flowers are either too expensive or not available. Not everyone is lucky to have a garden. Artiificial flowers often look inpressive. The snobbish attitude against them is stupid.

As long as the plastic flowers are washed regularly.

Mmmm fake orgasms have saved many a relationship. :
Another thing hate although I think its gone now (or is it) is plastic covering on furniture. Horrid!
Kids no problem but adults putting cuddly toys on bed? No I am not referring to the toys most of us have in a cupboard beside the bed lol. :lol:

Ah Franny Fine , the Nanny, and the plastic covered lounge suite. :lol: :lol: :lol:
But some kind of washable cover for the lounge would be handy, especially in the hot sweaty climate in northern australia

I hate those trendy people that swan around the shops wearing an ever-so-trendy lightweight scarf wrapped too many times around their neck..... on a hot day !

I always have a throw over lounges. They are easy to wash and quite cheap, and save a lot of damage to the furniture.

Pillows on beds, hmmmmm sometimes come in very handy.

Short little story here:
On a trip to Qatar many years ago, I found my bed was decorated with fruits and a small assortment of chocolates.
Unfortunately, the aircon was down and the choco had melted over the doona. Not a pretty sight!
