Over at Bird and Branch Redesign today is a link party that I thought was way too much fun to pass up. Jessamie is hosting a party of the "things he says" where bloggers are showing their favorite design photos to their plus one's to see how they will comment.
Disclaimer: I will start this by saying that my husband is a wonderful man. Wonderful. The most wonderful husband and father ever. (insert Aaaawwwwws here.)
My husband also happens to be the type of person that doesn't always notice...let's call them "the details." This works for me and against me in many ways. For example, when I haphazardly painted a million paint samples on my bathroom wall and it stayed that way for what seemed like forever to me, he barely noticed. Not even so much as a "Hey, I see you're testing paint samples." Nothing. Big plus. But, if I get my hair cut and colored, get a manicure, clean the entire house, repaint the living room, reorganize the closets, and rearrange the furniture all before he gets home from work, he won't notice either. Big minus.
So, here it goes. An unedited interview with the main squeeze in my life...
I like the wallpaper here. What's with the gold bananas? Next.
It bothers me that the chair is not centered in the doorway. Other than that it's nice. I don't really dislike any one thing about this room. Move on.
What's with the fiber optic light? I see the tree table base there. It's not my taste, but I'm sure it works for somebody. Next.
This I don't like. The pillows look like giant cotton balls. The blue lamps seem out of place. They seem south western. I don't like the art. I can see though that it has some of the blue from the lamps in it. What's that thing up there? Seems like an odd place for a chandelier. Shouldn't it be in the middle of the room? That's it. Next.
Too dizzy. O.K. Move on.
Nice. Very nice. Like that sink. What do they call those sinks again? Country sinks? I like the windows. A lot of light.
Too uncomfortable. What do you do with all the pillows when you sit? Throw them on the floor? Not practical for a six year old and ketchup and cookie crumbs. Next.
Where's the window dressing? No privacy, no style. I don't need people walking up to my window and looking in. What is that a giant pom pom? I got nothing else.
The wallpaper on the ceiling and the shades don't match. Wallpaper on the ceiling? Get rid of those chairs. They look like I'm going to sit on them and they're going to collapse.
Way too dark for me. The stripes are too bold. You need a flood light to light it up. Can I get my coffee now?
