Design Pet Peeve: Zebra rugs

March 6, 2009

I don’t get this craze at all! Will someone explain this to me?

I’m not out everyday picketing the streets for PETA or anything, not that this is even real zebra, I just don’t get this fad. I think it’s pretty ugly. I KNOW IT’S IN RIGHT NOW! I’m sorry. I can’t like everything because it’s in. I may change my mind in the future. A woman reserves the right to change her mind at anytime. ESPECIALLY a woman LIBRA. So there. 😛

Design Pet Peeve: Design Snobbery

January 8, 2009

I guess the biggest and most important pet peeve I have is design snobbery. I hate it. Don’t worry about what everyone else thinks. Do what is right for YOU. Don’t worry about status symbols or trends unless they truly make YOU happy. If you like to hang up mass-produced posters that everyone else has…DO IT! If you think carnations are the most beautiful flower in the world then…USE THEM!  If you want to fill your apartment with all Ikea pieces then NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO JUDGE YOU! Drape your entire room in circus tents for all I care. As long as it makes you happy then DO IT! DO IT! DO IT!
