That would make even Jonathan Adler's eyes bleed.

How? He's blind.

Those laser cut walls could be right somewhere......so are the random mirrors behind them.

But 'scuse me, I cannot think right now because my eyes are glued to Queen Liz's safety pinned lip.

All distractions aside, the repeat pattern of Queen's crown, the laser cuttings & the branches, then softened with the blue puffs - FAB.

They both look like they were decorated by a hippie on an acid trip. And it must have hurt to break all those mirrors in #1. Eeeeeuuuuuuwwww, no.

I rather enjoy the first photo, those colors are rad.

They used the patchwork sofa in Guantanemo, to force confessions.

It looks cold and uncomfortable.

The patchwork couch is not attractive in the traditional sense of the word, but I think it would be kind of comforting because it's be just fine for the cats and the dog and the all-natural, organic free-range version of Cheeto dust to get on it. So it'd be attractive in that it would be less worrisome to have around than something good looking, especially at the beach house or place where men and children are allowed.

The sofa looks like it's covered in different colors of velour or some other velvet-like crap, so it probably makes dust and pet hair look even worse.

The first photo rocks!

Here's my picky take: In the second picture, I like the sofa and the chairs. I just don't love them with the coffee table, floor lamp and small mirror, as the overall effect is too cold.

As for the first picture, I love the Sex Pistols poster (hell, I have one). I just don't like the red twiggy things in the vases. Too much going on there.

I think they're trying too hard.....trying to be cool -but it's just ugly.

Isn't this Mark Homewood's (from Designers Guild) house? I'm surprised everybody hated it so much. Did you guys also hate Liza Giles' home??(not that this one is as good, but the style is somewhat similar). I had liked this apartment very much when I first saw it in Living etc., now I'm questioning my taste because of you guys.

I saw this on Desire To Inspire ages ago. What a snooze. And some other ugly patchwork couch was in Country Living. Patchwork and saftey pins, what a hot granny mess.

It looks like an entry in a reality show, where the team has to decorate a room based on what they find in a Goodwill store.

I really want to leave a comment, but I seem to excel at being obtuse. But here goes - #1 is ethereal, but Her Majesty is so recognizable that she's distracting. I don't understand the second one; it doesn't look like a real place to me.
