This is just batshit crazy.



Europeans? No more stylish than us. Give them access to Ikea and a few buckets of paint and they'll Vern Yip the fuck out of their houses, too.

ooof. Lived in Europe much of my adult life and lemme tell ya - there is at LEAST as much bad taste over there as there is here. And heaven help us; scrap-booking has recently taken off on the other side of The Pond. The horror...!

"Give them..." quite possibly best sentence ever. Thank you.

Shawn said...

THANK YOU. I'm like, European does not always = stylish and classy.

What the HELL did someone do to an otherwise lovely carved Art Deco cabinet?! Nooooo!!

Jennifer said...

Vern Yip would never do that. It's not fasian (fake + asian = fasian) enough.

Now the others? They would totally fuck that shit right up.

Eurotrash!

Jules said...

I'll bet none of that stuff (lamp, candles, vases, birdcage, flying butterflies and birds...is on that cabinet on any other given Wednesday. It looks like the stylist got a little punchy. That said, even without the riot of aaccessories the cabinet is a bit much.

Jean said...

In the words of the immortal Dorothy Parker, "Tonstant Weader Fwowed Up." That is much too much.

It's very ladies'-magazine, isn't it. It makes me think that the secret agenda of traditional ladies' magazines (Better Homes and Gardens, Family Circle, etc. etc.) is to serve as a quick anti-depressant, or so is my theory.

This has that typically desperate "Aren't We Cheerful!" theme to it.

Oh Anon 11:24, you beat me to the punch! That could totally be the cover of some magazine hanging out next to the TicTacs with a "NOW ONLY $1.99" bubble in the upper right corner.

It is just awful. But, I do like the pink radio. I wonder what kind of radio it is...

amap22 said...

but there are bensimon tennis shoes underneath the cabinet. so the euro design wins over american design who do not have adorable shoes under their badly painted cabinets

Radio is a Roberts, damn near indestructible.

Personally, I think Vern Yip is on some crazy drug that hasn't even come out yet.

i must be a loser cause i like it! especially for a kid's room with white walls and other, understated choices.

i guess my belief that i have taste is just a lie i tell myself as i drift off to sleep.

or maybe you guys are LOSERS.

Oh zakary...Fab-u-lous.

Anon 10:39 - It's important to bring a sense of humor to the party.

You kind of sounded like Chris Farley right there. I am not sure that's what you intended.

I LOVE CHRIS FARLEY...

i'm glad someone gets my sense of humor AT LAST.

jen said...

Okay. I like it. Not for me, but for my fun-crazy-colorful-zany friend Ree, TOTALLY! And it would look really good in her house! And I'm not afraid to say it (like some other *anonymous* peops).

I like the colors, even in that combination, but not all concentrated into one piece of furniture. It gives me a migraine.

A Print A Day said...

it's like the oilily version of furniture!

paola said...

Er, the more I look at it the more I like it...

Especially that lamp.

Am obviously not a stylish and classy European.

zakary has my dream job.

Meander said...

ok, I'm really scared to voice my opinion on this one but I'm gonna step out on a limb and do it anyway. Decorno - please don't ban me from your site forever!!! I kinda like it - I actually think it would be the perfect piece to make my house look even more like an acid trip gone wrong. . .way wrong.
