Glen Senk and Keith Johnson, purveyors of everything your straight, 30-something, somewhat-happily married female self LOVES to buy at Anthropologie. Oh, and by the way, look how fucking happy they are. Proof that their relationship is better than any of the 5 marriages my mother had.
In the last post, someone left this comment:
Hey Decorno: can you please use your influence to send some help our way? There's tons of anti-gay money coming in from out-of-state.

The answer, of course, is yes.
This is a decor blog that often takes political detours, but this is a perfect example of the intersection of design and politics... and I am going to lay it out for you here:
DECOR IS THE GAYEST THING EVER.
Gay-givity-gay. Gay, gay, gay. If you've ever fixed up a happy little tablescape, if you've fretted over moldings, if you've debated the right shade of white, if you've ever said, "Oh snap", if you watch Top Design, if you love Simon Doonan (who doesn't???), if you're inspired by about 35% of the homes and apartments in every issue of Elle Decor, Met Home, or House Beautiful, well, you are an honorary homo. Sure, that probably sounds all stereotype-y, but whatevs. You and I know that the world of design is a gay world. (Yes, both meanings. I'm so clever!) We all love the world of design because everyone gets to indulge his fantasy of the perfect home and perfect life. But getting to love and marry the person who makes you swoon and supports you and is willing to play the put-the-toilet-seat-down game with you for the rest of your life shouldn't be a fantasy and it shouldn't just belong to straight people.
I am not sure I can convince people who are against gay marriage to be for it. I doubt that. But 'tis the season to outspend those motherfuckers. So do right by our gay & lesbian friends and give a little money today. If Prop 8 passes, it will ban same-sex marriages in California. Honestly? We have nothing better to do than this? Really? Oy.
Click HERE to give today, beacause we need to tell everyone in the decor blog world the truth:
If Prop 8 passes, Elle Decor, Domino, and Met Home will fold, Benjamin Moore and Pratt & Lambert will stop making paint, 1st Dibs will go out of business. Those are FACTS, my friends. FACTS. This is why you must act today.
