The day the music died.


I was looking through old magazines. Here's a treasure from 2007. This is when everything jumped the shark.

You know, I'm as a big a hater of Imperial Trellis as anyone, but I kind of like it in yellow.

But not for a sofa. I don't like big patterns on sofas. Too many surfaces and angles colliding. It's a migraine waiting to happen.

HATE that someone (a stylist?) put orange books next to the orange vase.

I like the sofa. And I like the screen. Not too big a fan of the zebra-print cowhide thing, or the orange book&vase combo. If there's a book on my table, it's because I'm reading it, not because the cover matches the rest of the room.

I think I just puked a bit in my mouth - that color combination is not good. I'm so over Imperial Trellis, as is everyone, but especially on a couch like that!

Wrong lampshade for that lamp.

It's a perfectly pleasant room, generically "decorator-y":

--Imperial Trellis, check;
--zebra rug, check;
--pierced porcelain, check;
--token "I found it at a thrift store and painted it white" ethnic/rustic object, check.

I am saying this in my best you-tube-girl-defending-Britney-Spears-voice: "Leave Imperial Trellis and zebra alone!!"

hello gorgeous,

You know that Chris Crocker ("Leave Britney Alone!") is in fact a boy, right?

Be glad you didn't do trellis wallpaper. Once Sherwin Williams comes out with a version...it's jumped the shark.

I've already seen a near-identical knockoff, by Duralee or Fabricut, can't remember which.

You ask rhetorical questions?

It's not that there's anything wrong with Imperial Trellis or zebra prints. It's the laziness they represent: the decorative version of just shrugging and saying: "I'll have what he's having."

Laziness, and a lack of curiosity to see what else is out there. Or a lack of nerve.

I love how the copy on that page says they chose the mirror-topped table "for its reflective quality." YOU THINK?

Even the table is generic: the same gilded iron and glass design, with the semi-circular stretchers. It's so...available. Anywhere.
