My GOODNESS Y’all!
Who knew chartreuse was so controversial? I mean I guess I had an inkling based on Pete’s reaction, but I seriously do not appreciate y’all backing him up on the playroom. All day yesterday I would get little updates on the comment score of how many people agreed with him.
I’m kidding. I actually LOVED that so many of y’all gave it to me straight, and there was nary a rude comment. I think so far 30% hate it, 20% were clearly trying to be nice without outright suggesting I have lost my mind, and 50% love it. I can live with those numbers, especially after Katherine gave me the term “marmite room”.
You either love it or hate it, and in this day where tasteful, pretty, non offensive design is everywhere (which IMHO is a good and bad thing) I am ok with having a room that people aren’t so sure about.
Thank you all for keeping the discussion lively but not ugly.
To those of you who hate it, you might be right, it might be patently offensive.
To those of you who love it, you are probably right, I probably am a genius.
Either way, I think I should finish up a few projects up there real quick and have it properly shot so y’all can decide for sure. I am working on getting you the source for the carpet- my paperwork is a mess right now. Patience Iago.
And if you haven’t weighed in yet, perhaps you were afraid to offend me? Or maybe now that you have mulled it over a bit more you have made a love it/hate it decision, I would love to hear from you about what you think and why. Let’s try to keep it constructive, but I can take it.
I was so excited to see our items up there with some really great pieces from the other tastemakers involved. I also really like the word “tastemaker”.
I say it kind of like rainmaker makin’ it rain.
I’m a tastemaker makin’ it tasty.
Or something like that.
Other tasty people involved are Tobe Reed from Because It’s Awesome, Lindsay Souza from Pursuit of Style, Lisa Borgnes Giramonti from A Bloomsbury Life, Susan Brinson from House of Brinson, Jonathan Lo from Happy Mundane, and Mark D. Sikes from everywhere.
