"I'm here on my ass watching HGTV in the name of "research". My research has led me to the conclusion that if the lady from Decorating Cents showed up on my doorstep I would probably give her a squirt of pepper spray." Mama FidelI think the only designer I would welcome into my home would be Candice Olsen (provided someone else was paying). Her designs are quite nice. Plus she reminds me of my ambiguous but super friendly high school gym teacher. I fear everyone else would paint my rooms "chocolate", which is code for shit brown. Or attempt to decoupage wine labels onto my dining room walls. *
The other night husband and I were watching some kind of bachelor pad redecorating show on HGTV and they actually put leather tiles on a bathroom floor. The designer was all "Oh, they are soooo durable!". I'm not exactly sure where that designer dude tested the "durability" of a leather tiled floor but my guess is that there was someone with "Mistress" in front of her name in the room with him. Husband just kept shaking his head and head and mumbling about the destructive properties of urine on leather.
*If you have chocolate furniture and wine labels I'm sure it looks beautiful.
