We all spend lots of time pinning and pulling images of things we like, rooms that make us swoon and inspirational spaces. But sometimes you can learn a lot by studying rooms you DON’T like. I actually ask some clients to pull images of spaces they hate alongside ones they love because together they create a clear picture of what they want out of their space.
So here is a space that I straight up dislike. And no surprise, it’s a Kardashian home (not a fan of them, AT ALL) via Domaine Home. So let’s take a gander at Kourtney’s home, shall we….
Here’s the thing about this house, EVERYTHING is a statement. Everything. There is no place for your eye to rest and make the next statement feel special. It’s just an assault on your eyeballs in every square foot of space. You know I love black and white stripes but this room is TOO much with the patterned floor as well and the crazy lighting topping it off.
MORE stripes! This room feels a little less offensive to me but again, with the bold art and the urchin light fixture it’s all just too much for me.
OMG, this kills me. The rug plus the wallpaper plus the primary colored sculpture and art. This is exactly what I would show someone if they asked me what I disliked in a home. Let the wall be the statement and pair it with simpler, classier art and accessories! GAH.
