The "Plus One" Post (Where My Husband Weighs In)

Jessamie over at Bird and Branch Redesign has come up with a fun link party involving... wait for it...our husbands' opinions.  We're supposed to show some pretty design pictures and have our significant others weigh in with their thoughts of the rooms.  Brace yourselves.  My husband has zero filter.  I've learned to embrace it, but it can be a bit disconcerting if you're not used to it.  So here goes.

Too much going on.  Epic fail.  I imagine the person that lives in this bedroom to love all things Paris Hilton and bought all their furniture at multiple drag queen estate sales.  The combination of the Charlie Brown floor, pink curved headboard and faux fur rocked me between nausea and a small seizure.  The window looks like it could be nice, some of the art pieces look interesting and the black chair is ok.    




I like the ceiling and the wood floor.  The zebra print rug is just a time bomb waiting for its first wine stain explosion.  Chairs look stiff and uncomfortable and any skin that comes in contact with them would stick or start sweating instantly.




This isn't bad.  The wall covering is nice and the colors are soothing-like a bedroom should be.  I don't understand the logs in the fireplace.  Fix that sucker and make it work.  The chandelier looks a bit like a daddy long leg spider.




Soothing colors, warm floors and chunky crown molding.  Good start.  I think I would step on those curtains and pull them down eventually. I get the pooling thing, but only for windows that you don't step around.  I see these coming down on me in the middle of the night when I try to sneak off to pee.


Jesus, a naked dude and half naked girl smoking a cigarette.  Really?  Don't like the color combo or the patterns.



Love the crown, doors, ceiling, moldings and floor.  The yellow couch, cat and zebra print I can live without.  I don't mind the black chairs.  



This bookcase rocks albeit a bit impractical.   Not sure how you get to them, but it looks cool.



Cool kitchen.  Not a fan of gold color of the knobs but the hardware (minus the color) is pretty cool too.  I am not neat enough to have open shelving.



I like this kitchen.  Marble back splash is nice looking...

I think I was in this VIP suite in NYC once with Ludacris.  Just kidding. I actually like this.

And there you have it.  Thanks to the hubs for participating and toning it down.  I was a little worried about what he was going to write but I think it was pretty PG which is good.  It's always fun to ignore see a man's perspective of things.  They really are different creatures aren't they?  God love em' though.

  4. Lol! I used that first picture on my post as well, the hubs was not a fan. It's interesting to hear what our hubby's think of all this stuff, I like reading these posts.

  7. Hilarious, my friend. I really liked the pattern play in the room with the naked woman fondling herself. Funny, I didn't even notice that until I read his comment. I was more interested in the nice use of the color red, which I normally HATE. Men.

  8. I love this post - great idea! And your husband is very funny. I actually agree with most of what he said! Funny how so many impractical things can look so pretty but be total asshat choices in reality ;)
