My Five Favourite Ugly Things - Interior Decorator
I thought that whatever wasn’t in my taste was ugly. In poor taste or kitsch even!
Some may call it bliss, but I most certainly prefer the feeling being enlightened gives me. Before I became a decorator, when I was simply someone who liked pretty home and décor things, I thought I had good taste.
When shopping with friends over the past year I increasingly find my point-and-comment “That’s pretty” met by a “No.” or “Not for me” which really is a polite way of saying “No.”
It is then that I started to realise the things I used to think were obviously and universally ugly, became quite pretty when I started to appreciate what they could be used for.
Here are the five things I thought were ugly until I became a decorator:
1. Mirrored Furniture
Beautifully feminine and elegant!
4. Animal carpets
5. African Dutch Wax Prints
