Top Ten Worst Design Ideas Ever!

by kathyregini | Comments Off on Top Ten Worst Design Ideas Ever!

Style is not eternal. I was having a really fun conversation with a fellow designer the other day, and we were deciding which bad home design ideas over the years made our Top Ten Most Ugly list! Interestingly, most came from the 70’s and 80’s. Here is what we came up with:

  1. Pastel Colors
  2. Upholstery with Large Floral Prints
  3. Valences and Balloon Shades
  4. Wallpaper Borders
  5. Brass anything
  6. Paneling
  7. Faux Finishes for walls and ceilings
  8. Traditional Recliners
  9. Matching Oak Bedroom Sets
  10. Vertical blinds


I see still see some of these when I walk through a house for a staging consult. Lucky me, I get to tell the homeowner that its “gotta go” if they want to sell the house!
