Taste is certainly a personal preference; one person will look at something and see beauty, depth and inspiration, whereas another person can look at that same thing and see it as bland, boring or gore!

Take a look at these decor images and decide which you see: beauty or gore!

In our opinion they are decor disasters and we are left asking 'what were they thinking?' (And in some cases, we do have to questions the qualifications of the decorating team!)

1.

We thought we would ease you into this blog post gently with this first image...

Now, we love decor coordination as much as the next person, but is matching your sofa to your wallpaper taking things a bit to far?

We do appreciate the colour theme running through this room, but the camouflaged sofa was just too much!

2.

We're not sure where to begin with this next image!

Covering the stairs with shag-pile carpet wouldn't be the first idea that springs to mind when we want to decorate our hallway.

And the mix of yellow and brown is a little too garish for our taste!

3.

Words escape us...

All we are left asking is 'WHY?'!!!

4.

Another fine example of matching your furniture with your wallpaper.

Would you attempt something like this?

5.

This next image could be something you love or hate...

Would you want such large trees surrounding your bed?

6.

Can you spot the sink?

The designer of this room has some serious questions to answer!!!

7.

At first glance this next image looks like it is misplaced in this collection of decor disasters, however when you look a little closer, you may notice an installation faux par...

If you haven't spotted it yet, take a closer look at the shower; it has been installed upside down.

8.

The moment you buy some nice lettering for your kitchen and after you put it up you realise it now spells 'FAT'!

This image shows the importance of picking the correct carpet for your stairs.

This is an accident waiting to happen!

10.

Another example of words failing us...

What is that in the centre?!?

11.

This next one is slightly creepy.

It may have seemed a good idea at the time to reuse your jeans like this, but I'm sure that was followed by regret once completed!

12.

Oops.

This wasn't thought through properly.

If you are going for a raw look in your living room, you may enjoy this next image.

We really aren't sure what they were thinking when they designed and put this one together.

Doubling as a wine rack is rather useful though!

14.

Where does the sofa end and the carpet begin?

All we can hope is that this is a rather old image and that the owners have since updated their decor.

15.

We wanted to end with this lovely image.

At first glance it looks like a wonderful space for relaxing and entertaining, until you want to open your kitchen cupboards and drawers and you realise they are inaccessible!

What did you see; beauty or gore? Did any of these images inspire you to make some changes around your home or scare you away from decorating altogether?

Happy decorating,

Elm & Blue
