293Overdecorated

I have very little patience with overdecorated anything. Buildings especially.

  1. Glad I cut my hair today. Whew! That was close.

    1. Haha ๐Ÿ˜€ Speaking about hair cut, my husband cut his hair yesterday and he looks like a leukaemia patient now… (He basically shaved his head, for practical purposes, he says…) Hope you ended up better than him!

      1. It’s summer so it’s practical. Looks like my picture. I have apparently been cutting my own for over twenty years. Cheapskate.

        1. Well, you guys have it good, you can easily cut your own hair, but can you imagine a girl giving herself a haircut? At least, unlike my husband currently, I have some hair to cut!

    1. Thank you for your support! We’ll need to establish a group against overdecorating and for common sense in design ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. I feel the same way about interior design. I was once in a room that was floor to ceiling Versace and it made me want to gouge my eyes out and huddle up in a foetal position.

    1. Poor dear… I feel for you! I dislike hyper-modern minimalist design as much as overdecorated design — I simply prefer the middle way. I like when houses are cosy and comfortable outside and inside, too many ornaments bother me and too few of them too! You see, it looks like I’m never happy and content…

      The photo is however an illustrative example what much historical architecture where I live looks like — I’m not too happy about it. I prefer the wonderfully sober and elegant Scottish grey granite!

      1. I agree. Minimalist is too clinical and impersonal for me. Plus I own too much stuff. I’m all about the happy medium too.

        1. Absolutely! Yay, another sane human being who prefers the middle way in design ๐Ÿ™‚ This really pleases me, because people around me prefer either kitsch or clinical minimalism. My husband prefers the latter, fortunately, he’s incapable of keeping things minimalistic because he’s very very messy.

  4. I don’t know what this building is, but are those supposed to look like lions’ heads? Kind of like stuffed ones. I see the main, two eyes the nostrils. Maybe I just need sleep.

    1. I just spent several minutes staring at the blurry photo (telling myself that I should know better than to publish blurry photos) and I see no lions, but maybe I just need sleep. Or fantasy. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I don’t know what this building is either, I just randomly stumbled on it and took a shot. (And a blurry one for all that.)
