We spoke to Erin Shirin, Editor in ‘These Three Rooms’ About leaving a good impression on our guests when we invite them into our homes. We also discussed design and decor faux pas, and whether to be diplomatic or honest if our friends don’t have good taste in interiors. Check out Bor Panda’s interview with the design expert below.

“Most people like tasteful neutral decor, so brights and dark colors should be used with care and caution. You can never go wrong with white walls and engineered oak floors!” Design expert Ariane, editor ‘These three rooms,’ Shared with Board Panda how we can all influence the people we invite. After all, who doesn’t want to show off a little and be known as tasteful in their social circle?

“If you’re not white, try some pretty shades of light beige or light gray,” she adds. Farrow and Ball They offer many colors.

“I’m not against minimalism myself, but minimalism appeals to more people and to my own personal taste. Basically, the more daring you are, the less people like the design. is likely — the more neutral and light it is, the wider its appeal,” Arian explains how it works.

Meanwhile, there are some obvious things to avoid doing if you don’t want to scare your guests. Editor at ‘These three rooms’ Share some of your thoughts on what to remove.

“Walking into a room with every wall a shade of bright red or hot pink or incredibly colorful wallpaper feels like being visually assaulted! And walking into a room with Every wall color is black or a very dark shade, the mood goes down and the room closes in. I, giving it a poker feel,” said Ariane.

“Also, don’t fill your room with patterns and fill every wall with photos/prints/wallpaper. If you want to use patterns, that’s fine, but leave some space so the design can breathe. “It usually does,” he said. It’s best to balance things on the ‘less is more’ side of things.

KristenBellTattoos.com wanted Ariane’s opinion on how to approach situations where we might be tempted to tell our friends that they’ve made some (justifiably) terrible and tasteless decorating decisions.

“If it’s before making a decision or paying any money, I’ll cautiously and gently caution against terrible choices – depending on how good a friend they were, how likely they were to take their advice, And how much time I was going to spend in their house!” she said. However, in other cases, it is best to be very tactful and remain silent.

“If they’ve paid and there’s no going back, I’ll be diplomatic about it. If I don’t, I won’t say ‘I like it’ but I won’t criticize. Design The beauty of it is that people are free to make their own personal decisions, even if they are questionable!”

The ‘Ye Hai, I’m House Shy’ Facebook group has grown almost fivefold since BoardPanda’s last article about it. The community describes itself as a place where people can “be appalled by the fearsome combination of floor-to-wall colors,” “walk into lawns that use car tires as yard decorations” ( ew!), and feel like they’ve lost a part of themselves. His soul because someone randomly hung a ‘Live, Laugh, Love’ sign on the wall.

The group joked that, in this case, they hope the phrase ‘there’s no place like home’ is actually true.

However, the team running things behind the scenes insist that the community’s aim is to shame ugly house designs, not mock those living in poor conditions. There is nothing funny or lighthearted about living in poverty. However, when a person spends money on really weird decorations, they are open to criticism, unless someone is being overly mean.

The mod and admin team note that people should not message group members without their permission. There is a zero tolerance policy when it comes to hate, stalking and harassment. Meanwhile, members shouldn’t spam Team Run stuff if their post hasn’t been approved (yet).

However, not all of these designs are embarrassing and ugly homes that make us want to scream because of how tasteless they look. On #WhateverWednesdays, people can post whatever they want. Yes, you can post nice houses too!

Last time, a colleague of mine reached out to the team running the whole ‘yeah, I’m going to shame the house’ group, and they were kind enough to answer her questions.

The group’s founder, Rhiannon, said she came up with the idea for the group while checking out some real estate listings. “I had a lot of free time at work one day and was mindlessly scrolling through Zillow. I saw a house in such bad taste that I decided to put a decoration to shame ugly houses and for fun. Decided to form the group,” he previously told BoardPanda. .

According to the founder of the Facebook group, Rhiannon, “The most popular reason for embarrassing people’s homes in this group is that we’re all interested in things that are weird and beyond what we see.”

She continued: “We watch a lot of shows on TV about interior design and beautiful homes but we never see anything on ‘crazy’ and ‘just plain ugly’ homes and decor and I believe that’s the reason. The reason we have such a loyal following.”

According to Veronica Murphy, one of the members of the team running ‘That’s It, I’m Home Embarrassed’, Rhiannon created the group during the first year of the pandemic and invited most of the moderators and organizers since then.

“It was a fun way to spend time in quarantine; I think a lot of us spend countless hours going through houses on Zillow, so it was great to see some of the outrageous things people found!” Veronica told KristenBellTattoos.com first.

“Why on earth do so many bathrooms have carpet, weird DIY fixes, or hot pink and lime green kitchens?” Veronica jokes, noting that design and decorating decisions are an expression of who the homeowners are as individuals.

Meanwhile, moderator Fallen Ivaniko said: “We get a lot of mean, funny, and mean stuff posted and some people hate it, and some people love it! We’re not a total shaming group. are because people are allowed to say whether they love the house/decor or not

“The comment section can be hilarious and almost everyone has a sense of humor. We certainly get some rotten eggs but our wonderful admin/mod team cleans up the comments and removes any that are rude or hateful. I hurry.” Fallen added. “Overall it’s a great fun group if you want to laugh, see some really weird houses and decorations, or even get inspiration for your own home.”

It’s fun to be a part of the Facebook group, said the founder of ‘Ye Hai, Maan Ghar Sharmanda Hoon’. “It’s a truly indescribable feeling when someone is able to share a photo or video they’ve taken or encountered during their day that you’ve created out of sheer boredom to contribute and share with others. It’s worth it. I love that this group can be fun and entertaining. Making people smile, that’s really the ultimate goal here. The members of ‘This Is Me Bringing Home to Shame’ are a wide variety of people. The family I never expected, but will always love.
