pimp my crib: nursery edition

No this post is not about a new MTV series, but I am going to kick off this post with an MTV reference.

If you have ever watched ‘Pimp My Ride’ or “MTV Cribs’ you have found yourself wondering . . . “is this a joke?  can these people’s taste really be this bad?”

A junker car remade into a rolling Starbucks with spinners, a house boasting real saltwater aquariums (made from Swarovsky crystal) in every single room, can these people be serious?  Don’t they have enough money to hire a designer who will tell them gold plated urinals are not in good taste?

I ask these questions all the time.

But what it really boils down to is personal taste.

Whether its mansions, cars, or nurseries, design aesthetics are about personal preferences.

All that to say, the feeling I get when they pull back the sheet to reveal the gaudy paint job on a girls suped up VW Rabbit or open the door to a 15 foot diamond encrusted “Artist Formerly Known as Prince” emblem, is similar to the feeling I get when I ponder whether Abbey will grow up and like her bedroom.

What if she likes metalic leopard print?  What if her heart resonates to the sheen of neon green?  Is it possible that any color brighter than oatmeal will be offensive to her eyes?

These are the thoughts you have when you are working on a nursery . . . will she grow up to like it . . . or hate it?

What if she has “bad” taste?

The jury is still out, but maybe a video sneak attack will bring about some resolution to this parental dilemma:

Consider me encouraged – for now.

. . . . . . .

How would you describe your personal sense of style?

Feel free to talk fashion, interior design, cars, tree forts, martial art of preference, whatever.

    When I played this video Grace looked around for her friend.

    We decorate with lots of wood, baskets and commentary sets.
