Why do so many people buy HUGE, ugly, overstuffed furniture and cram it into a normal size room?
Yesterday I ventured across the street to fetch a tray left behind after the 4th of July and see my neighbor's new basement renovation. I am on the hunt for a contractor to build my library shelves and wanted to check out the workmanship.
I couldn't exactly say, "let me take some photos and criticize it on blog" so use your imagination.
The space plan was awkward, perhaps because of the plumbing and framing already in place. You walked in as through a backstage door, behind the wetbar to the room beyond and behind the theater seating in the screening room. All were filled with what I call "naked fat people furniture". You know what I mean, the overstuffed leather that reminds me of rolls of fat.
The tiny bedroom had a queen size bed and a dresser so large that it hulked over the bed in a very unwelcoming manner.

The problem is that these are very nice people that I will be living near for many years to come and the asked me for some decorating advice. It is all brand new, so my get rid of it and start over won't fly.
My strategy is to keep my mouth shut and pray that they don't ask for any more decorating help.
