Who can afford a custom decorator to do these? For that matter, who has the space to dedicate 1000 or more square feet to an obsession? I wish I had saved the links because my mouth is still agape. Top of the line cabinets (you know those ads you see in the magazines and drool over-they would turn their noses up at them), multiple wooden desks with marble tops-(oh I mean crafting areas), hand woven rugs under each 800.00 ergonomic chair. The latest "In Color" graces the walls. Of course, the prerequisite "word" is hand calligraphied on the wall. Imagine. Create. Restore. What is the word of the month, people??? GAG!!!
Every paper is color coded in graduated hues, in slip cases. Every embellishment is in a jar labeled, turned just so on a shelf. All the tools we lust over, they already have. Set just precisely so on turntables (sometimes even having multiples so they don't have to sweat by getting off their fat asses and reaching for it on the other side of the room). Nothing is out of place. No scraps of paper. No misaligned shelves or containers. No glue bits stuck on the table. No cat hairs. No human hairs for that matter. It's hermetically sealed. It's not used for crafting. It's just for show. "Lookie lookie at what I have".
There is no Wal-Mart, no Target, no Ikea in these rooms. Martha is their idol (zombies all of them). Nope, a decorator was called in and given unlimited budgets and in a "glitter dusting" it's all done and they have grand openings with big pink bows and fussy tea cakes. Maybe a make and take to have as a souvenir (designed by Martha, of course). One "crafter" said her hubby so loved her and made this creative bungalow for her (since he is an "in demand" lawyer (her words) with 50.00 manicures-he did not make this for her). Ha! Maybe she consoled herself with this for the inattention from him. She could surely have tons of attention from the "country club parasites" or maybe she put out once a week for him? So she earned it??
