1. Bead Curtains
Bead curtains might work for a psychic or palm reader, but they are not for normal people. Not to mention, they are IMPOSSIBLE to walk through without getting tangled up in them.
2. Shag carpet
You are not Austin Powers, sorry.
3. Whatever this pattern of unfortunate carpet is…
There is an upside. You won’t see any stains on this staircase anytime soon. They’re all hidden in the pattern.
4. The combination of wood paneling, shag carpet, and taxidermy.
This is a good look if you want visitors to think you live in a 1970’s time warp. If that’s what you’re going for, mission accomplished.
5. Animal skin rugs
Sure, we all know the rug’s dead, but there’s always that .00000001 percent chance that they might come back to life. At least that’s how you feel in the middle of the night when all the lights are off.
6. Loud polyester upholstery
Laying on a couch should be a relaxing experience. Not one that makes you want to cover your eyes and scream.
7. Neon inflatable chairs
Inflatable chairs were never a good idea. One sharp poke and bye bye chair!
8. Tapestry couches
Trying to decorate around a windmill couch is only gonna give you a headache.
9. Plastic covered furniture
No one likes stains on couches, but sometimes you have to live a little. Take that risk, unless you want to make noises every time you adjust yourself.
10. Matching everything!
Matching your belt and shoes is a good thing. Your curtains and bed spread?! NEVER a good thing. Unless you’re going for the ’80s motel look.
11. Animal prints
Animal print might have looked cool if you were a bachelor in 1996, but that is probably not the case anymore.
12. Tiki torches
Tiki torches should only be used in Hawaii during a luau. There’s really no point to them because they don’t stand up straight. One gust of wind and your beloved tiki torch is going to set your entire house on fire.
13. Lawn flamingos
Come winter time lawn flamingos look especially strange chilling in the snow.
