Happy April 1st!  What better time to share ridiculous
design fails with you than on April Fool's Day?!

Can you imagine eating breakfast in this dining
room?  I'm dizzy just thinking about it.

This is a perfect example of "More isn't always better."

Austrian architect Peter Kaschnig was apparently going
through a Blue Period when he painted his house:
I feel sorry for his neighbors.

Do you think the neighbors refer to this as The Lego House?

I thought jungle prints were on their way out . . . . .
Maybe they're on their way outside.

Contemporary shower faucets are camouflaged behind creepy eyes.
Do you think it looks like they're crying when the water is on?

At first I thought this was a photo of a nursery:
It's actually a living room with a circus tent inspired ceiling.

This piece of modern art is called "Lyrical Resistance 1":
I call it "Wall Sockets and Extension Cords."

No, this painter isn't working in a bank . . . . . .
He's adding finishing touches to the ceiling of a private home.

Ummm . . . . . well . . . . .I truly have no words:

One advantage to having a roomful of sofa is
that you don't have to invest in floor covering.

Okay, I like aquariums as much as anybody
but I don't want to sleep under one:

Wasn't this settee featured in Lionel Richie's
Dancing on the Ceiling?!

These next 3 custom designed bathrooms are certainly different:

A blinged out commode, anyone?
The only person who might want one of these is Mariah Carey.

Designer Kelly Wearstler created a pair
of furry chairs reminiscent of the 1970s.
To me they're reminiscent of mountain goats.

No, this is not the lobby of a resort casino.
It's the living room of a Houston 'mansion':

Looking for a one-of-a-kind end table?
Barcelona architect/designer Oscar Tusquets Blanca created a
rather uniquely sheep-ish table.  It can be yours for only $50,000.
And, yes, the hoofs are gold plated.

Deer Cupcake sculptures, anyone?
Simple Treats

And today's Ridiculous April Fool's Day Winner:
Design Boom
Supposedly artist Jon Rafman created this room
in homage to Picasso.  It gives me a headache.

Have a great April Fool's Day Tuesday!
