I made a tongue-in-cheek comment on Facebook the other night regarding my "Rules of Decorating" that generated a great little conversation among my friends. So, I've decided to add these to the blog. Be warned, most of them are things no design afficianado would even deign to give thought to. But, I can guarantee, there are homes across the world that will benefit from hearing this.
And, so, Brandon's Rule of Decorating Number One:
It is NEVER. EVER. NEVER EVER EVER, ok to carpet any portion of your toilet. Not only does the idea make the clean freak within me convulse, but it just looks awful. Why do this? If it's to cover a damaged toilet seat or time-worn toilet tank, whatever investment is made in these carpet accoutrements could be applied to replacement plumbing. If anyone out there is laboring under the delusion that this looks good, let me assure you that it does not. So if you are reading this and have, for whatever reason, carpeted your toilet, RUN to get your rubber gloves, peel that cholera infested mistake off your potty, and throw it out!
