What Was I Thinking?


I am a big fan of HGTV and the other day some one told me about the site's Rate This Space thing they have. Well...today I decided to check it out. Then I decided to put my family room on it. Then I panicked! What was I thinking? Not everybody loves cottage decorating and vintage stuff like I do. People that like minimalism and other styles of decorating are gonna rate me bad. Yikes! Well...I started getting comments and some people wanted more photos. Most raters have been very kind. But it seems some people don't like my floral hooked rug with my floral and checked chairs. : ( But that's okay. Those people probably decorate an entire different way. But anyway it's a fun place to visit, get ideas and check out wonderful ways people decorate their homes. If you would like to see mine go to HGTV.com and click on Rate this Space. My # is 8640877 under Living Rooms. Be nice if you leave a comment or I'll cry. :))

Your room is beautiful! Some of the posters on HGTV's Web site can be harsh! You have a true sense of how to repurpose items and add a dash of new.... and it really works with your style!

Blessings, kari and kijsa

Girl I put my place on there and they were so rude. I did cry and about went broke redoing. Then I thought they can't see and feel what is in my home!

Lynn, your Home is Beautiful and even if you get negative comments, I would take them with a grain of salt. Your Style is Your Style and it should make you happy and feel Creative, Your home is beautiful and I'm sure anyone who visits you would agree. I am not a Big Fan of What "everyone" else is doing or "Keeping up with the JOne's Anyway"lol. Your home should be how you want your home to be and individually you :)

Ditto all the above-I think your home looks wonderful, and if anybody leaves a negative comment, well, let them showcase their own homes lol!!x

Roxie said...

Girl, I love your home and one day I'll be there to see for myself how lovely it is. I'm going to go check out the site and look up your number. This all sounds so interesting.

I do not want to get hooked on that site!!! I can see how hours could get sucked away looking at homes to rate. So, I didn't register to comment, I can't let myself be tempted. I'll just comment here, that I think your room is cozy and welcoming and that I love the layers of pattern!

Mary said...

Hi Lynn -- I'm new to your blog, and I will defintely be over see your room on RMS, and leave a comment!

It is a very scary experience, but there are some really nice people on RMS, and I hope they find your lovely room. What a gorgeous view you have!

Please come visit my blog if you get the chance. My RMS rooms are under the name countrygrl125. I put the name in my room tags, so if you search for it, I should pop up.

Look forward to "seeing" you soon...
Mary

Mary said...

Lynn, just wanted to let you know that I love your chairs and rug! I tried to leave a comment on RMS but was having computer difficulties!

I would be honored to be included on your blog list, and I would love to add you to mine as well.
xoxo,
Mary

Hi Lynn. I am so happy to have found your blog via Mary at The Little Red House!

I am #8546943 on RMS. I have been getting some nice messages but oh yes. There are some real *tough* people on it. YOUR home is beautiful!
I have been so enjoying reading through your blog and seeing your photos.

Would it be alright if I added your link to my pages?

I will return often!

Have a sweet week!

Hugs,
Sue from Rabbit Run Cottage

Oh, I would never post there! Who are they anyways? You are brave, but your home is lovely so I wouldn't give any rude comment a second thought!

I am in interior design and the thing I always tell people is do NOT ask your friends (or Rate My Space for that matter) what they think of your personal style. It is YOUR style and they have no business "rating it" and raining on your parade!

So there. You can tell them I said that.

xo,
Melissa

Oh, I did the same thing recently and paniced the same way! Blessings... Polly

Vee said...

That's a perfectly charming room!

Sometimes I try things that others suggest by opening a pic in PAINT and manipulating it a bit. It's a good way to see if the criticism has any merit.

Other than that, I'm with Melissa. It's your world and who cares what anyone else thinks?!
