And sometimes there are the sites that make you go, “Hmmm….”
Having limited Hebrew can be very amusing at times. This morning my son informed me that he needed something that starts with an aleph for class – so I gave him a tomato (agvaniot). Turns out that tomato starts with an eyn and I should have given him a stuffed rabbit (arnav in Hebrew). He’s since been told all future letter days are the responsibility of his father.
Other times I get to a website and get to try and figure out what the company is selling. Original Building Design is one of those.
There’s no way he could possibly be selling interior design services. I think the place does wallpaper and drywall work. Still – look at that room. They have twigs in the corner and on the balcony.
[after posting edit] Since I’ve been informed that they also do interior design services I feel I have the right to critique the room above – which is awful in so many ways I’m not even sure where to begin.
The TV, next to the wine rack, next to the awful 70’s white lacquer table and chairs which is so close to the wall it needs to be pulled out for people to sit all the way around it. The furniture doesn’t match in style, color, or design – it doesn’t even flow. This isn’t eclectic, folks. This is just bad.
My favorite room on this site was the red accented bathroom. I have no idea what they were after – but they didn’t get it. Why would someone have a small spot above their toilet tiled? For what? And what’s that weird statue and why a candle and why on the toilet? This isn’t a shelf people!
So of course, they take it that much further. A red backsplash that doesn’t actually meet the edge of the sink and barely covers the wall.
Look down. Yes, that’s right. They even tiled a piece on the floor. Oh dear.
Well, if they are selling tiling, drywall, and other interior renovation – then the site works. Even if I hate most of the design, the work is done well.
But I need to know – is that table with a stone slab on top blocking the fridge? Or is it just me?
