The 'Circus-Inspired' Trend

JOY: You're never gonna believe this one.
JANET: What?
JOY: Livingetc is trying to make us believe that the newest, hottest thing is circus-inspired decor.
JANET: Yeah, right. What do they think, we're idiots?
JOY: They believe it's, and I quote-- "ushering in a new trend for fun, colour and loads of show-stopping charm."
Why just look at this lovely example they show on their website...

JANET: Blechhh... Ooops, I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.
JOY: Nice. How 'bout this quirky set-up?

JANET: Please, I don't even like bowler hats when they're ON people, I certainly don't want to see them hanging from my ceiling--
JOY: and LIT nonetheless. But give this a chance....look, all you need is a carnival horse, a steel baby crib on wheels, a few ill-placed balloons and you're set!

  1. I swear, there are people out there who float ideas like this circus decor nonsense just to see how many people will come along for the ride. Thanks again for pointing out that the emperor has no clothes.

  5. The one circus look I love is the big tent-wide stripes carried up to the ceiling. But this stuff is atrocious.
