STYLE EX­PERT HAS EYE ON DE­SIGN

Edmonton Journal - - HOMES -

Can wood pan­elling ever be chic? How many throw pil­lows is too many? And should toi­let pa­per fall over the roll or un­der?

These are the ques­tions that can keep an in­te­rior de­sign junkie up at night. For­tu­nately, Queer Eye ex­pert Bobby Berk has the an­swers, at least how he sees them. In a video for Airbnb, Berk gives his rapid-fire opin­ions on 20 top­ics.

Yes, wood pan­elling can work. Fifty throw pil­lows are too many. And any toi­let pa­per that falls un­der the roll isn’t fit for bath­room con­sump­tion.

Berk also weighed in on what cur­rent trend we’ll re­gret in 10 years.

“Mauve,” he says. “Just like we re­gret­ted it when they did it in the ’50s.”

Other de­sign crimes in­clude vene­tian blinds and hang­ing Christ­mas lights in­doors, while Ja­pa­nese toi­lets and 1970s decor get the thumbs up.
