Warped Childhood, Restoration Hardware-Style: VOLUME II

  1. Guest says:

    I love all of these names! PLEASE tell me they are fictional, and not real Belle Meade names.

  2. Tara McDaniel Brooks says:

    I must repeat the earlier comment – the names are AMAZING!!! Please keep these updates alive!

  3. Sarah M says:

    These are HILARIOUS! Love it!!

  4. Nunu Hurt-Doyle says:

    hahahhahhahaa!! you made my morning. i was all grumpy too!! better than a cuppa!

  5. Tyanna says:

    over-the-top HILAR!! Love!!

  6. Jenna Francisco says:

    Sheesh…many of these look like they were inspired by the grandpa’s hobbies. One reality that’s clearly missing is that kids LOVE the Avengers sheets they spy at Target or the hideous Angry Birds toys all their friends have. While we can help shape the look of kids’ space, they need to feel that they can show their own identities, too.

  7. anr says:

    Volume 2 equally witty and less mean-spirited! I love!

  8. MommyTesters says:

    I now believe that there is a true purpose for adult diapers. Thank you for my Monday giggle.

  9. Traci Ling says:

    You kill me with laughter every time!!!!

  10. Stapler Confessions says:

    Fabulous! Thanks for giving me the giggles.

  13. Kathleen Bell says:


  14. Cecilia Bramhall says:

    ROTFL! Those are just hilarious! Thank you for starting my day off with a huge smile.

  15. Sharon says:

    Absolutely screamingly funny. I have sent both on to friends and everyone loves them. My daughter (two children under three) sent the blogs to me after I brought her the HR Baby and Child catalog!!!!!

  16. Jenn AJennuineLife says:

    I’m not sure if I should be honored or offended that my daughter Hadley’s name made it into the pretentious ranks. I’ll choose honored and know that she would scoff and tear these beautiful rooms to pieces in mere seconds!

  17. Dr. Casey says:

    The rooms are gorgeous…dont really get the humor out of trying to make fun of them. Beats walmart or target decorations any day of the week:)

    • purejoy says:

      That’s the point. They’re gorgeous and worthy of a fairy-tale novel because most of us only have half the budget to even decorate Target-worthy.

      • Brant David says:

        You would spend your money on this junk if you could? That tells me why you don’t have much money.

    • Brant David says:

      Dr. Casey, please step into your Wayback Machine and return to the dingy England of the 19th century whence you’ve come to inflict your nonsense upon us.

  18. Ahnnie says:

    Brilliant! Wish you could make it into a coffee table book with pictures. I’d be first in line.

  19. Megan Karetny says:

    This series is absolutely fantastic! We need more! haha!!!

  20. Andrea says:

    I was really hoping you would do another of post about RH. This one did not disappoint. Hilarious.

  21. Lesley Warren says:

    Awesome! And I too have absolutely swooned over there rooms. However the fact that they are just plain boring has kept me from mimicking them in any way.

  22. Wendy Lane Bailey says:

    Brilliant, and yet, oh so close reality in my part of the Eastern Seaboard.

  23. Krysstyna Shields-Schmitt says:

    I’d LOVE to sleep in the “Garret!!”!!

  24. RRRegena f says:

    oommggg..love your dry wit..and the names!!! too much

  25. Emily says:

    Bravo! In the one about Sinclair and the shoes, there’s GOT to be something said about those dresses. Hmmm…something like:
    Nanny was out sick so Mummy ironed my dresses THE WAY THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE ironed. Completely impressed with herself (and her single domestic chore of the decade), she framed the result as a daily remainder of her hard work.

  26. Jean says:

    Even better than the first installment!! You’ve outdone yourself.

  27. Gertie says:

    Love it. So funny!

    But really, aren’t the rooms really kind of creepy?
    Like maybe these kids are orphans sent to live with their eccentric grandfather (who doesn’t like children) in his spooky, cluttered mansion?

  28. Christina says:

    This is a hater website. So easy I guess…if you can’t ever afford it……make fun of it. Awesome…two thumbs up..you’ve grown up so much since grade 9.

    • fob says:

      I think, mayhaps, you have missed the point. These bedrooms are stylists’ ideas of what wanna-be-wealthy people think wealthy children’s bedrooms look like. I will take it that since you think they are realistic, that you are one of the wanna-be-wealthy types. Actual wealthy people do not decorate their children’s bedrooms in this way–the rooms are very nice, but they don’t look like adult bedrooms with whimsical themes. These are bedrooms designed by people who don’t have children to try and guilt people who don’t have money into spending money that they don’t have so that their children won’t know they aren’t wealthy. Yes, it’s funny (and, yes, I meant all the double negatives).

      • Estate Manager for the Wealthy says:

        Actually, they do….and their children have better manners than to make fun of people that have more, or less, than they do.

  29. Katie James says:

    Please take a joke “purejoygetalife”. Life is too short. Don’t read it if you don’t have a sense of humor.

  30. Katie James says:

    Hilarious! Not sure why some people have to make rude comments. If you can’t find the humor in it, don’t read it! I think your brilliant! 🙂

  31. b4pangea says:

    These rooms are tasteful, understated, adult and classy; as
    are the catalog children pictured in them, engaged cooperatively in charming -and tidy- creative and intellectual pursuits.

    You don’t get what those of us with real, live children find
    hilarious about that?

  32. Finley St Claire Worthington says:

    I am completely convinced that the rude comments come from the same people that think other people don’t like them because “they are just jealous”. This is hilarious.. Don’t take yourselves too seriously.

  33. KMR says:

    Can we talk about the white-padded walls that Matilda Century-Fox resides in?

  34. Ron Fazekas says:

    purejoy–Learn to spell- the word is “plain” and a question is followed by a question mark.–The fact that people CAN afford such foolish bedrooms for their kids doesn’t mean they SHOULD!–A kid needs a room with linoleum floors and furniture that can get scratched.–He won’t sleep better in a $2,000 bed than a $200. one.

  35. Fonda Rush says:

    absolutely delightful! i just moseyed over from Vintage Rescue Squad, and look what i find! i will be spending a little more time here. hopefully, i will find more unique stories within!

  36. T. Kenney says:

    Laugh-out-loud funny!!

  37. Anon says:

    You should check out this blog (which I actually really like). She goes through basically the same images but gushes about how much she would’ve liked these rooms as a 6-year-old!


  38. CheTh says:

    You should write a children’s book.

  39. a2z says:

    Please show us the Clinton-Soros-Obamabilt rooms!

  40. Stacy Curran says:

    I’m so glad I found these – totally hilarious! I LOVE RH and would shop there if I could afford it, but I can’t, so it’s fun to see you make fun of them 😉

  41. Packing Tape says:

    A&R Box Packaging provides many types of packing tape. Packing tape is most commonly
    used when sealing up boxes for storage and transit. A&R Box Packaging sells packing tape at very competitive price

  42. Sugar Nest says:

    Heeelarious! Love the names too…karen

  43. spinetingler says:

    “then move on” says the person taking the time out of his/her busy “Dr” schedule to read (and comment) on a blog entry mocking his/her taste.

  44. Ali says:

    This is hilarious! I’ve always thumbed through the magazines, admiring the lovely decor. But, I could never figure out what was so off-putting about the images. If it were up to my daughter she would have a complete My Little Pony room, with a diamond encrusted rainbow on the wall! We’ve come to a happy medium.

  45. Brant David says:

    It’s kids’ furnishings for brain-dead boobies. Is that how you define wealthy people?

  46. felishaw says:

    I don’t think even rich kids would enjoy these rooms. No color,no toys,yeah this is joke worthy alright. What’s sad is you DON’T get the joke!

  47. So reminiscent of Edward Gorey. (Reminds me of The Gashlycrumb Tinies). Perfect.
