Trend Report: Election Decoroyalty in Domino

Domino is one of my favorite design magazines* so when the new issue featured election decor (framed political posters, etc.), my knee-jerk reaction was, “That’s swell!”, but then I remembered a greeting card I recently bought that says, “I cherish the initial misconceptions I had about you.” (I’m saving it for just the right person.)

If campaigns are like courtships, I can’t handle seeing all of my exes hanging on the wall (although if their heads are mounted taxidermy style I might be be cool with it).

A different Domino story profiles a space whose owner clearly has a thing for the Queen of England. I call it Decoroyalty and it reigns supreme. How’s an image of the Queen Mum different from Palin posters in the Wasilla P.D. locker room?

If democratic elections are like the dating game, an old-fashioned monarchy is like Murder She Wrote, a show that seemed to go on forever but was harmless enough and reminded many of their Nanas.

Only masochists want a daily reminder of past what-might-have-been’s, but everybody likes photos of their Grannie (except maybe Christina Crawford’s kids).


* See how I named one right off the top of my head? That was really easy.

  1. Election decor! I never thought of that. I decorate with The Queen and also with Madonnas,( the religious ones, not the singing and dancing ones ) but election decorating is new to me…and cool. I need a Nixon, right now.
