“Not my style, but…”

4 Jul

Why do people feel the need to say “it’s not my style” then add “but I like it” or “it looks great” or some such when commenting on Apartment Therapy et al.? No one asked whether the house or the room or whatever is your style. If you’d like to share your style, put it up on the site.  The featured space is in the style of the person whose home it is.

Maybe removing this phrase from one’s lexicon can help move our society from the excruciatingly self-centered position (a position that involves craning the head towards the navel) at which it now stands.
