I don’t care for the Fifth Avenue Style

I’m a relatively new interior designer.

I spent numerous years in school reading about peculiar interior styles.

I have some that I’ve enjoyed (contemporary condo, old-world estate, Hollywood regency, cozy dollhouse as well as many more). But there is a certain style—as well as I hope I don’t offend you—that I legitimately cannot stand as well as that’s the Fifth Avenue Style. I believe that Hollywood motion pictures entirely enjoy the Fifth Avenue Style because it’s entirely self-explanatory to make sets out of. The Fifth Avenue Style is totally overcrowded as well as makes it self-explanatory to add depth to motion pictures. The Fifth Avenue Style also allows visual mediums to communicate opulence as well as decadence with the sets in the background. I definitely get it. I entirely do. As a visual, Fifth Avenue Style creates a relatively strong image. However, when it comes to entirely decorating a household, I fail to see how the Fifth Avenue Style has any real place in an actual household. Think about it. Every single item in a common Fifth Avenue Style household is severely fancy, placed in random locations as well as is nearly impossible to have updated. How people in the past entirely lived in Fifth Avenue type households astounds me to this day. The Fifth Avenue Style is more like a museum than a home. And who would want to live in a museum? Perhaps you have a peculiar opinion of the Fifth Avenue Style. If so, don’t be afraid to comment. I have to tell you, though, I’m really not a fan of this design. Especially these days. Maybe for a historic household tour, however that’s basically it.
