Rate My Space’rs Hate My Bedroom ~ LOL! Big Surprise, Huh!

Hello, Everyone!
Well, I decided to post my newly painted bedroom on RMS.
Knowing, all along that this was probably a mistake.
We all know that this site isn’t kind to any style that isn't modern.
But WOW!!
They truly hate it. LOL!!
I have even managed to offend someone!! :)
Just got a comment from a lady saying that she is Offended that I have a flag displayed on my rocker.
Now, I love my Country. But I'm not going to be so easily offended. Maybe if someone had it as a rug on the floor.  But not because it is folded and draped in a rocker.
Oh well, cant please everyone.
And she certainly has the right to her opinion.
That is what makes this Country Great!
Any who…
If you want to visit my Master Bedroom at RMS, Click Here.
All I ask is, try to be kind. Hehee!
Take Care & Talk Soon,

Thanks so much, all you amazing ladies!!
You have raised my rating!
I no longer have a 2.
So big hug to you all.

Should I feel guilty that I sort of cheated to get it?! LOL!!!
Nope ! :)

I think it looks great.. You are so right, you can't please everyone..Even if offended,,, isn't it better to not comment than to say something that isn't nice or could be said in a more positive manner?? Just my opinion I guess... teehee.. Have a great day, Tina

I absolutely love the flag on your chair Tam!Keep it just as beautiful as you have it!Cant make everyone happy!Just please yourself sweetie!You did an amazing job!
big hugs michelle

oldepearprimitives said...

OMG, I love it! They can have their modern style anyway. That style seems to come and go. You are a brave woman to post it though, so I give you a big thumbs up for doing it. I very much like it and those haters can go kick rocks. :)

Big hugs,


Unknown said...

Oh, I do plan on keeping it there, Michelle. :)

I agree, Tina.
But the thing with RMS is, they think their opinion and taste is the only one that matters.
Her comment wasn't the worst I have gotten over the years.
I think there are some people who just love to be rude.
I just laugh it off.
Also 90% of the time, the rude people never have any photos of their home loaded.

Thanks Gen!

Wow, if anything your room reflects your great love of our country - boy...some people must not have anything better to do. I have to agree with Tina - if one doesn't have anything nice to say...keep it to oneself!

I love your room and the flag on the chair!

The Wooden Acorn said...

You are hilarious. I love your room...especially the primitive old clothes that hang on pegs.

Country/primitive decorating is definitely a "niche" type of style. You have to love the style and know what it is about.... so with that being said.... you were very brave to participate in RMS. I love that you did that. I commend you and give you an A+. I will go rate your space at the website also.

I love the room Tammy. It's so warm and cozy. And the flag on the rocking chair makes me think of Betsy Ross stitchin' away.

Brenda said...

I love it Tammy! Nothing wrong with having the flag on the chair!! I think it looks wonderful!!

Your bedroom looks just right. Don't worry about that show, they haven't seen colonial or prim rooms before. The show is more geared toward country or modern I think. I love what you have done with the bedroom and your house.
Don't sweat their comments, just know that all your blog buddies here love it. We are what matters.
Country at heart

It will be a cold day in you know where before I ever go modern!!

Tammy, your room is beautiful, you have great taste and everything you do looks pretty darn great... I love the flag in the chair.
have a great day

At Home With Amy said...

Just goes to show you Tammy that some decorators have no taste! lol!
I love your bedroom and so do a lot of your other friends! We don't care what strangers think now do we. lol!

Beckyjean said...

Hi Tammy~

I love your bedroom. You are a brave lady to put your room out there for all to rate. Everyone is entitled to an opinion but those that don't like your room are so wrong!!

Have a wonderful day~Becky

dee begg said...


Oh my, you were very gracious in your response. I don't know how you resisted asking Nancy if she looks down her nose much at others! And who is it for her to say how the flag of our country can be used? And to say it's not for decorating with is incorrect. I have one hanging outside on my front porch for not only the symbol and respect of what it represents but also as a decoration.

As for your bedroom, I love it. I didn't see a comment about it as a whole, just about the flag being used. Hmmmm....maybe whoever is rating needs to looks at the cohesiveness of the room. I mean if you want to rate a space, it should flow together and not have to subscribe to a particular style. Your room flows very nicely and that's what it should be judge well it's put together! WoW! What a bunch of hyporits at RMS! if you don't decorate in the style they like, it has to be bad.

I can appreciate a modern bedroom that is put together well...not my taste, but I can appreciate the symmetry and beauty of it. Oh my, you are a very brave woman!

Have a good day.

Hey Tammy! I just left a comment on how fabulous the room looks. Give me a break, upset about the flag? At least you're proud enough to display it in your home - not defacing it or burning it like some others have. I think your room is wonderful!

Janet-Olde Crow Primitives said...

Hi Tammy. I think your room looks great on there. The flag looks good too. I had a look at some of the other things there and they are WAY too modern for me. What color did you use on the walls? I love it!

Unknown said...

Hi Janet,

Thanks so much.

The paint is by Sherwin Williams and the color is called Squirrel's Tail.

It is the same paint color I have throughout my home.

Living room, dining room, etc.

But for some reason it does look lighter in the bedroom.

That could be because the walls were so dark before. :)


PS. Thanks so much Everyone!! You all are the Very Best!

My Colonial Home said...

Oh Tammy your bedroom is perfectly PRIM/COLONIAL...what's wrong with these people.
I love it.

I honestly thing HGTV doesn't think any style is good except modern like you - they never even show anything remotely Colonial/Country or Prim.

Glad there are so many of us who love it!


Farmhouse prims said...

I love, love your bedroom, it is gorgeous, I would be honored to have my bedroom fixed up like yours.
It is prim perfect!!! Lecia

Traci~Moon Gypsy said...

Oh Phewy, those RMSpacer's don't know a great room when they see one, LOL..

I used to watch HGTV all the time, it seems to have changed in the last couple of years...All contemporary/modern decor now, I guess they need to go with the flow. BUT, I don't have to... :)


jennifer768 said...

Tammy your bedroom is beautiful !If anything it shows your love for your country ! Hugs,Jen

TheCrankyCrow said...

When you first posted your bedroom redo, I told you I loved it - and I did and still do. And, if I had my choice of an HGTV designer redoing my home, or you redoing my home, I'd choose you. (And I don't think I'm alone there....) As for the flag issue - crimeny - if flags weren't to be used for decoration or display, the vast majority of the USA-lovin' souls out there are in big doo-doo.... :o) Like I said on RMS, you rock...
Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

The Prim Colonial said...

Loved your PT....good work there! As for RMS, they should have it segmented into decor types; you would score at the top for sure! I must admit, I really want some of your wonderful boxes, I have become a box person it seems of late! Lovely, as always, thanks for the inspiration! ~~ Beth

Countryfolk Keepsakes said...

Tammy, your bedroom looks fantastic!! I love it!! Heck, pay no mind to some of those silly comments left to you on RMS.
Seeing a photo of Old Glory lovingly draped over a chair is not offensive whatsoever. But seeing a photo of Bill Ayers standing on our American flag... Now THAT is extremely offensive.

Never So Simple said...

What do they know! I love your bedroom and I love the style!


Kimberly said...

Hi Tammy, Don't let negative comments, people or OPINIONS take one minute of your happiness away!!! Your blog, home pics including your beautiful bedroom reflect you and your love to make your home cozy and welcoming!!! You are a doll to share your joy with us :) Chin up and go have fun! All My Best ~Kimberly

Kendra said...

Love the bedroom. How wonderful that you still use and treasure (not that I have come to expect anything different from Prim Folks) the bed that your Grandfather made for you. My Grandfather was a carpenter also and the smell of fresh cut pine still comforts me. I have many pieces that he built that I usein my home today.
Very nice room and I love your LR as well-got the wheels in my mind turning!

Mary said...

us prim gals gotta stick together. Cheat on prim sister!!!! I gave you 5 stars and then gave Nancy a piece of my mind, LOL. Oh dear, I hope she is lurking here. :o)
