‘That’s It, I’m Home Shaming’: 480K Members Of This Facebook Group Make Fun Of Ugly Homes, And Here Are The Worst Of The Bunch (97 New Pics)

Your home might be your castle, but those walls don’t make you immune to bad design and decor choices. That’s where the super-popular ‘That’s it, I’m home shaming’ Facebook group comes in. The brainchild of Rhiannon Pfeiffer, the 480k-strong community gently makes fun of the interiors and exteriors of ugly homes they’ve seen that haunt them in their dreams. It’s all done in a lighthearted way for the sake of fun and to help spread a bit of awareness about aesthetics.

Scroll down, upvote your fave worst pics, and share your opinions in the comments, Pandas. Which of these houses did you love to hate the most? Were there any diamonds in the rough that you’d actually choose to live in? We can’t wait to hear what you have to say.

When you’ve looked through this list, we hope you’re in the mood for judging some more tasteless design nightmares. You can find Bored Panda’s previous article about the ‘That’s it, I’m home shaming’ project right over here

We spoke to Ariane Sherine, the editor at ‘These Three Rooms,’ about leaving a good impression on our guests when we invite them over to our homes. We also chatted about design and decor faux pas, and whether to be diplomatic or honest if our friends’ interiors lack good taste. Check out Bored Panda’s interview with the design expert below.

“Most people like tasteful neutral decor, so bright and dark colors should be used sparingly and with care. You can never go wrong with white walls and engineered oak flooring!” design expert Ariane, the editor at ‘These Three Rooms,’ shared with Bored Panda how we can all impress the people we invite over. After all, who doesn’t want to show off a bit and be known as the tasteful one in their social circle?

“If you’re not into white, try some elegant shades of light beige or light grey,” she said, adding that Farrow & Ball offer lots of these shades.

“I’m not against maximalism per se, but minimalism appeals to more people and to my own personal taste. Basically, the more daring you go, the fewer people are likely to like the design—the more neutral and light it is, the broader its appeal,” Ariane explained how this works.

Meanwhile, there are some obvious things to avoid doing if you don’t want to scare your guests away. The editor at ‘These Three Rooms’ shared some of her thoughts about what to steer clear of.

“Walking into a room with every wall a shade of bright red or hot pink or with incredibly colorful wallpaper can feel like being visually assaulted! And walking into a room with every wall painted black or a very dark shade depresses the mood and closes the room in, making it feel pokier,” Ariane said.

“Also, don’t crowd your room with patterns and fill every wall with photos/prints/wallpaper. If you want to use pattern, fine, but leave some blank space so the design has room to breathe,” she said that it’s generally better to balance things towards the ‘less is more’ side of things.

Bored Panda wanted Ariane’s opinion on how to approach situations where we might be tempted to let our friends know that they’ve made some (arguably) terrible and tasteless decor decisions.

“If it’s before they’ve made the decision or paid any money I’d tactfully and gently caution against terrible choices—depending on how good a friend they were, how well they were likely to take the advice, and how much time I was going to spend in their home!” she said. However, in other situations, it’s best to be very tactful and stay silent.

“If they’ve paid money and there’s no going back, I’d be diplomatic about it. I wouldn’t say ‘I love it’ if I didn’t but I wouldn’t criticize. The beauty of design is that people are free to make their own personal decisions, however questionable!”

The ‘That’s it, I’m home shaming’ Facebook group has grown almost fivefold since Bored Panda’s last article about it. The community describes itself as a place where people can “gag at ghastly floor-to-wall color combinations,” “cringe at lawns that use car tires for yard decorations” (ew!), and feel like they’ve lost a part of their soul because someone unironically hung up a ‘Live, Laugh, Love’ sign on the wall.

The group quips that, in this case, they hope that the phrase ‘there is no place like home’ is actually true.

#12 I’m Not Sure If It Was The Face On The Toilet Tank That Put It Over The Top, Or What…

However, the team running things behind the scenes stresses that the point of the community is to shame ugly home designs, not to make fun of those living in impoverished conditions. There’s nothing funny or lighthearted about having to live in poverty. However, when someone spends money on really weird decor, they become eligible for criticism, as long as nobody’s being overly mean.

The mod and admin team notes that people shouldn’t message members of the group without their permission. There’s a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to hate, stalking, and harassment. Meanwhile, members shouldn’t be spamming the team running things if their post hasn’t been approved (yet).

However, it’s not all design shaming and ugly homes that make us want to scream due to how tasteless they look. On #WhateverWednesdays, people can post whatever they want. Yup, you can post nice homes, too!

Last time, my colleague reached out to the team running the entire ‘That it, I’m home shaming’ group, and they were kind enough to answer his questions.

The founder of the group, Rhiannon, said that she came up with the idea for the group while checking out some real estate listings. “I had a lot of free time at work one day and was mindlessly scrolling on Zillow. I came across a home in such poor taste that I decided to make a group about shaming ugly homes and décor for fun,” she told Bored Panda earlier.

#18 What About This Mid Century Toilet In The Home?

According to Rhiannon, the founder of the Facebook group, “the most popular reason for people shaming homes in this group is the interest we all share in bizarre and out of ordinary things we come across.” 

She continued: “We see so many shows on TV about interior design and beautiful homes but we never do see anything on the ‘crazy’ and ‘just plain ugly’ houses and décor and I believe that is why we have such a loyal following.”

#20 Can’t Tell If This Is A Very Efficient Use Of Space Or Just, You Know, Worthy Of Being Shamed

According to Veronica Murphy, one of the team members running ‘That’s it, I’m home shaming,’ Rhiannon created the group during the first year of the pandemic and invited most of the moderators and administrators then.

“It was a fun way to pass time in quarantine; I think many of us spend countless hours going through houses on Zillow, so it’s great to see some of the outrageous things people have found!” Veronica told Bored Panda earlier.

“Why on earth do so many bathrooms have carpet, strange DIY fixes, or hot pink and lime green kitchens?” Veronica jokes, referring to how the design and decor decisions are supposed to be an expression of who the homeowners are as individuals.

Meanwhile, moderator Faline Ivaneko said: “We get a lot of wacky, fun, and cringey things posted and some people hate them, and some people love them! We’re not entirely a shaming group because people are allowed to express whether they love a home/decor or not in the comments.”

“The comments section can be hilarious and almost everyone has a great sense of humor. We, of course, do get some rotten eggs but our wonderful admin/mod team are quick to clean up the comments and remove anyone being mean or hateful,” Faline added. “Overall it’s a super fun group if you want to get a laugh, see some really wacky homes and decor, or even get inspiration for your own home.”

The founder of ‘That’s it, I’m home shaming,’ said that the Facebook group is a lot of fun to be a part of. “It is really an indescribable feeling when someone is able to share a picture or video they took or came across during their day to contribute and share with others in a group you created out of sheer boredom. I love that the group can provide entertainment and make people smile, that is really the end goal here. The members of ‘That’s it I’m home shaming’ are the extended family I never expected to have, but will always love.”
