    Default A Collector of ’50s Décor Finds an Apartment to Match

    Cullen Meyer, 27, began collecting 1950s décor at 12, and by the time he turned 25, he harbored the great dream of any collector: finding a place to display his stuff. The Herman Miller credenza on the right is Mr. Meyer’s only “nice” piece of 1950s furniture, he said. He usually goes in for kitschier things, like the Majestic lamps sitting on top of it.

    Visually interesting, but it would make me dizzy to have to live there.

    I like some pieces here and there, but overall it just sucks.

    This might just be the ugliest house I've ever seen on this site.

    Back in Oakland I knew a handful of committed hipster collectors like him. What differentiated their homes from his, though, was that the folks I knew also had genuine taste, not to mention interior design and decorating skills. Their homes or apartments were kitschy yet comfortable, welcoming and charming, with good color schemes and workable layouts. Like comfy pop culture museums you could really live in. Being there really felt like going back in time, with an added dimension of humor, affection, and nostalgia.

    This guy, on the other hand, has no clue. His place is a dischordant, uncomfortable visual riot that just doesn't work on any level. The kitchen especially makes my head hurt and the bedroom is ghastly. Ugh.

    A little too Pee Wee Herman's house on LSD but I love a lot of color in rooms. His is over the top, but I wouldn't mind it for a place to party!
