A few months ago, we at Bored Panda released an article about questionable architecture but this time we're focusing on something more... personal.
The Facebook group "That's it, I'm home shaming" calls for people to share the ugliest interiors and exteriors of homes they wish they'd never seen, and many have accepted the invitation.
Currently, the group has 110K members.
"Here, one can gag at the ghastly floor to wall color combinations," its 'About' section says. "Cringe at lawns that use car tires for yard decorations, feel a piece of you die inside because another person hung up a 'Live, Laugh, Love' piece on their wall, and everything house and décor shaming in-between."
"'There is no place like home', in this case, let us hope so."

We got in touch with the people who look after "That's it, I'm home shaming" and they happily agreed to tell us more about this corner of the internet. The founder of the group, Rhiannon Pfeiffer, came up with the idea for it while she was checking out real estate listings. "I had a lot of free time at work one day and was mindlessly scrolling on Zillow," Rhiannon told Bored Panda. "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 thinks "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." And I definitely agree that's a big factor — we get the same vibe while going through WTF stock photos or the subreddit "What Is This Thing?"
"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," Rhiannon explained.

"Rhian created this group during the pandemic and invited most of us [admins and moderators], we've been friends since summer camp," Veronica Murphy, caretaker of "That's it, I'm home shaming" added.
"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 believes that homes are personal expressions of their owners, and this only makes the bizarre, strange, and downright nonsensical design choices even funnier. "Like why on earth do so many bathrooms have carpet, strange DIY fixes, or hot pink and lime green kitchens?" she asked, laughing.
This Was One In My Local ''dream House Finally Came True'' Group. She Hopes That She Inspires People Through Her Home Pictures
From what she has seen on the group, moderator Faline Ivaneko thinks carpeted bathrooms and kitchens are actually what gets submitted the most. "We get a lot of wacky, fun, and cringey things posted and some people hate them, and some people love them!" she said. "We're not entirely a shaming group because people are allowed to express whether they love a home/decor or not in the comments.
"We also have Whatever Wednesdays, where people are allowed to post homes they love, or even their own home renovations," Faline added.
Faline describes the members of the group as "very fun."
"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," she explained.
"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."
Rhiannon Pfeiffer and Veronica Murphy agree with Faline's description of the group members.
"The community of 'That's it, I'm Home Shaming' is such a fun group to be a part of," Rhiannon said. "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."
