Rustic Decor - Scary or Chic?

Since we were all dishing about Domino when it first hit newstands (okay, we still are) let's now dissect Blueprint. What features did you like? Dislike? Overall opinion? Finally, your thoughts on the spread featuring rustic chic decor? I'd like to see these knotty lamps with funky mod shades and a slimmer wood base, so I'm feelin' bits of this trend. It's cute in that charming kitschy kind of way. Just don't introduce the whole deer-head-on-the-wall and I can hang. Honestly though, I don't know if I could rock it in my crib... What about you? Charming or cringe-worthy?
