There’s something a little off-putting about giving an award for the ugliest interior of the year, but we come across so many worthy of the “That’s Rather Hideous” designation this year that it would be a shame to not be reminded of the year’s worst. These are something more than the mere misstep, these are the comically bad interiors of 2011. Way back in early January, we claimed that this purple-carpeted Tennessee living room (above) would go down as the worst room of 2011. With the year almost at an end, we have to say we haven’t seen much worse. Still, at least one buyer disagreed: the place sold in May for something less than its $12.5M asking price.
