Overview

Millions have already been to Gary and Elaine’s. Isn’t it time you dropped by?

Have you ever flipped through the pages of a Pottery Barn catalog and thought, “Who actually lives that way?” Rest assured, you are not alone. Pushed too far by a photo depicting a plate of figs placed under a table, actor and Second City-alum Molly Erdman created Gary and Elaine, a well-heeled and deeply superficial couple living happily amongst abundantly pillowed chairs, giant abacuses, and decorative fruit. Inspired by Erdman’s popular blog Catalog Living, Decorating Takes (Wicker) Balls takes home décor catalog photos and sends them up with wickedly funny captions mockumenting Gary and Elaine, their lives, and their absurdly over-decorated rooms.

I almost peed my pants I was laughing so hard. This book calls out the bizarre, non-functional, illogical decorating ideas that are found in expensive magazines and books. I pick it up when I need a good laugh.
