I lived it. I hated the avocado and/or harvest gold decor. I was really into the big flowered wallpaper. I used contact paper to re-do the kitchen and bathroom walls of the apartments that I rented. Just tore it down before I moved out, so I wouldn’t have my deposit refund withheld. Also had gigantic sunflower stickers on my luggage.
