Marc Jacobs Home Collection: Stylin' or Staid?

We're fans of Marc Jacobs, so we keep trying to love his home designs. AT: LA blogged the Peter Vases yesterday, which we like, but we have mixed feelings about the collection as a whole. We love the whole thrift-store-meets-high-design look. You can always spot a Marc Jacobs ad by the Juergen Teller photos. They're controversial, but they work. If he could take this photo of Meg White from the 2006 collection and translate it into a designer room we'd be psyched, but the home collection seems a little staid to us.

We like the designs (especially some of the glass pieces) but they don't differ that drastically from other things we see in home stores. We feel like they're lacking that little bit of edge that the bag and the shoes have going for them in the photo above. To be fair, he is working with Waterford, a classic name in Crystal that isn't exactly cutting edge. What do you think? Stylin' or staid?
