Dolores Umbridge Chic: Doilies, Teacups & Pink Pink Pink

Dolores Umbridge Chic: Doilies, Teacups & Pink Pink Pink

When I used a Good Question about a chair as an excuse to rail against the common use of "grandma" as an insult and propose "Dolores Umbridge" as a far preferable replacement, one commenter mused that now they really wanted to see some awesome examples of Umbridge-chic. All you had to do was ask!

Although I'm in favor of using Umbridge as an insult the way we used to use granny, I'm definitely not insulting any of these spaces. They all feature elements Dolores would love - delicate china, damask, ornate furniture, antique accessories, plenty of pink, and doilies galore - used in modern, non-fussy ways.
