I came across a post about “tacky decorating” and wondered specifically what the author defines as “tacky.” The word “tacky” can mean slightly sticky, but in this case, the author means “in bad taste or of low quality.”
The word “tawdry” usually refers to a person’s habits or dress; is defined as “cheap, gaudy, or showy.” A synonym is “sordid, or shameful.” However, both words can be used interchangeably at times.
Tacky decorating is difficult to describe, but you know it when you see it. Often times as the decades pass, what was once perhaps “avant garde” is now tacky.
