Have I Got A House For You!

31 Dec

Sometimes I just see something so hilariously delightful that I can’t wait to share it. And this is hilariously delightful.

I love looking at house listings. On Realtor.com, ZillowHooked on Houses or Curbed…it doesn’t matter as long as I can get my fix. I admit it: I’m a looky loo. Whether it’s good or it’s bad, I just can’t get enough of taking a peek in other people’s homes. (Neighbors: Be warned. If your house goes on the market, I will go to your open house.) So, when Curbed shared In Pictures: The Year’s 13 Most Gloriously Hideous Listings, I was in. Here are some of my favorite moments from their slideshows:

1.Um, that’s a lot of chintz. And a lot of forest green carpeting.


2. In the words of Depeche Mode: “Your Own Personal Jesus”… over the mantle? 


3. In more over-the-mantel weirdness, I’m digging the shiny red coffee table but the lion pouncing out from the above the fireplace? Not so much. 


4.Where animals come to die…and live in a basement with florescent lighting. (The person who is responsible for this room should be stuffed and mounted in it.)


5. A room like this is why I’m terrified of draperies.


6. Those chairs. No. Just…no.


7. I’m not gonna lie: I know a couple people who would like to have this room in their home. I’m married to one of them. 


8. Is this Daddy Warbucks’ house?  Yikes. It’s like a bad wedding venue. Except that it’s a house.


9. I have a great idea: Let’s put the weapons over the urinals!


10. I’m sure there was a time when this was really cool. Now is not that time.


Hope you liked my (least) favorite rooms. To see them all, click here.

    i think 9 is my favorite. there is something hilariously poetic about axes and knives hanging over a urinal.

    And you grew up with another one wanting #7.

    This is hilarious! Did you find these on a website? If you actually saw these in person I’m impressed! Can I have your autograph?
