Hope You Like the Old West TOPICS:interiorold weststagingWAWoodinville Posted By: Marty E. April 1, 2013 This is what’s known in the industry as “hyper-targeted staging.” One question though… What’s with the creepy rag doll hanging on the wall in the corner of the bedroom? Unsettling.
Holy cow! It would be like living in a steakhouse, the Howdy Doody set or Woody’s place in Toy Story.
Hmm… I thought “hyper-targeted staging” was when the bad guys ambushed the stagecoach. Could make for a very entertaining rec room… or would that be “wreck” room? ;)
As to the house in general…
Exterior has some interesting forms. The materials, however, leave much to be desired, as does the totally graceless meeting of the walls and roof. The Pacific Northwest is the home of amazing timber, and yet they used composition (perhaps even fiberglass?) siding *and* they painted it in The Most Boring Color Ever?
Interior is nice enough on its face. But either the owners never replaced one stick of the original 1980s furniture (and it’s in *fab* shape), or that’s more staging by the agent, using The Most Generic Mass-Produced Furniture Ever Made. Quandary…. Is the furniture staged or not? I mean, considering the *ceiling* decoration by the fireplace and above the screaming red spa tub (thumbs up for that one, srsly), at least something of the seller is still there. If you’re gonna move out your furniture why leave the ceiling decor?
The copper sheathing above the hearth is eye-catching, though it leaves one unable to hang artwork or a big screen. Perhaps that’s what prompted the Persian carpet display on the ceiling? *Love* the “shocked face” that red tub has, like maybe the last bather was *not* a super model, lol.
Other than that one awesomely fun room, the place desperately needs a personality transplant. And not for a minute do I accept the following two statements from the listing…
“reminiscent of Frank Lloyd Wright with clean, modern lines” – Um, NO.
– and –
“massive sun-drenched open living spaces and miles of decking” – I’m sorry… “sun-drenched”? Smack dab on top of Seattle? Really?!
Maybe the drugs wore off before they could do the rest of the house?
Or wait – the holodeck got stuck like that when they lost their link to the mothership…
@anodean: Holodeck Mishap – Perfect!!!
