The Looming Shadow

You might expect a home with an asking price of $1.35 million to have nice photos.

Ha ha ha. That was a good one.

Not only is there an ominous shadow looming over a large portion of the frame in a number of the pictures of this home, the sellers can’t even be bothered to tidy up.

If that pantry doesn’t say “luxury living,” I don’t know what does.

    Almost everyone has taken an “oops” picture of the floor like the 1st one here, but most folks know not to feature it prominently anywhere, let alone where they’re trying to sell their home. Gaah!

    Decent enough looking place, though that hall is awfully loooong and I had to laugh when I saw what I think is the power cord from the “wood burning stove.” I do like the entry door and surrounding windows – very nice. Woulda liked to have seen pics of the kitchen, but hey, they only let you post so many, right? And that avant garde floor shot just had to go in!

    As for the mess… sometimes it’s just nice to know that even people with more money than I have can still be total pigs. ;)

  2. It looks decent, I especially like #9 with the alternating rugs going up the hallway. The bathtub – at least they got it bright and shiny clean for the picture. Too bad they didn’t remove all the products on the edge as well. That room has a lot of potential, but they really need to style the rest of the room to work with that tub. Some nice sage green tiles, wood toned shelves, that kind of thing. It is just as eyesore as-is. Looks like they got a deal on a nice granite surround and ran out of money on decorating the rest. I would not complain about having a pantry, it’s on my list of must-haves for the next place. The little stove is adorable too.

  3. What’s funny about this is that the picture of the floor seems to have been taken at the doorway to the trashed pantry. Doesn’t that sort of double-down on the decision to show it at all? :D

    @Samme: Agreed, there is mucho potential for the bathroom. My first concern is the tap being located right next to the TV. *Not* a good idea. They should be at opposite ends of the tub or the tap could be on one of the long sides of the tub. Beyond that, the cosmetic changes you suggested sound good to me, too. Perhaps making the TV opening somewhat higher, they could include a recessed shelf for the bath products? At least some sort of nice box or basket for them, anything to keep them from just cluttering up what’s obviously an expensive stone surround.
