I guess there’s something to be said for choosing a theme and… um… going all out with it?
I mean really, really going all out.
If you ever wondered what it would be like living inside an algae-covered aquarium…
…wonder no more.
Added bonus: the bathroom is a completely different piece of work:
Sold in March for $1.9 million.
In addition, something just feels all carpet-burny about a place when you have to vacuum the walls and ceiling.
What the everloving heck IS this establishment?! It has this creepy combination of luxury hotel / geisha tea garden / porn palace / mental hospital…
@Denita TwoDragons: It’s in DC, so maybe it’s meant to attract overly ostentatious diplomatic types from countries where the amount of money spent is more important than the result actually possessing any taste?
OK, so that applies to a lot of Americans, too. But I still think the DC part makes it a valid guess.
I signed up at Redfin earlier this week just so I could see photos otherwise not available. Guys… if you think the ones here are bad… the ones there would make you lose your lunch in a heartbeat. OMG! Some people should NEVER be allowed to decorate!!! When, when will such crimes against nature be outlawed?! I personally want a legal means to sue these bastards for assault on the color green – I am outraged!
Even the architectural layout is a loser. There are floor plans for this two-story penthouse that clearly show every last room is its own isolated little world, no flow of space *at all.*
There might be one source of real humor in all this… there is a single *enormous* shade covering the full length of a window wall and it looks for all the world like the roller type of shade some folks still use in bedrooms. You know… the kind that sometimes suddenly WHIPS back up of its own accord, thereby doling out heart attacks to all present? On the scale of the one pictured, these folks could wipe out the entire neighborhood! :P
Just think, you could use a rake to form artistic patterns on the plushy floors, walls, and ceilings. You could copy those pretty, whirly things you’d see after you walked into that sharp corner in the all-marble bathroom…
@anodean: Cool, my second chance to use the word veritable in one day… a veritable zen garden of carpeting. ;)
@anodean: That sharp corner is camouflaged to “weed out the dumb ones.”
