Um. I don’t think that’s an authorized usage of Disney intellectual property.
I kinda suspect that isn’t, either, but at least Bert doesn’t seem to be up to no good.
Hey wait a minute this looks like a totally different room than the first photo, but that looks like a reflection of the naughty Mickey piece in the mirror. Or maybe it’s just a miniature, mirrored version of the same piece? Confusing.
Nice. Another appearance of the suggestive seating to really round out the decor in this place.
Stunning place, but why on such a narrow lot? Expensive site on the water or a golf course? Nope. This is no high-end neighborhood. There are old 2 story homes desperately in need of paint and 1 story brick bungalows, including right next door with a homemade wooden wheelchair ramp. Strange place to build such a high concept home.
Anywho, I love the “aged” wood flooring inside and the weathered version on the balcony. And it’s nice to see “modern” decor that looks ~gasp~ comfortable! But I still don’t get leaving one’s dishware on open-air shelves or storing cookbooks above a stove top, exhaust fan or no. Greasy residue… ew. The industrial style kitchen isn’t my thing, but it’s pretty cool how the island top, the same color as the floor, seems to disappear when viewed from above.
About that painting… In the main “naughty” mouse pic note the wood chairs on the far right. They’re the same ones on the far left of the media shelf pic. It seems the “reflection” is at a 90′ angle to the full scale piece. So… a smaller version? And reversed?? Whatever. What’s equally strange IMO is the presence of the main image (sans Mickey) in the same house with a kids’ bedroom, complete with tiny kid-sized chairs. Adding Mickey only compounds the confusion for the little ones. I sure wouldn’t want to be the one trying to explain it to them… or not.
@Emerald63: Actually, the smaller “Mickey Mouse” in the third picture above isn’t identical – the composition is essentially the same, but the execution is much cruder. One must conclude that the smaller piece was a study – presumably one of many – which culminated in the final version hanging in the living room. Setting aside one’s natural reaction to the thought of stubbornly painting many iterations of that picture until one finally felt they’d got it “right,” I suppose it might hang in the children’s room as an example of “Try, try again.” Or not.
@anodean: Good God… you mean there are multiples of that… that… thing? Oh well, that many more charges to add to the copyright infringement lawsuit, I suppose.
