Is it old? Is it new? Is it tacky? Is it cool? Is it a typical 1950s middle class house?
Or a restatement of the Bauhaus aesthetic?
Is it a setting for a traditionally chandeliered, bay windowed bedroom?
Or an angular, multi-colored room of repose?
Is it a funky, modern sculpted, distressed floored music hall?
Or an overblown, Erté-infused Art Deco luxury bath?
Or maybe even just classic kitsch, aka folk “art”?
Or is all this confusion merely a misdirect to draw attention away from…
OK, people, let’s hear some theories – what is it? And what, God Help Us, is that… that….. hatch for?! =:O
Heh. Anyway, hopefully people realize that commenting is fixed and come back soon.
@Marty E.: Hmm… could be. Could also be multiple personality disorder.
Maybe it’s really just DBC: Decorating By Committee.
But that hatch… ó_ò
I wouldn’t peg Angelenos as being big preppers, but I’m guessing that hatch is the entrance to a bomb shelter. Given the eclectic styles in the rest of the house and the over-the-top artsy-wannabe feel of what they are leaving behind, here could be yet another facet of their diverse tastes.
@Frodo: OMG, I completely misread this item’s real purpose! I just this second realized it’s actually a… Yard Roomba!!! But one that seems to be in need of service…
@Emerald63: Yard Roomba? There is a small place with some grass (photos 49-50), but not where it’s sitting.
@Frodo: Like I said… “seems to be in need of service.” You know, because it managed to rip up the entire lawn, less than single handed?
Or maybe a Yard Roomba is just as frightening as a hatch, as in, what’s scarier than a wood chipper, aka a convenient body disposal? That’s right. A robotic wood chipper! Mwahahahaha!!
