Aspen or birch tree trunks painted in the bathroom.

Too bad they didn’t expand the tiny shower into that space.  Or install a vanity instead of a tiny pedestal sink.

Window drapes in a bathroom shower will get soaking wet.  Smart idea?

Overly dramatic.

And again in another room.

Utterly useless here.  The curtain rods are only 2 feet wide.

It takes more time and energy to throw the drapes over the rod than it would be to pull them to one side.

Too much fabric and too heavy.

Faceless Intruders

When the agents suggested their clients not show their faces when the photographer arrived, they took it literally.  There are no faces.  Just bodies.

Hey, Mister.  Get out!

A Sinking Feeling

April 14th, 2014 · 2 Comments

Today is the anniversary of the Titanic ship sinking.  These Peoria, Arizona sellers are paying homage to the Titanic.  They have a Titanic blanket.  They have a band playing music to soothe the passengers.  They have stuff floating around in the ocean.  A chaotic scene recreated right in the room!

Outdoor Living Space

April 14th, 2014 · 1 Comment

A covered patio can be used as extra living space.  You can take a nap on the patio.  You can wash your clothes on the patio.  You can prepare and eat meals on the patio.  You can read the newspaper on the patio.  Endless possibilities.
