Like Father, Like Sons

November 4th, 2016 · 2 Comments

Father’s man cave. Notice the well-maintained leather couches.

161104a

Wall-to-wall stuff. Check out the “thou shall not whine” sign.

161104b

The father’s son’s room. Completely filled.

161104c

Walls and ceilings are completely covered, thanks to dad’s example.

161104d

Dad’s bedroom. No surprise here.

161104e

This is not how we suggest staging a home when selling.

The father’s teenage son has taken over the guest house, with decorating help from dad.

Eclectic Home In Avon, Connecticut

October 16th, 2016 · 18 Comments

Thank you to our reader Jennifer for finding this very unique home for sale in Avon, Connecticut. There’s a lot to see and lots of photos to share. Enjoy.

The seller appears to have an artistic quality, with embellishments throughout the house. The stair balusters are covered in fabric.

161016avonct02

There are smears and goop all over the kitchen.

161016avonct03

The kitchen, we think.

161016avonct04

161016avonct14

Another look at the staircase.

161016avonct12

Let’s look at the bedroom now.

161016avonct09

Gauze for alarm?
