Pot Racks Gotta Go

October 14th, 2017 · 4 Comments

Pot racks tend to dominate a real estate photo. It’s best to remove them when selling. Or at least the pots.

Odd placement of the pot rack.

A million canisters. Why so many? Flour, sugar, brown sugar, cookies. That’s four. Then what else?

Visually distracting.

Stoned & High On Glue

October 1st, 2017 · 4 Comments

From the town of Roosendaal in the southern portion of The Netherlands…a home filled with glued-on stones. Enjoy the tour.

The owner decided to decorate the walls and surfaces with rocks and stones and pebbles.

Check out the bathroom.

Well, at least your guests can’t do lines of coke on the toilet tank lid.

The grotto.

The Scarface picture is a nice touch.

They started adding rocks to the ceiling.

There is unique art work throughout the house as well.

The main bedroom.

What imagination.

Such artistry.

Check out the leopard chair in the entry.

Where do you buy such stones in The Netherlands? Does Amazon Prime deliver there?

Stone-washed jeans in the laundry room?

If this home was in Phoenix, you would need a leaf blower to clear the dust away from the stones.

This bedroom’s better than the others.

Sanitized kitchen.

Wash and dry.

Emergency Kits

September 18th, 2017 · No Comments

Help yourself to a Mountain Dew.

Safety first. Two fire extinguishers just in case.

Entry without carpet on the left. Kitchen in the back left. Dining in the back right. Living room with stained carpet to the right.

Dining room with extra carpet. And emergency kits.

The dark carpet helps camouflage the stains.

Hallway, no carpet.

Opposite view, hallway, no carpet.

Bathroom.

Guest bathroom. And there’s the guest!

Bedroom.

Another view of the bedroom. Did we have to see the bras?

Back yard. With outdoor carpeting.

Trash Day

September 11th, 2017 · 3 Comments

Save! Yes, save everything. Keep it all.

Collect more.

Put everything on display.

It’s fun to sleep in the living room when the bedrooms are full.

A case of foam lunch trays might not be enough.

Keeping the blinds closed makes a Phoenix home feel cooler in the hot summer.

Fine dining.

Kinda ironic that the trash can is empty.

At least the sink is empty, thank you.

Tidying up the kitchen was obviously a back burner agenda item.
