It is so rare to see an albino Bengal tiger! And to see TWO of them is just WOW!

We saw this same mural in our post from September 13, 2008. That house sold in 2008 and the current owners kept the tiger mural for 9 more years until they sold it in 2017!! Here’s the photo from 2008.

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.

No Bare Walls

August 4th, 2017 · 2 Comments

People complained about boring white walls. Then they complained about bland tan walls. So here are some new options.

Exposed brick!

Polka dots!

Puzzle!

Fake mold and mildew!
