Goldilocks & the Three Beds

March 18th, 2014 · 2 Comments

Once upon a time, a little girl named Goldilocks got lost in the Phoenix metro area.  She was very sleepy.  All she wanted was a quick nap.

She stopped by this Phoenix home, but, alas, the bed was too high.

She stopped by this Tempe, Arizona home, but, alas, the bed was too low.

But when she stopped at this Glendale, Arizona home, the bed was just right.  Sweet dreams, Goldilocks.  The End.

Disgusting Philadelphia Home

February 23rd, 2014 · 13 Comments

Is it too much to ask that if you’re selling your home, you at least put a little effort into making it presentable?

There appears to be at least two bars of soap.  Too bad they haven’t been touched in 20 years.

I have no idea what’s going on in this room.  It appears that there are many layers of paper that are peeling off the walls.  It’s bizarre and creepy.  Did they papier-mâché or decoupage the walls?

Fly strips really work well.  Check out how loaded it is!!  But why so many flies in Syracuse?

Bathroom Design Trends For 2014

December 29th, 2013 · 3 Comments

What bathroom trends will be popular in 2014?  We’ll share a few with you.

Mixing colors in the bathroom will be hot in 2014.  No more monochromatic color schemes.  Mix pink, green, and blue!  And mix in some mold and mildew too for a bit of whimsy.  [Battle Creek, Michigan]

Smooth textured walls in bathrooms will make wiping and cleaning them easier.  [York, Pennsylvania]

Just as people desired great rooms in their living areas, spacious bathrooms will be desired too.  Lots of elbow room.  No more toilets cramped into tiny closet-sized rooms.  It’s all about freedom and movement in 2014.  [Marshfield, Missouri]
