February 1st, 2010 · 5 Comments

This Swarthmore, Pennsylvania home is so over the top that it’s at the bottom again.  Look at all the stuff piled up around the fireplace?

There’s a banana tree painted on the wall.  In fact, the entire wall is painted to look like a block wall with arches.  Plastic covered sofa!

Overly Grand In Casa Grande, Arizona

December 26th, 2009 · 5 Comments

More over-the-top home décor in a Casa Grande, Arizona home.  Tea-stained walls.  French country chic with requisite rooster.  Yuk.

Words like brocade, tromp l’oeil, fleur de lis, olde world charm, etc. get used a lot to fluff up room descriptions.

Just shoot me.

They might bolster this room’s appeal to more buyers by toning down the French whore house look.

Where are the purse straps?!!  A home reportedly in Mexicali, Mexico.  It’s highly doubtful the Louis Vuitton design is authentic.

Southwest Décor Overload

August 18th, 2009 · 12 Comments

Someone got bit by a rabid howling coyote while eating rotten red chili peppers and then infected this 1996 Phoenix home with Southwest décor.  This wasn’t even the style in 1996.  They must have brought it with them when they moved in.  And specially ordered the aqua blue carpet.

Same room, different angle.  They put the table up on styrofoam blocks to protect the precious blue carpet.

Blue carpet is all over the house.

Even the master bedroom is infected with blue carpet.

Who Dey!

August 13th, 2009 · 3 Comments

I’m not sure the meaning behind the phrase “Who Dey!” but it must have something to do with the perennially awful Cincinnati Bengals football team.  As in ”who are they? have they ever had a winning season?”  This is the main photo for a Queen Creek, Arizona home.  Honestly, it was the best photo they had of the home.  It kinda got first position by default.

The living room features kid’s toys, bright yellow walls, and a used Kleenex.

The owner is walking up the stairs to the loft.  He’s holding a list of items he wants to buy on eBay.  He collects sci-fi dolls, it seems.  NIB!!  NIB!!

Liberace’s Home In Palm Springs?

July 12th, 2009 · 43 Comments

Ultra-tacky, over-the-top, gaudy, wacky, bizarre home in Palm Springs, California.  Built in 1965 and owned by someone with questionable taste.  You won’t believe your eyes.  [disclaimer:  this blog is not responsible for nightmares, flashbacks, or other mental trauma resulting from viewing these photos.]

Let’s first hang out at the wet bar/lounge.  It looks like an old casino.

Family room with ugly couches and a full wall of mirrors.

One of several bedrooms with padded headboards.  Chartreuse is such a pretty color.

The red room.  How many lines of coke were sniffed from that coffee table?

Very unique candelabras flanking the fireplace.

Everything’s red or orange.  It’s like a vampire hang-out.

Gaudy bathroom with sunken Roman tub, pink carpet, pink velour wallpaper, & orange drapes.  Look how high the back is on the make-up chair!

The formal dining room.

A game room for playing poker?  Pink velour swivel chairs!  A scale on the table for weighing out pills and cocaine?

A very pink vanity area for putting on make-up and perfume.  Chanel No. 5, anyone?

Too Much Frou-Frou In New York

April 5th, 2009 · 1 Comment

When is too much too much?  When it looks like this home in central New York state.  Enough with the flowery wallpaper!

How many pillows does someone need?  One head = one pillow.

Ugly flowery couches.  Flowery wallpaper border.  At least the lace curtains don’t have flowers on them.

More flowery couches in the sunroom.  And flowery curtains.
