Tone It Down

Cute house, but could use some home staging to remove a few (or more) items from each room.  Let’s start with the knotted curtains. [Evansville, Indiana]

A Pot Rack In the Bedroom?

November 16th, 2014 · No Comments

So much going on in this Gainesville, Georgia bedroom.  First, the pot rack.  Why?  Clown in the corner.  TV box used as a window shade?  And more visual distractions.  We’d rather see the wood floors and the two windows.

Don’t Fall In

November 9th, 2014 · 3 Comments

There is no safety barrier to this Des Moines, Iowa basement.  Be very careful.  Yes, on second look, that is a trap door that is opened to the left.  But it’s still a safety hazard if you leave the door up while you’re in the basement.

Kept In the Dark

Perhaps we can add some light to the room?  [Arizona City, Arizona]

Or at least use the flash on the camera.  [Bloomington, Illinois]

We see the light fixture.  Too bad the photographer didn’t see the light (figuratively and literally).  [Mesa, Arizona]

It Has Wainscoting

November 2nd, 2014 · 3 Comments

Let’s start with the positives about this Evansville, Indiana home:  it has wainscoting.  And at least they didn’t do one more twist to knot the curtains.  And for that, we thank you.  Now about the fan, the dog, the cords on the floor, the cord on the ceiling with foil (!!), that damaged wall, the dream catcher, and the dirt.

Organ Transplant

Thank you, Matt, for sending us this unusual Grand Rapids, Michigan house.  The sellers installed a full-sized organ in their home!!  Yes, these are photos of inside the house!  And no, it’s not a church, it’s a house.
