They Like To Go Big In Texas

October 14th, 2012 · 11 Comments

Photos sent to us from Jennifer.  Thanks, Jennifer!

Go big or go home, they say.  Or go all out in your own home, as seen in this heavily decorated house in The Woodlands, Texas.  Looks like a shabby chic gift shop/antique store.

The owner can’t figure out why maids keep quitting after one week.

Even the carpet is busy.  The seller is sitting down in the bottom right area of the photo (faced blocked to protect the innocent).

Could make for a cool bed & breakfast.  But when selling, might need to tone it down a bit.

    You sure this house is for sale? this isn’t a costly bed and breakfast place?

    Karen, it’s for sale. $290,000.

    All I can think of is all the dust that crap is collecting! WOW

    This home, while not decorated as I would like it, has had a LOT of time and money spent on it, and I would imagine has become like caring for a beloved child! I’ll bet she makes wonderful desserts, too. I would like to be invited over!
    (As for staging for selling…I don’t know what anyone could do with all of that decor while waiting to sell!) :-)

    I didn’t even see the person in the picture, it’s like one of those where’s waldo books.. A new edition called, “Where’s the Seller?” LOL

    I’m glad you liked the pictures! ;)

    Oh, and when I orignally was trying to send the pictures to you, they were taken with a phone or something equally as bad, and there wasn’t nearly that many, I’m glad I had to wait to send them. lol You would of missed the picture with the china cabinets filled with more flowered covered stuff. lol

    I wonder how many years it took her to get her home just like she wanted it? I hope she had some time to enjoy this, even though it would drive me insane. It reminds me of pictures I have seen of Victorian England.

    If you can ignore all the stuff, the house itself looks like it has a lot of potential. Redecorated in a simpler style it could look very nice.

    My friend’s house was decorated like that, jillions of flowery things in every room. And Thomas Kincade prints EVERYWHERE ! And yes, my friend made amazing desserts,too. She also kept her house spotless.

    It does look Victorian, and I admit my own house and the one we owned before had a scaled down version of this Victorian look. Trying to pack all those things to move is murder! That’s why I’m going completely minimalist and contemporary in our next home. I’ve had my fill of Victorian, though mine was way scaled down. In one photo, it showed the open plan of the hallway upstairs overlooking the lower floor where the owner was. I loved that open look.

    It actually looks beautiful if one loves Victorian! I’d love to stay over for a bed and breakfast, and take a tour browsing all these antiques! But as much as I love Victorian, it’s too cluttered for my taste!
