Ok so either Mary Kay lived here or Barbie.

Colleen said...

It's Barbie's Dream House!

Karen said...

I wonder if it was always all pink, or if they painted it that way just prior to putting it on the market. You know, for buyer incentive ...

Vic said...

Why is this house for sale? Did Barbie and Ken get a divorce?

Mrs. CPA said...

We looked at a house like this once. They even had pink LIGHT BULBS in all the fixtures.

Jared & Lisa Unruh said...

Ummm...I hope it's mostly primer?????

Mindy said...

Now I'm feeling rather lucky that our house only had wall to wall dusty rose colored carpeting (in every room) when we moved in.

T said...

the Pepto Bismol house... I think I'll skip it.

Meg said...

Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahaha...pink...hahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahaha...oh...gasp...hahahahahahahahahahahahaha...same...cough...house....hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha...passes out.

JOUK said...

Either there was a special on pink (buy one shade, get several shades either side free) or someone has taken photos of the inside of Barbie's house. . . .

But I am thankful for small mercies - at least the furnishings don't appear in the photos. We can, thankfully, only speculate on the varying shades of pink the owner chose to team with the walls . . .

Walking With Scissors said...

Looks like someone vomited up an entire case of Pepto Bismol all over that house. My retinas are burning! They're burning!

ShaggyRed said...

I'm thinking it's the cubist interpretation of the inside of a bubble gum bubble...


...or someone really hated white.

Lind Family said...

Gag!

ladyfi said...

I love it - it's so over the top, so exaggerated, so gloriously unlivable with... Got to admire people who really know how to do things in a big big way...

My daughter and son and all other kids (no matter what gender) in the 'princess' stage of life would love to move in there!

Mombi said...

Did she get tired of painting by the time she got to the kitchen? Seriously, if you've gone that far in your devotion to pink, why not go all of the way?

Bess said...

i think I may be sick

Going Crazy In Michigan said...

I dont see a problem....what am i missing?...

lol

evepaludan said...

Suburban bordello?

Cat Nap Inn Primitives said...

I think each of those photos could use a little more color...like say....PINK!!! (say it like the church lady on SNL)...*smirk*...lol...

Shawnie said...

"My colors are blush and bashful. I have chosen two shades of pink, one is much deeper than the other. Pink is my signature color."

Name that movie!!

Holly said...

my sister's house looked very much like that when she bought it - even the carpets were pink!

Crochet by Momma J said...

Did the Easter Bunny explode?

Julie said...

I was overwhelmed, for a moment there, until I realized that these people have only BEGUN...

blossom, blush, carnation, coral, flower, flushed, rose, salmon, cerise, coral, fuchsia, raspberry, rose, salmon pink, shell pink, shocking pink, scallop, magenta…

and from crayola… shocking pink, ultra pink, neon pink, pink sherbet, piggy pink, cotton candy, pink flamingo, mauvelous, melon, salmon, razzle dazzle rose, , tickle me pink, wild strawberry, wild watermelon...

yousuckatcraigslist said...

Bess, it's okay if you're feeling queasy ... there's plenty of Pepto-Bismol on the walls. Just lick them.

jen. said...

I LOVE IT!!! (seriously) All pink would totally entice me to buy a house.

libwitch said...

Its a shame, because the house might have actually been nice, had the owners not been so focused on one color. Excuse me while I go look at paint swatches in the blue/green family. I need to get that out my head, thanks.

Contrariwise said...

If you're going to be sick, why don't you try some Pepto bismol

J-Rap said...

Steel Magnolias, Shawnie.

You know that shelf near the paint counter at home depot? The one where they put all the clearance mis-color paint? I think that's where they bought all that pink. It's got to be. Nobody really chose to live in all that pink. Really.

Thoughts?

Shayne said...

I have two wing chairs I'd love to sell the owners of that home! My mother-in-law is very into pink and two of her chairs landed in our home when she retired and downsized her living space.

Saretta said...

Oh, c'mon, some of that's got to be mauve or lilac...don't you think?

Reminds me of a childhood chant "ink, pink, you stink!"

Jayne said...

I once viewed a house that was painted wedgewood blue. In every room. With (I swear to god) white plaster reliefs on the walls. I even went back to view a second time and took my mum and sister because they thought I was exaggerating...

nausea, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach, DIARRHEA!!

Anonymous said...

I wonder if the sane members of the family hit out in the green kitchen all day. Actually, it could have looked very nice, depending on how they decorated. Pink is a warm and uplifting color.

Aim said...

Really? Really? Pink. When I was a kid we went to an all blue house. I have never forgotten it. Every bit of furniture was blue too. I really wonder what their furniture was like. This is just scary. But then if I could my house would be all plaid. Do you think that my kids could grow up normal in a plaid house.

Leisha Camden said...

WHAT did their furniture look like??! :-o

ShortWoman said...

Oh come on, at least she took down all the Hello Kitty stuff you just *know* had to be in this house!

I just can't imagine having the furnishings to go with this home. If it had those pink light bulbs, I would suspect it had been some sort of "party house" as nobody could possibly live that way.

blissfullycaffeinated said...

Hideous.

That is all.

D~ said...

"Pink Panther lives here."

Megan NZ said...

WOAH! I'm a pink girl but that is WAY overboard!!!! Headache city here I come!

Megan NZ said...

Shawnie - that movie is Steel Magnolias. The line is spoken by Julia Roberts. WOOHOO! What do I win??

Stephanie said...

Do my eyes decieve me, or is the back hallway in the 6th picture down the same shade of green as the kitchen?

A pink obsession, with a lime green fetish?

mmmm, pretty

Colleen said...

you all know what would fix this ...

SNOWGLOBES!

Someone important said...

MY EYES!!!

Shira-chan said...

I have a friend who's pink-obsessed... practically everything is pink. Her dorm room is furnished mostly in pink (probably the only reason she hasn't painted or wallpapered it pink is because we're not allowed to).

Something tells me her house is going to look very much like this one day... haha.

Chris said...

Oh
My
Goodness
*argh*
I won't be able to sleep tonight, Barbie will be chasing me in my dreams with a can of paint ...

Virginia said...

I am morbidly curious to see what that house must have looked like with furniture in it.

I am betting that all the furnishings were pink too...

Anonymous said...

isn't there justice in the world, anymore? (shakes head and looks down...)

Jomamma (judith) said...

I'm thinking black furniture in this one...

Maybe they'd knock 9K off for paint.

Cottagecheap said...

I am positive this is NOT what Mellencamp meant people. Little pink houses for you and me.....

fposte said...

I'm another who kind of admires this--they've actually done quite a nice job with the painting, they've varied the palette, and I bet they absolutely love it. Which is the problem, as apparently they love it too much to realize that they need to paint over it if anybody else is ever to own the house.

Family Fielding Brown. said...

Hey that paint just seems to have gone such a long way, it seemed a shame to buy another tin in a different colour.

The Honorable Mayor of Bethville said...

Subtle. I like it.

FarmWife said...

Shawnie, Steel Magnolias. Glad I'm not the only one who thought that immediately!

My 7 yo daughter would LOVE this house! It's like her bedroom (which is exactly the same bright pink in some of those pictures) exploded all over that house.

Fab-u-lous!

Geek in Texas said...

Owwwww. I think I'm going to be sick!

Catalina said...

Oh lord, pink in every single room! That would drive me nuts! This person must've gotten Barbie and her design team to paint the house.

Amanda said...

All that pink almost blinded me to the fact that one of the bathrooms HAS NO DOOR.

Almost.

Anonymous said...

I was handling it until I got to the green. Oh hell no! And then more green! So what you're telling me is that - that was no accident!!

Karin W said...

I painted both bathrooms in my house a deep pink like the first bathroom (Sherwin Williams "amaryllis") and I loved it - my husband had other thoughts - but when we were thinking of putting our house on the market, the first thing I did was paint the bathrooms with a more neutral color (I don't like white so I painted them "honey"). Pink is such a controversial color, I wouldn't have even considered leaving it pink on the market.

Anna said...

I love it!
I would buy it.
Its just so pretty,
I mean seriously,
who doesnt love pink?!?!

Emma said...

My house was like this when we moved in - but green not pink... urgh...

Shawna said...

Aww man, they totally missed a great opportunity here. They needed a pink toilet, sink and bathtub, like the ones found in my apartment! (Srsly, my bathroom is like a throwback to the '70s...no, wait--I think it actually IS from the '70s!)

Knatolee said...

Mother. Of. God!!!!!!

saucyitalian said...

Its a house for Breast Cancer awareness...maybe all the money will go to the Susan Komen fund
