"BUYERS ARE TO ASSURE THEMSELVES"



I don't see anything upsetting at all in this listing that Jessi found. Nope, nope, it's all fluffy white clouds. Tra la la...

ah, camo-kid decor. No doubt this room was occupied by a 12-year-old who favored orange vests and assault rifles.

they put the caution tape in the wrong romm..that dark room with the fireplace looks like a crime scene...what IS that on the carpeting?

GaryM said...

"CAUTION" tape for a chair rail...why didn't I think of that???

Certainly one of the "greenest" houses you've listed so far. Is that Astroturf in the living room?

That's near where I live! How exciting, lol.

Oooookay. That's just bizarre. I mean, *really* bizarre. Because it's not there as an afterthought; it's very carefully placed, perfectly aligned, right where a nice piece of border wallpaper would go.

And it would work if, say, it were a kid's room decorated in construction themes. Or it would work if you changed it to a nice green-with-gold-bars border. But the combo? Is just bizarre.

Did I say it's bizarre? ;-)

OmegaMom said...

Oh. Wait. It's not fluffy clouds or geese flying: It's CAMOFLAGE (or however you spell it). And the stuff above is some type of boyish print. It *is* a boy's room! The "caution" border now, suddenly, makes sense!

Well, dayum. I liked it better as a weird, bizarre intrusion into a sage/forest/flying geese room. Now I have to say the parents here were pretty inspired...

It's just caution tape and camo, right? Did I miss something in the camo? I never could see anything in those 3-D picture things. My boys would love this!

This is what happens when kids get to design there own room, but want it to look grown up. The camo and the caution tape is cool, but all those shades of green?!?

Aim said...

This really is decorating gone bad. I really don't see how the camo and caution tape match.

The preponderance of Magic Eye wallpaper is becoming increasingly disturbing. Perhaps that's why the caution tape is there - to warn people of dolphins and unicorns hidden in the walls. Maybe.

I'm going to go rinse my eyes now ...

The problem with the camouflage wallpaper is that the pattern repeats, and hence draws attention to the pattern.

True camo is random (or repeats at much larger intervals).

That said, the caution-tape divider is brilliant. If only it said "Crime Scene" on it.

YESS! I SEE THE GEESE!

Andrea,
I see the geese too - But - they're upside down and DEAD!
Are you on the Baily's too?

If it's anything like my brother's old room, the tape would ideally continue across the doorway.

Heh. It's offered by "Hunter Real Estate." Of course it is, with camo wallpaper.

I have to confess, this is the kind of thing I'd have done if I'd been allowed to decorate my own room. Not camo and caution tape, but something equally obviously the product of the tween-teen mindset. I think I wanted green carpet, blue ceiling, and that cheesy photo wallpaper that looks like a forest or something. For some reason my mom wouldn't let me. Probably budget. I'm sure that was the only reason.
