I have poor impulse control


Rar! I want to go on a spree in this room! Throw paint! Wear my outside shoes! Jump up and down! Roast a pig! Move one chair a fraction of an inch away from the wall and watch the homeowner go insane!

The lamp needs to be turned 2 degrees counterclockwise, too.

I hate it when there's something wrong with the contrast on my computer screen, and images get all washed out.

Oh, wait a minute....it's NOT my computer....

Wow! That is one clean, bland house!!

Wow they do love it pale in that house.
I agree, it makes me feel like eating a burger while standing up or something.

I want to leave a speck of hot-pink fuzz right in the middle of the floor...

My BF and fellow Realtor uses a phrase in marketing these type of houses: "Unleash your creativity".

Oh look, the Blandersons are selling the homestead! You too can live the palest life possible. Of course, you'll have to permanently eschew marinara sauce for very obvious reasons and your black Lab will certainly have to go.

But it's all to the greater glory of being boring beyond belief, so there is that.

All that for 850k.

Too bad the relator didn't have a color camera.

When people occupy those chairs... what are they looking at?

I thought it was a funeral home at first.

Makes me want to send a case of red wine!

The only thing missing from this montage is Morgan Freeman standing there in a white suit.

I just want to take my 3 kids and some paint in there and go all Jackson Pollack!!

And yet, the front door is bright blue. Maybe they had to move before they got around to painting that white too ....

They need some color in their lives.

You'd think for living in Seattle wear it rains a ton, they would have like yellow walls to keep them happy.

Stuart said...

And one other thing ... notice that they put the "non-conforming" fourth bedroom in the basement and have no pictures of that? Oh yeah. I bet it's one of those misunderstood Goth bedrooms. Down there listening to Peter Murphy and painting itself black.

This would be an amazing set for a slasher film.

Something makes me think the seller's favorite flavor of ice cream is vanilla.

Saretta said...

Roast a pig??? LOL!

I keep thinking "three year old twins and chocolate."

"The private yard provides a peaceful sanctuary and a wonderful place to entertain."

The house takes up over half of the property, and the front yard takes almost all of the rest of it. There is hardly any 'private yard'.

Oh, well, if all you do is fill up your house with furniture, never eat there (no table), never sleep there (no beds), I guess you can entertain somewhere else, too.

your selected picture looks like it's missing a few mourners... who could probably use a splash of paint as well.

Callisto said...

They should have taken this picture in the dead of winter. Those colorful green trees are clashing with the theme.

In the community of Magnolia!

You have to give them a little thumbs-up; they hired a real estate photographer, and the verticals are almost straight.
If only they'd hired a stager!

So THIS is Mr. Blanding's dream house!

It's a test. If you can stand it, the next-door neighbors will approve of you and let you into their little Stepford club. If not, do not move in...

I know I just commented but... maybe it's Mr. Nitnot's house from the Imagination Movers!

Here's what I'm dying to do: gather every dog I know, throw in a couple of cats, take them all to the nastiest, muddiest swamp I can find & let them play for a while, then drive them to this house & let them loose. What fun they could have! What interesting art they could create!

The shade of that wicker loveseat is WAY too harsh. Tone it down, will ya?
