Estonia is known for its decorated eggs.


Estonia finally has a lovely listing, thanks to Laura... and it requires the use of the Modesty Chair. Shame, shame, Estonia.

(Immodest version here, for those of you who don't mind encouraging such behavior.)

Whoa. For a country with one of the most subdued and sober flags out there? They're making some mad use of color and pattern in that kitchen in particular.

I wonder if that was put in before, or after the Soviets left? I kind of like to think it was before.

As for the naked photographer, go forth and be naked, young man. If my country had gone from enforced serfdom to Soviet control, to Nazi occupation, then back to Soviet control? I might just be naked in a great big fit of, "You can't tell me what to do any more! We're free, going on twenty years! Do the naked dance!" too.

At first I didn't see what you were referring to and blew the picture up and ... whoa!

Yes, indeed, a modesty chair is required.

*blushing*

Does it come with that guy? Where's my checkbook!!

But it's got a wc ja vann eraldi, vann, keskküte, külmik, mööbel, parkimine tasuta, trepikoda lukus! And apparently a penis!

Maybe the nudity is to distract from the crazy color patterns and strange plumbing and gas lines draped around the place. Didn't work- I still saw them.

Interesting how there are 2 shots of each area; how different can a toilet look from a different angle?

Notice that his email domain is "hot"?

Angel said...

OMG, seriously, who DOES this? LOL! I didn't see it at first either, but then... whoa... there it is!

Ah, the perennial answer to 'For the love of God! Won't somebody think of the children!'

Why yes, ma'am. Modesty Chair to the rescue.

That counter top looks like a pattern of fresh fruit and vegetables. It may be Soviet-era -- to remind them what fresh food looked like!

I'm not sure about Estonian, but in Finnish, the word for "egg" is also slang for the male anatomy. So, um... decorated eggs indeed. ;)

Oh, also, obligatory link: Kiek in de Kök

"I've sliced my tomatoes somewhere on this counter. I'm hoping to add them to my sandwich anytime before next week. Oh schneike..now where did I put my BLT down?"

HaHa! I didn't realize what chair you were talking about at first!

Bill's Bayou said...

It's not the size of the listing. It's how you use it.

webbie said...

What a very well placed shelf!

Ah, reflectoporn, eh? Classy.

Erp, forgot to mention that the Snopes link has some NSFW nudity. :P

Forest Basenji said...

Ow, my eyes. Not the reflectoporn. The kitchen counter. Somebody needs a Modesty Chair for the kitchen.

The young lad featured in the dining cabinet's reflection is much easier on the eyes :)

Stephen said...

Since this was published, the picture on the actual listing has been neatly cropped on the left just enough to remove the NSFW part.

Heather said...

Aw, nuts!

Julia M said...

Actually it hasn't - just scroll down for the uncropped version!

No, I just went to the listing, and he's still there. I didn't see any reflection in the dining cabinet, but really, where IS the dining cabinet?

HelenF said...

I sort of hope it's intentional exhibitionism - I think that's less worrying than a guy who takes listing photos in the nude for no other reason.

Brandy said...

That was my first thought, Helen:

Did the house appeal to the estate agent so much that he just had to, er... free himself?

Or is nudism just accepted in Estonia, especially among the real estate crowd?

Inquiring minds want to know!! LOL!

autie said...

Er...hmm, does the house really suck that much he needs to "model" to get people to look at it?
