Welcome to the most colorful and amusing house currently on the market!
Interesting and unusual color and design choices in historic homes usually provoke a lot of strong reactions (like hate and disdain).
But House Crazy Sarah just feels happy when she looks at this house in Saint Louis, Missouri.
In fact, some of the rooms give House Crazy Sarah a full-on giggle.
The owner (Karen) put her name in neon lights above the fireplace! Can you see it?
Karen’s house is currently listed for sale for $1,599,000.
From the outside the 4,483 square foot Victorian Second Empire looks normal enough.
Grand and stately, even.
But on the inside, it’s all about fun and funkiness!
And color – how can we not remark on those eyepopping paint colors?
Every room has a different scheme/theme.
The kitchen is somewhat “normal”:
But other than that, most of the rooms in the house make you go: “what the heck?”
Like this bathroom:
Cool bookshelf wallpaper, but what on earth is with the typed notes pinned all over the walls?
Gives you something to read.
And look at this bathroom:
Karen plastered the wall with copies of her Harvard degree!
Who does that?!
Karen sure is gutsy.
Below is a muted little alcove, but look at the beautiful stained glass:
Let’s go upstairs…
Bookshelves on the stair landing? Yes please!
The bedrooms are large and luxuriously appointed.
And look at the gorgeous master bath:
The paint color can be described as: kiss of watermelon flesh.
We get a peek inside Karen’s ginormous closet:
Wow – a closet with windows AND French doors!
And check out Karen’s office:
Love that wallpaper!
The colorful rooms in this house go on and on. There are six bedrooms in total.
Karen’s love of color is also apparent in the finished basement space:
Back outside to the traditional exterior…
You would never guess that this grand old Victorian is chock full of vibrant color and amusing, if not risqué, design choices.
This is no ordinary Karen house, that’s for sure!
