It looks like a beauty parlor in Canarsie, Queens that mob connected sanitation workers' mothers would frequent weekly.

I really needed a cocktail warning, as in "please have had five or six martinis under your belt before viewing".

It must be a cemetery, correct? There must be dead people buried under all those statues...

What's fascinating to me is that it's not just awful, it's six different kinds of awful. They've got a kitsch cabaret, Kath & Kim's kitchen, Liberace's boudoir, an 80s music video set, Jareth The Goblin King's spare bedroom....it's so bizarre!

Is that their TV up on top of that cupboard in this room, or is that a screen used for something else? If so, they’d need binoculars to see it.
And is the ceiling pattern actually carpet?

Who cares what it is, just lick it to bust open the doors of perception.

They've been trying to sell this for years. I guess it's kind of "taste specific"

Only shown on sunny days? You'd think they want to show it with the least light possible.

The Franklin Mint Showroom.

It's very close to upscale Palmer Woods where you can buy a much nicer home for not too much more.

Honestly, it is all of the furnishings that are atrocious. If you took out everything in it and took off all of the horrible white wrought iron outside, it wouldn't be nearly as horrendous. There have been much worse houses posted here.

R18 Most likely Chaldeans. That's their old neighborhood, but most of them left for the burbs years ago. No way are they getting 345k in that area.

Overall quite hideous,but I do spot a few things here and there I rather like. Like that end table with Buddha(?) faces . The wrought iron is ghastly on the house granted,but it is rather pretty in and of itself. I could see using that in a garden . You gotta give credit,they damn sure decided on a theme and stuck to it!

I remember this house from the Tasteful Friends the last time it was on sale. Still hideous.

Was there a blow out sale on statues on Wayfair?
|by Anonymous||reply 33||September 15, 2021 12:20 AM|
So we’re agreed it’s a truly awful place. I do rather wonder a couple of things, however. Did they not have people over who would remark on the much muchness of the decor? No friend or relative who suggested that they rein it in a bit?
And why would you try to sell a place that looks difficult to sell to begin with, and not even to empty it out? If all “Tasteful Friends” posts were pitted against one another I think OP has found the #1 seed.

Here's the story on the house and its owner. The price is substantially reduced from the original listing price. With some of the things that go with the house, it seems like quite the bargain.

The article at R35 makes it pretty clear the owner is gay. No mention of a wife, renovation worked was with help of a male “friend.” The basement was a cabaret…
