Kensington Interior Design Disaster Museum Asks $65K

New, 3 comments

This West Kensington home has been on the market since last June, and while we wish we could say that this is a mystery, it's not. The interior functions as a sort of showroom for interior design snafus. We're talking checkerboard tile, odious teal striped wallpaper, faux wood paneling, a shiny gold duvet and tchotchkes galore. While the design is guided an overabundance of whimsy, the interior space is also dark and cramped. The bathroom appears to have either a mirrored shower door or a mirror inside the shower, and the kitchen, while serviceable, is cramped. The interior design is consistent with the exterior color choices: the house is inexplicably covered in white siding on the front and red paint on the sides. However, the house does have a nice outdoor porch, and depending upon your religious feelings, you might like the mosaics. While the design is truly, uh, tacky-chic, the price isn't bad, depending upon where in West Kensington the house is located.
