If you don't love pastels, avert your eyes now. The design aesthetic calls Easter eggs and My Little Ponies to mind. The pastels, chandeliers, ornate furnishing and overdraping communicate a yearning for childhood, and probably a strong fondness for cats, but this is more than your run-of-the-mill Barbie Dream House brought to life: amenities include a shower/portal to other worlds.
Check out the pink bathroom: have you ever seen such an eloquent expression of the impulse that produces plastic tiaras and cheerleader sweaters for dogs? The claw-footed tub has been painstakingly painted pink: creating this room required an unswerving commitment to the decorator's Strawberry Shortcake/Miss Havisham vision.
However, in a shocking break from design contiuity, the other pictured bathroom features what appears to be a time machine or space ship. It is actually a shower and whirlpool tub, but the sheer variety of showerheads and knobs, plus its capsule-like shape suggest hidden rocketship mechanics at the base of the tub.
Listing photos feature five chandeliers and one cat, but it's a solid bet that the house features more of both in person.
