Behind this Rolling Meadows, Illinois home is EXACTLY what I would imagine every famous Hollywood starlets' home looked like. So let's don our sheer pink nighties, fluffy mules, and take a trip back in time to the girliest home (and OMG, bathroom!) I've ever seen.
This is Offbeat Home's archive of Homes & Tours posts.
Take a close-up look at real Offbeat Homes of all shapes, sizes and flavors.
I am losing my shit over this impeccably restored period home in Denver, Colorado. Not only is the home a mid-century modern dream, but it's been decorated — inside AND out — in color-blocked, Mondrian-style, using a Skittles palette colors of bright reds, yellows, greens, and oranges.
If you'd like to be schooled on color-block decor, come drool all the fuck over this 1952 ranch home.
As you have probably noticed by now, I have a raging vintage home boner that keeps me searching the internet for "homes with original details" porn. I got excited when I first glimpsed this spectacular boathouse built by renowned architect Harry Gesner in 1955. >But then, upon further investigation, I see that it's actually super tricked out with modern accents, in, um… interesting ways.
My infatuation with Robert Redford goes back about a decade to when I saw Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid for the first time and promptly watched all of his movies in the span of one summer. But in all the time I've loved him it's never occurred to me to Google where he lives. Does that sound creepy? Because I don't mean for it to.
We were scrambling to get out of the nest, but didn't know where to start. So we developed three requirements for our future home, and somehow a trailer fit them all. Now I just needed to get over my "trailer trash" stigma to be able to enjoy my new home.
I recently went to the open house for this adorable Robert Byrd-style cottage built in 1955 and kept in incredible original condition tucked away in the Hollywood Hills. There are wonderful little vintage surprises all over this amazing home. Hidden lazy Susans in an unexpected location, beyond unusual doorframes, and the coolest/most dangerous bathtub I've ever seen.
