Monday Montage: erotic art and all-concrete bathrooms

February 28 |

Welcome to the first post-full-launch Monday Montage on Offbeat Home! Last week we opened the doors to a trickle of registered beta users, and you helped us get even more geared up for going live. I'm ready to roll, are you? Here are some house-porny photos just for all y'all.

rainbow door
Some people have rainbow flags. This beautiful rainbow door is my favorite thing this week. Photo by zappowbang, used under Creative Commons license.

Can you spot the boobie painting from the Offbeat Home Flickr pool from pjcommunists?
One tiny flat with one massive clock - do you think it's too big?
Annabel Vita added this shot to the Flickr pool: 'One tiny flat with one massive clock. Do you think it's too big?' NO. Too amazing.
Abandoned Concrete Round House
This is a concrete round house which was built in 1973 in Ohio and quickly abandoned. CHALLENGE: Who wants to move in and make a nest? Photo from Don O'Brien, used under Creative Commons license.
Blue Bathroom
TOTALLY OGLING this amazing tile job in a photo from Bill Bradford. Tiles on the countertop? Tiles which match throughout, but differentiating with a pattern shift? Brilliant.
Concrete Sink and Tub in Bathroom #2
My father-in-law is a mason and concrete expert, so this poured concrete tub/sink combo from Jeremy Levine caught my eye pretty quickly. Photo used under Creative Commons license.
Bucking Bronco sink
I went on a 50s house rampage on Flickr this weekend, looking for inspiration for my own pad. HOW AMAZING is this kitschy-ugly-awesome cowboy tile? Photo by Mary-Francis Main. Used under Creative Commons license.
Asteroids on the ceiling!
What a simple ceiling enhancement. Really well-done Asteroids install on the ceiling. From Blake Patterson, used under Creative Commons license.
The Kitchen Sink, Mill Rose Inn's cozy kitchen, Half Moon Bay, California, USA
That is all I can say about this. Photo by Wonderlane, used under Creative Commons license.

Enough photos? Let's roll the Clicky Links:

We want your photos. Submit your offbeat shots to our Flickr pool and let us take a look.

  1. That last photo reminds me of my dad's house. It feels so welcoming with things that are old, but work. It's a place you want to hang out in all the time making pierogies, drinking beer, and listening to Spanish music…oh wait…we do.

  2. Oh I know that rainbow door! There's also a local landlord here (Burlington, VT; also not sure if this rainbow door is his place) who paints all his rental properties crazy colors. He has a pink one, I mean holy hot pink!, with green polka dots and a duplex where one side is like fuchsia with purple trim and the other side is orange with green trim, if I recall correctly. And these colors are BRIGHT!

    3 agree
  3. I know the rainbow door, too! I was so happy to see something local in this post! (Meghan, B-town shout out!)

    1 agrees
  4. Why oh WHY would anyone abandon a round house? I can't even imagine anything cooler. I must have a round house.

    1 agrees
  5. For those of you who love the rainbow door and aren't lucky enough to live in B-town or the surrounding area- (my last apartment was down the street from it)
    Here is an older article on the landlord/developer that was mentioned (still not sure if the rainbow door was his work or not)

  6. OOH, thank you so much for the first linkie!! DH and I are doing a beach living theme for the main floor of our new (bought! Our first!!) townhome, and I LOVE the stuff she has!
