Monday Montage: erotic art and all-concrete bathrooms #Reader Round-up#art#bedrooms#gamers#kitchens#rainbow#tile February 28 | Cat Rocketship 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. 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? 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. What a simple ceiling enhancement. Really well-done Asteroids install on the ceiling. From Blake Patterson, used under Creative Commons license. LOVE. That is all I can say about this. Photo by Wonderlane, used under Creative Commons license. Enough photos? Let's roll the Clicky Links: Ariel sent me the Etsy shop Beach House Living, full of summery, spoony, simply nice goodness. She also sent over this feature on this Green Furniture Award-winning chair made of old t-shirts. In case you were wondering, I have apparently bent the entire Offbeat Empire crew to my will, and they happily fill my inbox with Clicky Links. Megan made sure I saw a Lifehacker article on how to turn any desk into an adjustable drafting table, mostly using supplies from Ikea. I want to move into this polar bear room featured on Offbeat Mama last week. Polar bear wallpaper! Great for its almost-teen, but it would be just as lovely a room for the right adult.

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. Reply Thanks for mentioning my clock… I've gotten used to its size now and totally love it! Reply I LOVE that turquoise tile bathroom! 1 agrees Reply That front door is simply divine! Reply I want to move into the round house!!! Reply 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 Reply I want to live in that poke-a-dot house! Reply I know the rainbow door, too! I was so happy to see something local in this post! (Meghan, B-town shout out!) 1 agrees Reply I am IN LOVE with the matryoshka pillow in the second pic. Reply Why oh WHY would anyone abandon a round house? I can't even imagine anything cooler. I must have a round house. 1 agrees Reply 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) http://www.7dvt.com/2005/fixer-upper Reply 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! Reply RAINBOW DOOR!!!!!! I WANTZ IT!!!!!!
