My partner and I just bought our first house. We love it. However, we didn't get the first four we tried for, and we almost didn't get this one at least 372 times throughout the process. I found myself on an emotional rollercoaster where I had to constantly prepare myself for a possible "it's just not going to work." To make the potential hard blow softer, I started searching for ways to make that situation a learning experience.
This is Offbeat Home's archive of real estate posts.
This Offbeat Real Estate porn was brought to my attention by Offbeat Home reader Anna. This Evergreen, Colorado home, built into the side of a freaking mountain, wowed both her, her family, and me!
Let's take a peak around inside while Anna explains why the furniture is just as offbeat as the home itself…
We've seen geodesic domes, yurts, and yomes on Offbeat Home, but I think this is our first circular home. This house has been contemporarily restored on the inside, but it still has the unique distinction of being built completely around a pool with a retractable roof. Yeah, it's pretty awesome. See for yourself…
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.
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.
