    Default Willy Wonka House - Tribeca, New York

    This six-floor, 15,500-square-foot warehouse built in 1915 in TriBeCa does not match everyone’s idea of a perfect family home. Mixed Greens gallery owner Paige West, her husband and their three sons thought otherwise. They summoned their many-time design magician Ghislaine Viñas to create their most imaginative project yet while Peter Guthrie handled the renovation of the actual structure.

    they've got some great pieces but it looks more like a showroom than a home. i love the sheep.

    It's a bit wacky, but I like it.

    Let's hope that it actually is the end of a giant vacuum that will suck up away and forever the horror that is the decor in this home.

    This would have been my dream home as a child. There's something about it that I actually like. It's fun.
