    parts of it are cool but the ceilings are too low and they ruin it with their ugly furniture and crayola walls. that green bathroom is a crime.

    Neat house but whoever decorated it should be shot. In this case, clearly the owners. Now the house is free for me to move into.

    Maybe - although at present, it appears to be the magazine rack.
