    Default In San Francisco, Design as Conceptual Artwork

    The 1880s house, divided into two apartments and an in-law suite, is in a hilly part of San Francisco, across from Buena Vista Park.

    I weirdly like the wallpaper (?) in the last pic, but it would drive me insane.

    i hate the wallpaper and everything else about that last bedroom, i also despise the carved stone fireplace mantel, and the mirrored side of the kitchen. and what is with the decorative (i hope) urinal?

    other than that, i like this a lot.

    I didn't notice the urinal, why the hell is that there?

    The urinal outside the kitchen is an interesting touch.

    I always hate how these places look so "fake lived in". It's creepy.

    Why is there an anti-Viet Nam war poster above the urinal? I keep seeing new strangeness in this place.

    I like the fact they have vinyl, but I wish they would store it better than that.

    Sorry, I'm still stuck on the decorative urinal outside the kitchen. Nobody should have to pee THAT bad.

    Maybe they're symbolically pissing on America's involvement in Viet Nam?

    Love the house, do not love how they decorated. They need to give it to me, I will do right by it.

    Like the greys, the dining area, and the fabric on the wee couch/settee. Actually I really like their utensil organizer too.

    I need that utensil organizer.

    Beautiful home but WAY too fussy and perfect.

    Love the house itself, though not much of the decor is my taste. I'd take it!
