    What the hell with the Polaroids on the cabinets? This whole place gives me a headache looking at it - I do love that painting though.
    All you can do at life is play along and hope that sometimes you get it right.

    It's hideous and tacky and that painting is so weird. Massive place though, I'll give it that.

    Some collectibles aside, I'd be having bonfires after bonfires with that place.

    That is common in homes of the very wealthy, and even the royals. They have many sets of china, so the photos allow staff to quickly know where each set is stored without opening the doors.

    Musty, stodgy, rug-gy, chintzy wallpaper-y, busy, cluttery, horrible pseudo-royal castle style. HATE.

    You can't even appreciate the view in the rooms because it's so jumbled with shit. You don;t even realize there's a window looking out!

    I'd gut the entire thing and sell the tacky shit to pay for some of the reno.

    There are a few things I'd pluck out of some of the rooms and give them a new home. These types of apartments get tattered and torn and don't seem to get the freshening or facelift that is needed. The same thing happened to Jackie O's apartment and add secret smoking with all those window treatments. Garbo did not let this happen to her apartment, it was in mint condition. I could tell she reupholstered pieces as needed.

    When I bought my first place it was filled with crap and decorating horrors. I was ready to walk out as soon as we walked in. Thankfully my realtor told me take a minute, appreciate the possibilities, and envision it with all rooms empty waiting for me to decorate. She also pointed out that the dated décor was keeping the place from selling which meant I could get a better deal. I bought the place and loved it. I looked at these photos, laughed at the décor, and marveled at all the windows giving the place great natural light, and the amazing views.

    The only homes I see sold furnished are at the beach/shore. They are usually vacation homes and/or rental properties, so the owners don't need to take their stuff with them.
