    Default Inside the Magic Mushroom house

    Built over several years beginning in 1973, the outside profile of this Aspen, Colo., home — as well as the hallucinogens so popular in that era — inspired its nickname, the magic mushroom house.
    However, the house's architect, builder and first resident, Andre Ulrych, said he took his design cues from a nautilus shell.


    The décor includes rustic wood, moss rock and spider plants in macramé hangers. At the house's very center is a round, sunken living area that the current owners refer to as the "love pit."


    Set into the brick wall behind the bar is a stained-glass art piece fronted by a free-form metal sculpture welded by Mr. Ulrych that resembles a pair of wings.

    While it has strong Playboy-mansion Grotto vibes, it also seems like a comfy, cozy place to curl up and read a book.

    It's like living at The Rainforest Cafe.

    I'd like to visit, but otherwise no. The handrail on the stairs is divine.

    It makes me happy--I could live in it. And it's awesome that it hasn't been gutted and redone.
