    the house is nice but all the furniture must die. and that includes the tacky ass rugs.
    i especially loathe those leather sofas and those shiny brass light fixtures/chandelier thingies. fucking hideous.

    The decor is just a sparse hodge-podge, but what an amazing building.

    House, great. Furniture, not so much.

    And there's way too much shit in that bedroom.

    It's hideous. Looks like a student squat. The bedroom belongs to Comic Book Guy.

    You know I have to agree in a way; one of my other thoughts was that it resembles a dorm in a very wealthy, very old school.

    It needs to be gutted and redone but there is definately potential.
