Are you one of those people that can’t get rid of anything in your house? If you go to the basement you probably will find the gum wrapping paper that your first “love” gave to you in 1985? If you like to “collect” every piece of “junk” you find around, you’ll probably will love this Chelsea, New York apartment.
The first time I saw this place I tried to understand why someone would want to live with all of this on top of them (see the bedroom!), but the more I saw of this apartment, the less I tried to comprehend. It simply makes me dizzy!
But taste is something very personal, what can be “hell” for my eyes can easily be “heaven” for others. If this is your kind of thing you could own it. It’s on the market for $1,750,000.
Take a look and tell me if this is “Cool or Fool” for you.
If you take off all the “stuff”, you actually have a very cool industrial kitchen.
You Are Where You Live
It’s so interesting how much we can tell about a person when we see their homes. What does this place tell you about its owner?
This is the room that I tried to understand… What are they trying to do here? Pretend to have insulation exposed? What about the faux foliage hung on the ceiling? Ok.. I need to close my eyes for a minute!
This bathroom is worse than a gas station’s! It seems that it just came from a horror movie. You know those freaky cabins they show, right? Take a look at the rusty saw and tools (can you hear that squeaky sound of someone walking by the door?) And, yes… we can’t miss the “dirty” toilet and what about the “sink”? Genuine parts? Really? Great words for a bathroom!
Not even the shower escapes! Sit on a mushroom while you shower. Interesting… Interesting… (in a sarcastic way. 😉 )
Where is the Junk?
Something uncluttered, finally.
One thing I’ll say about this place that I find to be cool; the owner is living the way he/she wants to. And even though it can be ugly for certain people, what really matters is to feel that your home belongs to you.
How would you describe this place if you were realtor? Poor people… they need to get creative when they find places like this.
Can’t wait to know if you think this place is Cool or Fool!
What are your plans for the weekend? I’m not sure if we’re going to do anything because the kids still have a bad cold and it’s freezing here lately. My older kids usually go ice skating in our backyard with daddy, but they can’t the way they’re feeling. I really can’t wait for spring and be able to go for walks. Thinking about that, it will be so great when the weather is better so we can go to parks and show everything around to Matthew. It’s so wonderful to see him discovering the world around him. He’s reaching for toys now and it always amazes me to see his little fingers trying to grab a toy. It makes me smile every time. Yes, I’m paying attention to everything that’s surrounding me and the more I look, the more often I see things that make life more beautiful.
I think we only find happiness if we’re able to see life in a poetic matter.
Have a blessed weekend, friends!

* “Cool or Fool” happens every Friday. I’ve started this section where I post “different” and controversial things that I know some of you will love and others will not. The point is to tell us what you really think, regardless of anything. It’s a space where you speak your mind and analyze what you see. Have fun with it and laugh along the way!
