Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas
Posted in: Colorful Interiors


When I saw the first picture of this place designed by interior designer Mark Tracy of Chemical Spaces I thought this place wasn’t that different, and it actually looked okay. Yes, I’d change that rug, where there’s not only a pair of breasts but also a tiger and a gun stamped on it (sorry, not my kind of stuff) , but my “tour” didn’t stop on the first picture and the more I saw, the more I asked myself about this place. There’s some elements that could look great in any space and others that I would leave right where it belongs: Vegas!

According to the Contemporista, the designer used only the finest materials for every surface of the penthouse and really wanted to create an extravagant environment.

“This penthouse‘s primary features include a 13’ tall by 13’ wide floor-wall-ceiling glass mosaic in an ocean blue color scheme with embedded images and bordered by a glass veneer tile. In the middle of the centerpiece mosaic hangs a chandelier encased in a blue glass cube.”

Take a good look and let me know if you think this penthouse is Cool or Fool.

Magic Rug

A closer look at the “pièce de résistance”.

Lights, Camera, Action!

This place has 120 linear feet of RGB LED lighting embedded around the perimeter of ceiling throughout the entire penthouse.

Love In A Box

The strange and unique boxed chandelier.


Yet another very unique feature, the mosaic wall.

Take That!

Alright, loving or hating the interiors, we can’t deny that view is fantastic!

Bachelor’s Paradise

Wow… I can almost see Charlie Sheen “partying” in this place!

Master Bedroom

I love the bed and the chandelier. This bedroom could be “Vegas-free” if it wasn’t for the light under the bed and, of course, those curtains! The bathroom seems to be the only “normal” place in this penthouse, unless the toilet starts playing some music while you’re using it. I have a feeling that anything can happen in this place. 🙂

Wiggly Curtains

These curtains would be nice at a cottage by the sea, but it’s totally tacky here.

So, what do you think about this place today? Do you think it’s a place that could inspire you or simply a place that only people with little taste and lots of money would actually buy? Let me know what you think of this place as you see it. Is it Cool or Fool?

Friday! How exciting! Actually, I’m planning on celebrating (away from Vegas) my 8th Anniversary with my husband during the weekend. We won’t do too much, just enjoy each others company. I think that’s all we really need and want, especially after a very busy week.

I hope you can have a very blessed and safe weekend with the people you love, the people that make you laugh and remember to enjoy the calming moments the days bring to you. Calming moments should always be used to hear what our hearts have to teach us.

See you back here on Monday.

* “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!

    hummm….gotta go with fool. Its just too much. The first picture is not too bad, but it just goes down hill from there. They don;t get the less is more idea. The rugs..whats with that, yuck. The yellow lights, ugh!!!!! The celings…yikes! How do they sleep at night? The neon lights, blinding! SCARY… not a like. Sorry..happy Memorial day weekend….

  2. The Texas Peach said,

    Definitely fool! This is a great example of money not buying good taste. The bed is nice, with the exception of the light underneath it. Although, that might keep the monsters away. Ha! The view is certainly the best feature of this penthouse. Hope you have a wonderful anniversary weekend!

  3. Cheryl said,

    Ick!! Fool for sure. Another great example that money can’t buy you good taste. Imagine this room in another 10 years… As my 9 year old would say “think ahead. Don’t regret your choice”.

  4. Cole@LavishProperty said,

    Fool, definitely! Very tacky, especially the living room, with cheap-looking furniture. No thanks!

    Fool, definitely. And it’s really too bad because when you look at some of the elements on their own there is actually great artistry and craftsmanship involved ie. mosaic tiling, marble table, ceiling beams, etc., but it’s just WAAAY TOOOOO MUCH of what could’ve been a good thing. If he could’ve picked just one element to feature, it could’ve been spectacular. Instead it’s just putting on the glitz without the class of the Ritz!
    Have a fantastic weekend my friend.

    Brega ao extremo. O que me dá arrepios é pensar na fortuna que gastaram para obter este resultado.
    Me divirto com seus COOL OR FOOL.

  8. SizzleandZoom said,

    It’s a fool for me, too. It’s too hyper for me. It looks so busy that I would think the walls are moving. Interesting how they boxed the chandelier and it has all the amazing reflections but I would build a bigger box. Have a wonderful weekend!

    Ummm, no.

    Dear Luciane, hope you’re having a wonderful Friday! This house is actually amazing, but the rug is awful!!! But if I could change a few things I would move right in. Beautiful view! Happy weekend, sweet Luciane! How is your pregnancy going?

  15. Meera @ firstsense said,

    Happy Anniversary darling! My husband and I celebrated our 2nd just a few days ago.

    This home is too OTT for me, I’m afraid.

    I have to go with fool on this one. There are a few elements that I like, such as the bed, minus the lights, it’s a little too gaudy for me.
