Here’s a perfectly pleasant older home on the market for a perfectly reasonable price (only $155,000). It offers original woodwork and hardwood floors, charming arched doorways and an updated kitchen.
But all I could think about when I saw the interior photos was that SIZE MATTERS when you’re decorating your home. I’m afraid these owners may need a little help understanding proportion and scale.
Take a look and you’ll see what I mean:
Here we have a dining room table and chandelier that are both too small for the room.
In the living room, we have artwork that is hung too high over the clock on the mantel, and a rug that looks too small to float in the center like that:
On the other side of the room is a TV too wide to fit on that wall:
Even the bedroom has a problem with size–the comforter is too small!
I think we should all chip in and help them pay for a redesigner who can help them sort some of this out. This would be a wonderful little bungalow with a few tweaks and rearrangements here and there, don’t you think?
