The listing for this $14.9 million mansion in Franklin Lakes, New Jersey, dares you to “Be moved by the Russian Empire-inspired interior, which exudes a myriad of stunning elements including an imposing domed center, hand-painted murals, classic architecture, breathtaking trimmings of silver, gold, crystal, and exotic stones.”
UPDATE: The agent asked me to remove the photos. Sorry!
I spend a lot of time looking through real estate listings, and a lot of houses start looking the same after a while, so it was fun to come across something a little different.
Bucking the trend toward simple and contemporary kitchens, this one’s unapologetically opulent with coffered ceilings, murals, elaborate built-ins, and copper accents, including the range hood. I have a feeling this room alone cost more than my entire house!
