Why do I love this house in the Netherlands so much? I don’t know! When I first saw the living room, I was prepared not to like it, but by the time I was finished w/the tour, I was in love with it. Looks neat and unassuming, right? A nice, neat home. Take a look.
So, the living room’s ornate, w/kind of a Victorian vibe, lots of plants and fancy stuff. For some reason, there’s a black open wood staircase, (probably original to the building), w/a knight on the landing. I didn’t really care for it.
Then, there’s this sort of cozy little hallway with drapey fabric on the ceiling, bookshelf print fabric hiding storage, and glass windows with a pretty street scene print fabric, filtering the light.
And, it leads to this amazing kitchen, the likes of which, I’ve never seen. I thought it was larger than it actually is, b/c it took a while to realize it had large mirrors to make it look bigger. The ceiling looks heavenly w/a dove flying above, and I’m crazy about the pastel chandeliers.
Check out the exotic powder room. It even has my favorite hanging monkey fixture on the ceiling. What is that on the floor, is it tile? A carpet? Whatever it is, I like the pattern.
Now, let’s go up the wood stairs- they’ve been embellished with gold stencils, a faux window, murals, and lots of fake ivy on the railing.
The muraled wallpaper now becomes the backdrop to miniature collections. But, there’s something about the way it’s done.
I don’t know what this structure is- maybe a home office? But it reminds me of a fortune teller’s booth. There’s a sign that says “Bar Rules,” though.
Then, overlooking the street is this wonderful salon (that’s the word that comes to mind, a salon) with a modest naked mannequin wearing a strategically-placed handbag.
I love the pink, and in the corner there is a dining area.
The bedroom, complete with a round bed and red roses.
I love the hot pink fireplace, too, and the decoupaged dear head.
The bath is amazing. Whoever decorated this place is a master of illusion with the murals, fabrics, lights, and accents. I’m just blown away.
The attic is a casual place, maybe a teen’s domain?
Check out the rooftop deck. It doesn’t look like you’re in the Netherlands.
Dine under the grass hut.
It’s like you’re on vacation in another land.
Then, there’s this castle-like staircase down to the first floor. Isn’t this unexpected?
Arriving at the bottom of the castle stairs, you’re in another fantasy world of murals.
And, the little hall leads to a potting room.
As if all this isn’t enough, there’s a patio out back that’s the most lovely retreat. I am so fascinated by this house, I just love it.

Amazing Wolf Art – A Journey Into Maximalist Decor Art
This is a wooden wolf wallart piece that I created a while ago. At first it was painted plainly with black, and lightly sanded. It needed something; it was just too ordinary and unexciting.
Recently, I was reading about maximalism and had a feeling that resonated with me. Some of my past artworks would fit well in maximalist decorated spaces.
As I walked though my home looking at my art, this plain wooden wolf cut out howled at me… “Heeeelp me! Make me exciting.” I snatched it from the wall and stomped off to the art room with a sense of purpose. I must save the wolf!I had no plan; it was an exercise of expression and spontaneity.
Now, this maximalist wolf’s heart-filled howls can be seen in brightness and color, flowing from within and out into the room.
This bold, busy style is attracting me to take the journey into something a bit more free. So the howling wolf is the perfect beginning to that trip for me.Join me… I’ll share the pieces that I think you will like as I create more maximal art.
Beautiful maximalist Swedish home. This vintage kitchen is fabulous. The cabinets are updated and modern, but the sink and all the antiques make it look authentic.
This is definitely a cook’s kitchen, filled with every utensil anyone would ever need. Classic subway tile backsplash and an antique table with a marble top and matching chairs complete the look.
A rounded extension of the living room is a gorgeous office with book wallpaper, and wrap-around shelf. The rooms are separated by an antique desk.
Gallery walls look great with striped wallpaper. Love the old table on wheels and the antique tricycle.
The pretty main bedroom is done in darker, restful tones. The bed, bench and wallpaper are beautiful. Note how the bed skirt matched the table cloth on the night stand.
Guestroom in a lovely cheery blue and white.

Slasher Home Series: The Collector🦋
I got help from @2jesterprince4 for the house info here’s the link if you all wanna see it for yourself https://www.redfin.com/GA/Atlanta/859-Edgewood-Ave-NE-30307/home/24647459
So this will have two parts to showcase Asa’s professor side and his Collector side.
As we know Asa does have a house its for comfort and a place to grade papers his students give him. I imagine him a bit more older with his style he isn’t someone I picture with morden taste. I believe he loves classical music and just wants to read the paper on his chair in his study. When he is being Professor Emory of course. They house would have a lot of beiges, creams, and browns has he decrotes the walls with instects a bit of a plain taste. He would have a room for his insect cages as well. I can see his funtiure being more antquies to be honest. He has a neat yard and some flowers to draw in the bugs so he can sip his tea and watch them crawl around.
Now with the Collector side fair warning there is some body horror in this next one.
Now the Collector is a mysterious persona of Asa. I picture this would be the look of the hotel where he keeps his victims if the desgin was up to me. The Collector would have a gothic background but also a hint of maximalist touch. Greens, blacks, and pops of color would litter the hotel. The Collector loves the dark and he also love insects the pops of color would represent the insects he admires so fondly and their bright colors against dark walls. He would have a green house in the hotel a bit run down but booming with butterflies and other bugs. The Collector has a refined taste and likes things in place so antquies would also be up his alley but the more bold and darker variety. The hotel will be a dark and twisted hunting ground if any of his prey escapes not to mention the traps everywhere that would make you watch your step.
