Chic or Shit Wednesday: Mixing Bold Patterns

We’re moving Chic or Shit to Wednesday this week, because, I seriously couldn’t wait to share this amazing home with you. This is an actual home, listed for sale at finn.no.

WARNING: Image galore. I just couldn’t stop myself.

The amazingness starts right when you enter the home. You have classics from the 50s paired with baroque and 70s wallpaper (as well as some 60s flair in the hall)

The kitchen nook is pretty spectacular with stripes, baroque and checks, paired with wood toned trims. Look at the artwork above the table (facing the window with the credenza)


The kitchen cabinets are wallpapered too. This lady was way ahead of her time!


The rug on the floor is seriously awesome as well as the chairs in front of the fireplace.


Here’s a view of several of the rooms. It all does match in its own way, doesn’t it?


Dining room. 50s and victorian, paired with a 60s floor rug. Look at the large lamp in the right corner and the urn on top to the corner cabinet!


Her plates are displayed on the wall (center of image) and the seriously awesome mirror in the right corner has a twin! (below). I’m really liking the details in the ceiling together with the art nouveau lamp.


A better view of the twin mirrors (yes, there’s TWO of them!)

Another view of the amazing chairs.


50s, 60s, kitch, glam, baroque. Look at the table lamps!


The most understated room of the house.


Hello first floor!


This was probably her dressing and/or laundry area.


The toilet has its own little niche.

Look at the shelves! They’re also wallpapered!

And the mirror matches the rest of the decor


Stripes combined with baroque again.


Another 50s jewel in the left corner.
And I leave you with this.

So what do you think? Could you live here?

Tapethuset ja.... Shit for min del, men særdeles orginalt!

aig said...

OMG, this is real crazy. Mye for urolig og overlesset for min del.

SHIT. I never thought something so innocuous would make me feel like I have to vomit.

Belly said...

My favorite houses have pattern overload- it can either be realllly good or reallllly bad. I will say chic- cause even if it turns out shitty - at least you had the guts to do something bold and unexpected.

Fonda LaShay said...

totally not my taste.. BUT i think it should almost be preserved for history :P not often do you find a house like that in such great looking condition. it is like a time warp

Fru Trippel said...

Got dizzy just looking at the pictures... Definately shit:)

idyll said...

Haha.. FIkk denne linken av ei venninne i går, vanvittig mye stygtkult, men tror jeg hadde følt meg konstant uvel av å bodd der;)

VictoriaArt said...

I do not like it, it has something too serious about it and a bit of a granny feel, even though it wants to come across as chic. I think shit...


thingsthatsparkle said...

i have to say shit. it made me dizzy looking at it. can you imagine being the person who moves in... how much money it would take to remove all that wallpaper? no fun!


Shannon @ What's Up Whimsy said...

Okay, I don't exactly think it's Shit or Chic. If I bought this house, I would probably keep some elements - the floral wallpaper in the bathroom, the striped wallpaper in the dining room and perhaps the wallpaper in the front entryway - but other than that, the rest would have to go!!

hviit said...

Chic & Shit... men det hadde blitt bare chic hvsi jeg hadde millionene til å kjøpe og pusse opp for... Lotto på lørdag!

Mona said...

Har du sett på maken...! Helt vanvittig! Det meste der hadde nok fått en real makeover i mine hender altså... Men stort potensiale da! ;))

I think she just invented a new genre; chicshit. I think this home is totalt chicshit. It's wat to much, but stil totaly awsome.

Hege Greenall-Scholtz said...

This is so OTT that I think it actually works. Wouldn't want to live there thought. Seriously headache inducing. But I applaud the guts.

life, in small chunks said...

Yikes, totally over the top and I couldn't ever live here, but man, I have to hand to whoever did this. This took guts. Or maybe this person was blind? One or the other. I'm going with chicshit - shit, but totally awesome shit!

nullfiresyvni said...

haha. i saw this one. i thought maybe some 70's enthusiasts would buy this one. it's actually so horrible that it might be kinda cool... but i could not live her myself.

Jorid ♥ Noe på Hjertet said...

Hahaha, har sett mye på huset der ja!! Er jo i Trondheim :p Avisskriverier og alt, det ser jo ikke ut!

Håper du får en fin kveld!
Klem Jorid

små og store drømmer said...

Hahahahah! SHIT!

My Wonderworld said...

Det må være definisjonen på S.H.I.T. ;-)))

Oh wow!
This is kind of extraordinary, and while I wouldn't exactly call it shit -- there appears to be some method to the madness, I'd have to clear it out before moving in.


The Zhush said...

Good Lord! Where on earth did you find this? Do people really live here...its crazy!

Lene said...

Jeg skulle likt å møtt madamen som har fått til alt dette. Uansett hvor ektremt det er kan jeg ikke være annet enn fasinert av kombinasjonene av farger, mønster og møbler.

That house is perfect for growing up a future psychokiller.

hip hip gin gin said...

Oh dear me. I hate to say it but I have to go with "shit" for this one. It is just too much. And the colors do nothing to help the situation for sure.

Tiina said...

oh, galet! men tänk om man kunde hämta hem en hel del av de vackra saker...
