I love to look at real estate from all over the globe. My favorite website to peruse is Curbed. I look at their national site, but if you lived in a large city they have sites specific to your home town, such as NYC or San Fran.
One of their popular features is House of the Day. Curbed chooses a house from all over the country that can be swoon and cringe worthy. I relish in how the writers give your “the skinny” it can be good, bad, or ugly. Here are some of the great quips.
“this mansion is the architectural equivalent of high-waisted acid wash jeans with an electric blue skypager clipped to the belt.”
I have boys. Two dirty boys. When we are at the beach, it is so easy because I don’t let them into the house until they have showered. This got me to thinking about installing an outdoor shower at our home. So I took a look at Pinterest and Houzz to see what I could find. Evidently, other people have felt the same way I do. Enjoy all the fun showers.
