Enjoy her take on Betsy De Vos's summer cottage. Here's what happens when you combine this level of bad taste with Betsy's wealth and her new responsibilities as Education Secretary.

The interior of this houses is AWESOME, like living in a real world Mr Men house on acid! Nor is that intended as an disparaging remark.

Sure, it's probably not to a lot of peoples tastes (or tolerable gamut range) but it darn well looks like a labour of love with a lot of personality. A gripping schism of 70's colour & pattern meets 50's Americana on a leisurely seaside bicycle ride, terminating in a visit to the veritable bargain bin of Ikea to bag a prize of the perfect finishing piece engaged with all the might, exuberance and innocence of child like joy that should be expected when hooking a duck to win a prize at the travelling fairground of interior Tetris delights.

The question is can yon live in someone else's labour of love with such loud personality?

After a couple of rounds of the old Ludovico technique, you would actually feel quite at home in a house like that one...

Something along the lines of Hitler-house in need of a more fitting title.

Jawohl Herr Kapitan house?

7 iron into the rough house?

Is it a bird?house?

I don't see the problem.

Give credit for something a little different from the bog-standard semi-d.

Why Hitler?
