This house in Middlesex, UK looks typical from the outside, but inside, they tell an entirely different story.
Once inside, though, everything was purple. And I mean EVERYTHING. From carpets to upholstery, this house pays homage to the royal color like nothing we’ve seen before…
A couple of years ago, the home was put up for sale at nearly $600,000. Rightmove.com posted photos of the interior, and it didn’t take long for this “ordinary house” to go completely viral. People from all over the world were shocked to see the inside! Those who like the color purple say it’s a dream. Those who don’t, say it’s more like an eyesore.
As soon as you step through the normal-looking front door, you’ll be struck by how ugly the inside is. You’re utterly bathed in purple as the home floods your eyeballs with its in-your-face color choices, which happen to all be the same – purple.
Purple has been the color most associated with royalty since the time of the Roman emperors. It is still used by the British royal family and other royalty in Europe as a ceremonial color on special occasions.
In Europe and America, purple is the color most associated with vanity, extravagance, and individualism. Among the seven major sins, it represents vanity. It is a color that is traditionally used to attract attention.
In parapsychology, people with purple auras are said to have a love of ritual and ceremony.
More details of this story from AWM:
If you happen to feel that this home is utterly beautiful, you may not be alone. Besides the person behind its decoration, another person did eventually purchase the home. At what price, we do not have that information handy, but it was sold. Whether or not, they called a house painter as soon as they signed the paperwork is an entirely different matter. Thankfully, the problem with this house could mostly be solved with a few new coats of paint.
Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder. That’s why this homeowner thought it was a great idea to transform their average-looking home into a side-show display of purple that could not be replicated unless someone really, really wanted to.
The real estate agent advertised the home as having plenty of “family-inspired design,” but that just sounds like creative advertising kaka intended to trick someone into signing the paperwork.
Step out to the garden and we are back to normal again. Phew!
