I'm in awe of this space created by painter/conceptual artist duo Rob Pruitt and Jonathan Horowitz. Documented in a favorite thrifty interior design book made by the now defunct Budget Living, "Home Cheap Home", it's a space filled with beautifully selected vintage furniture and artwork and perfectly complimentary paint choices. The homeowners haunted estate sales, eBay, and auction houses to find the eclectic antiques and vintage pieces you'll see below.
I love how they boldly painted vintage appliances, kept original details, and added kitschy plastic and toy accessories to keep to the playful haunted mansion theme.
Each room has a different color palate, the colors matching so well is contrived but it works so well in this Victorian home.
The playful details don't keep rooms from being dramatic or elegant, though, as is the case with the first photo of their living room and the bedroom above.
And this bathroom! I love how the painted orange door matches the frames on the vintage anatomy posters. The wood on the walls adds some nice texture, too.
Opportunities to add some fun details aren't overlooked, love this custom decal an often overlooked spot, the toilet seat lid.
The decals really give me some ideas for adding whimsy to a rental space!
Love the exterior details too. Some might scream blasphemy at painting a classic Victorian house black but this looks so good.
And the patio! Such beauty! The mix of color is absolutely beautiful, this would be such a fun spot to sip drinks and read or have a party.
A lot of people have called me crazy for gushing over this "too weird for words" house but damn, it's a horror fan's dream and clearly curated with an artist's eye for color and balance. Yep. I'd move here in a heart beat!

What's your favorite detail of this horror house? I love so much of it but that patio above is so glorious.
