$350K home with jail listing goes viral

michael jhon

There’s a unique listing for sale in the city of Fayette, Missouri that might appeal to would-be kidnappers or those with a taste for something unusual.

It comes in the form of a two-bedroom, two bath, former sheriff’s home that comes with nine jail cells in its basement!

“WAIT until you get to picture #30!!” the listing reads.

The unique listing has gone viral, with photos showing a newly renovated home with a heavy door in the otherwise modern-looking kitchen that leads downstairs to the basement. That’s where you’ll find the lower-level jail.

The listing states that the home was built in 1875 and served as both the local sheriff’s house and the city jail. The cells have been left more or less untouched, though the upper levels of the home have undergone “extensive renovation”.

News outlets including USA Today and TMZ have all reported on the listing, and there

How Kenneth Nicholson Is Rediscovering the Romantic Side of Design

michael jhon

At the beginning of February, Kenneth Nicholson showed his fall collection, titled “From Grandma’s Couch,” in New York. While Nicholson has steadily gained a loyal following since launching his label in 2016, his second showing at NYFW felt like a breakthrough. A rich, romantic ode to the nostalgic comfort of his grandmother’s ’70s-era interior stylings, Nicholson’s thoughtful integration of womenswear details into forward-thinking men’s tailoring—as well as his eclectic body of references, ranging from The Color Purple to Billie Holiday—felt like his most confident offering yet, earning him a nomination for Emerging Designer of the Year at this year’s CFDA Awards. 

Then, of course, lockdown hit. But Nicholson remains cautiously optimistic about his brand’s longevity. “It’s definitely shaken things up for me, but it’s also allowed me to be more improvisational and just take each day one step at a time,” says Nicholson over the phone from his studio in

Paint Ideas for Small Bedrooms

A small bedroom can feel stifling and claustrophobic, but with the right paint colors it can become a cozy sanctuary. Leatrice Eiseman, director of the Eiseman Center for Color Information & Training and author of The Complete Color Harmony: Pantone Edition, says she once got great advice from a designer who worked on New York City apartments: Paint the ceiling like the sky.

“If you emulate the sky, you can keep your walls darker,” she says. “In a bedroom, you may

5 Things to Ignore on a Home Tour

michael jhon

Whether you are house hunting in the suburbs or searching for an apartment in the city, there is an endless supply of information to take in and evaluate before you decide to submit an offer. This includes the listing’s history on the market, information on the property’s physical condition, the lifestyle of the surrounding neighborhood, outlook and strength of the local marketplace, and so much more.

Too often, this information overload can distract a buyer from her primary and most important objectives.

It’s common for even the most focused shoppers to get distracted and forget their main priorities. Unless you’re looking for a fixer-upper, most people want something that is move-in ready, or needs minimal, cosmetic touch-ups like a fresh paint job or updating fixtures.

These buyers often pay too much attention to appearances and secondary issues. Instead, they should be prioritizing some of the less obvious aspects — particularly

Honestly, the words ‘shabby chic living rooms’ sends a bit of a shiver down our spines. We are picturing ‘distressed’ furniture (basically a shoddy paint job) a sickly mix of pastels and doilies covering every surface. Buuut it would seem that shabby chic is in fact back, and it’s had a bit of a glow up, shedding it’s doily skin and becoming a really stylish look that we actually want in on.

Keep reading to see how shabby chic is being done in 2020, and make sure you don’t miss our living room ideas page too for loads more inspiration. 

1. Keep things light and airy 

The old version of shabby chic, was all about a very cluttered look with plenty of colours and patterns all crammed into one space. The new more contemporary version still has plenty of pattern and there’s well curated

Musician John Legend and his wife, model and social-media celebrity Chrissy Teigen, are listing their Beverly Hills home for $23.95 million.

The couple and their two children, 4-year-old daughter Luna and 2-year-old son Miles, have been sheltering at the property during the coronavirus pandemic.

During this time, Mr. Legend said he has participated in a number of projects at the home, including writing new music, filming his appearances for “The Voice” television show and participating in numerous virtual performances including a massive Global Citizen event in April. “It’s made us appreciate it more,” Mr. Legend said of the house.

Mr. Legend said they would not be moving were it not for the fact that Ms. Teigen is pregnant with the couple’s third child. As a prospective family of five plus Ms. Teigen’s mother, who lives with them, they simply need more space, he said.
