Scroll through Zillow, and every once in awhile, you’ll run into a house that surpasses the so-called
average” home. Take, for example, this house located in Lafayette Square, St. Louis, which boasts a wild, non-cohesive, maximalist interior.
Measuring a total of 2,500 square feet, this mansion has a disorienting floor plan, crazily colored nooks, and enough mirrors to make you question reality.
There’s a reason why the saying “there’s more than what meets the eye” exists, and this house is living proof. That’s right, there is more than meets the eye behind these colors. If there’s anything extraordinary, it is the gem that this house is hiding behind this normal-looking façade.
If you’re thinking this chandelier is unbelievably closer to the table, then this next revelation would come even as a shocker. Truth is, this glass-looking table is only an elevation that allows one to see through the ground floor. Oddly cool, right?
While you might not believe us, this is an up-close shot of the chandelier reflected on the elevated glass ceiling. If this is not clever enough for you, then we don’t know what else is.
Here’s another angle taken from a point of view below the light.
Moving on to the kitchen area, the overall theme could be described as vibrantly rustic. The muted red cupboards and wood floors exhibit a fancy, yet old-time kitchen.
Another interesting feature in the kitchen is this quaint wall display. From ceramic tableware to wooden carvings and antique dolls, this corner keeps all the collector’s items.
If we haven’t yet emphasized how peculiar this house is, then let these walls speak for themselves. Here, you’ll find all sorts of designs, from triangular wall installations to curvy pillars that wrap around this tiny nook.
Another fascinating architectural feature found in this house is the columns, which add extra charm to the home.
Talk about ancient, this house is also home to a collection of old stones, a collection we’re not entirely sure how the previous owner acquired.
The house’s design is branded maximalist for a reason. One of its outstanding features are these exaggerated wall panels with uniquely designed shapes.
With several areas of the house containing amusing designs, we’re not surprised this bedroom was just as intricate. For one, its bed does not have the typical rectangular-shaped frame, but rather a semi-arc one.
In this bedroom, instead of a headboard, an overhead panel serves too cover the bed. Plus, and an elevated portion of floor as its bed frame.
This bathroom design focused on maximizing two contrasting and distinct designs: modern and sleek. Although this room doesn’t quite fit in with the rest of the house, it’s still a fashionable part of the house.
Another evident element of maximalism in this house was its display of incongruent items and designs. Notice how everything seemingly stood out, but overall appeared as one style.
Ever seen a bathroom so…extravagant? Well, look no further, as this restroom proves to be one of the most detailed rooms in the house.
Speaking of bathrooms, the bathtub is also an important feature not to be missed. This mansion made sure it had a fancy bathtub to complete the bathroom.
This powder room also got a lavish makeover with its spacious counter and drawers below. It also got intricately designed dividers to separate the sink area from the rest of the room.
Continuing with the maximalist design, this bathroom wouldn’t be complete without two sinks, shiny green tiles and two lights to brighten up the room.
Stylish Study Space
Onto the study room, this corner also has its unique and fascinating features. Just take a look at the table, which has one end attached to the wall while the other side has two feet standing on different levels. Plus, what’s not to love about the unique fireplace?
It’s no surprise this house contains a mini art gallery. Although it’s just a small nook, this space proves to have a large, artistic impact on the overall home.
Accommodating several sorting containers and a cabinet with drawers, this storage room is perfect for storing craft materials. Plus, it includes a spacious desk, perfect for writing or drawing.
This kitchen extension may have served as a storage space when the house was first built. Today, it appears to be used for a plant space that exits straight to the outdoors.
Nature Friendly Pathway
Filled with moss, trees and plants, this little outdoor pathway is the perfect escape for anyone who appreciates time in nature. Plus, it’s easy access to inside the house.
This outdoor patio would make the perfect space for barbecues. Not only is the deck spacious, but the surrounding trees and flowers make for a beautiful area to enjoy time with family and friends.
If you thought the unique designs only stayed inside the house, well, think again. Situated outside the interiors of the mansion are these stone figures, which added accent to the surroundings.
