I love luxury when it’s truly luxurious, but I have to admit that I might love it more when it’s ridiculous. And while I would never criticize anyone’s desire to build their dream home, this one is a bit over-the-top. This house, located in Shanghai, is called the Hello Kitty Villa. Fans of the quirky Japanese cartoon will immediately recognize the aesthetic, but for those not in the know, it must look truly bizarre.
It’s not just the outside of the home that’s decorated in this think pink style. The whole interior of the house is decorated in shades of Hello Kitty pink, from the furnishings to the window treatments. All the furniture was custom-made to go into the home, and is embellished with plushy bows. Seriously, this is the most insanely pink thing I’ve ever seen.
Luckily, it’s not actually a home. That is, no one seems to live there. But even though it went up in 2009, no one seems to know exactly what purpose, if any, the building serves. Tourist guides have it listed as both a hotel and as a museum, and it could also be both. If anyone has any relevant info about this fantastic bit of frippery, please let us know.
