In the Round/ Ruby Tuesday


No corners!

I wonder how they arrange the furniture.

I took this photo from the road where there were so many trees that spoiled the view. I would have preferred to take a longer shot so you could see this is truly a round house.

I love that house! It would be fun to take a peek inside, wouldn't it?

Happy early Ruby Tuesday ~

Who cares how they arrange the furniture. I love it and I want it and I want it now. Do you see me stamping my feet.

There are curved couches and the like. I think this is wonderful.

Tricia said...

LoL! I was gonna say the same thing... How do they arrange the furniture?!!

Paulie said...

It is easy to arrange furniture in a round house. Think about lighthouses! The rooms are not all round -- usually pie shaped or semi-circle. They place larger things on the straight walls where the rooms are divided and smaller things on the curved side. It has a beautiful view from windows that "curve around" the side of the house the room is on. I would love such a house!

Oh the bow windows in there! At least I imagine having bow windows. A bit more difficult with angles lol, but I'm sure one finds a way around these problems!

judi said...

curved sofas, round beds? :)

Ralph said...

A giant arc replaces the angles. So there is not a 'better' side to photograph, the unique style looking great. The cupola upstairs is lovely. Yes, so much furniture is of straight lines, and may be oddly placed. What price/style??

Nice shot. Nice house.

If they can afford a round house, don't you think they can splurge on the round couch and chairs, too? I think I would get tired of it all after a bit. But I'm just a square.

valid question--cool house!

ilanadavita said...

I was wondering the same. Yet I suppose you can have straight walls inside. Great find!

Auntie E said...

Oh yea i'm guessing not against the walls.lol,

Jacob said...

Their furniture is specially made and it's all round. All around the house everything is all round. It makes me dizzy.

But it's a nice ruby Tuesday photo!

Dimple said...

A very neat house; I wouldn't worry at all about arranging the furniture, but move in first and arrange later. :)

What a cool house!! I too would love to have a tour of the inside!

Carletta said...

I could see myself in this house. Lovely brick and stone!

Mine’s here: Round The Bend.

Very interesting!

Celebrated it with Dad

luna miranda said...

i love the brick and stone...quite interesting shape for a house. arranging the furniture is not really a problem, but how about a wall decor or a mirror? now, that is a challenge.:p

Robin said...

What a fabulous house. To have chosen it they must have a really unique design sense, I'd love a peek at the interior.

Greyscale Territory said...

This house intrigues me! Like others, I wonder about the interior layout! I guess you would certainly minimise those hard to reach dusty corners! Great shot!

George said...

What a neat house. I also would like to get a peek inside.

Dianne said...

I picture wonderful seating arrangements with fabulous coffee tables in the middle

and lots of round rugs ;)

I love this house!!

Stephanie V said...

Nice house - we don't see too many brick buildings out west. I'm a little dizzy after reading all the furniture placement ideas, though.

see you there! said...

I'd sure like to see the inside of the house. Wonder who designed/built it.

We had some friends who had a round house, but somehow their rooms were square. I'd love to see this one.
Happy RT.

It reminds of the functional style of the Thirties converted into brick. Very special.

Craver Vii said...

Intriguing. I'll bet it's hard to sell.

Michelle said...

Maybe they have round furniture. :)

What a cool house! Happy Ruby Tuesday

your furniture question is reasonable ... but I've always wondered the same thing about the Oval Office. I guess they just have to hope the rooms are big enough to compensate
