The Beard has been my linkman lately, and he did not disappoint today. His latest find was a pictorial tour of Mike Tyson’s former home on Illicitohio, an awesome (AWESOME!) site that documents the adventures of one anonymous urban explorer. The home has apparently been empty since the 90s and is mostly empty of furniture. It’s fun to look at what Mike Tyson’s decor guru thought was hot and what was left in the house after he decided to leave.
The photos speak for themselves, really. There’s commentary over at Illicitohio if you’re interested in anon’s take on the house and the decor, but I’ll leave you with this thought before presenting a selection of photos: Everything you see, from the furniture to the rugs to the faux plants, was someone’s idea of a real stylin’ pad.
This is precisely why I always advocate choosing furnishings and color schemes that have something of a timeless quality. As much as I adore that pool room and the huge brick fireplace wall, I wouldn’t want to have to live with the rest of that furniture and the gold ceilings and the crazy bathroom to enjoy them.
Now go check out the full set on Illicithio because there are tons more awesome pics from this crazy house!
