Green Home in Washington, D.C., is Really, Really Green (House of the Day)




Jay-Z once rapped lyrical about the perks of "all black everything" (from his clothes to his cars to his house), but we think this house got the wrong memo -- or color, rather. With its living room decked out from top to bottom in green (velvet, no less!), this $1.95 million Washington, D.C., home is like nothing we've ever seen.

Though the listing boasts that it's an "innovative design" that's "right out of a James Bond film" (really?), we think it's one of the craziest houses we've ever laid eyes on. Granted, it's spacious (8,500 square feet) and has an interior elevator and lovely 16-foot-high ceilings, but that green just won't do. Maybe red? Andrea Paro of Redfin has the listing. (And thanks to our friends at Curbed for tipping us off to this wacky home.)
