Wild Decor in Texas Residence Makes It This Week’s Most Popular Home


Painted with passion, this week’s most popular home on realtor.com® is a quirky work of art that simply has to be seen to be believed.

The home’s owner, Missy Stephenson, painstakingly hand-painted her kitchen, covering the walls, cabinets, and the refrigerator with daring color choices. Stephenson’s touch is visible throughout the entire home. As she told us, “This is a little piece of heaven to me. I just love color.”

The Texas home became a viral sensation on Reddit and Twitter, where it was referred to as a “rococo Precious Moments nightmare.” Thanks to the home’s popularity online, listing agent Tyler Shelton told us he’s fielding nonstop calls about the property.

Besides this colorful viral sensation, other homes you clicked on this week included grand fixer-uppers in North Carolina and Pennsylvania, a recently discounted Arkansas farmhouse owned by Josh and Anna Duggar, and the Minnesota house used in the movie “Grumpy Old Men.”
