That's Rather Hideous: Versailles at Bryant Park

That's Rather Hideous examines questionable decisions in interior design as revealed in listing photos. Nominees, please, to

Let's cut straight to the broker babble for this midtown west gem: "This glamorous 1- bedroom residence evokes memories of the grandeur only found in the chambers of Versailles. For the discerning buyer who appreciates Trompe l'oeil design - hand-painted murals evoke pastoral scenes, gold filigree details and accents abound, and no detail has been overlooked in transforming this property to a period piece right off the pages of Architectural Digest!"

Well, not the actual pages of AD, but you get the idea. Asking $650,000 for 750 square feet of glory, or satisfy your royal fantasies for $2,500/month rent. (Servant photographed in building lobby not included.)
