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

Nothing rhymes with orange, so the Curbed tipster that nominated this apartment for TRH was left mostly speechless, managing to squeeze out one word: "Trippy..." The new-to-market 2BR, 1.5BA unit in white-glove co-op 30 Fifth Avenue is asking $1.65 million and last sold for $1.428 million in 2005. The apartment was "renovated by a top designer," not that we couldn't tell, of course. So what's with the stripes? Well, if the rules of fashion carry over to real estate, maybe they make the ceiling look higher?
