Goodbye Monopoly, hello ARMLS-opoly!

If you answered yes, The Cameron Team has just discovered the perfect desert mountain
property opportunity for you. Located at 41247 N. 95th St. in Scottsdale, this luxury resort-style estate has just been reduced to $1,529,566.
According to Jeff Cameron in an update posted Thursday, ”smaller homes sold last year for $4 million dollars” which is impressive since this property boasts 10,690 square feet.
What’s the catch? Well, the estate is not entirely finished. The wet bar, wine cellar, pool, six bathrooms and two half baths are among the unfinished amenities.
“(The) home is 85 to 90 percent complete,” Cameron added. “Needs some tile work, minor repairs, light and plumbing fixtures.” If that challenge doesn’t scare you, read on!
Dear Pinterest, in the hours we’ve spent just looking at amazing DIY projects in your endless galleries we probably could have DIY’d our very own home by now. Oh well, the ideas are there for both the lazy blog trolls killing time (guilty) and the truly motivated craftspeople who make these whimsical dreams of recycling old books and using mason jars for literally everything a reality. This crafty book mark idea from blog, Greenpaper, was found by way of Pinterest (of course) and is super easy…if you don’t mind apart the exterior of dilapidated old novels. Simply slice off the spine with an x-acto knife, punch a hole in the top and tie a pretty ribbon for easy grabbing. Who cares if everyone you know has a Kindle, these will still make awesome gifts come the holidays and remind people of that very sentimental “musty library” smell that brings back ye old school days.
For most of us, caffeine first thing in the morning is a must. Before you brush your teeth, get dressed or even fully open your eyes, downing a cup (or two) of coffee is what propels the day. If you prefer to expedite the process, there are super concentrated alternatives like the very serious shot of espresso and we have a pretty awesome reason for you to start drinking it. Give your morning routine a real blast off with very retro rocket-shaped espresso cup from Shapeways. Who says little kids are the only ones allowed to have cool beverage dispensers? Consider this the adult answer to the swizzle straw and pick one up for yourself here. 3,2,1 purchase.
Whether you’re a wine connoisseur or just love having a lot of wine at your disposal for spontaneous dinner parties, then perhaps it’s time you thought about having your own custom wine cellar built by Revel Custom Wine Cellars so you can twirl your mustache while you aerate your vino in the comfort of your own home.These custom cellars have quickly gained recognition as the new standard for high-end wine storage.
Founder, Jim Cash, wanted to build a cellar in his home and wasn’t satisfied with the traditional “cork
out” (cork first) racks that hid the wine bottles. Thus, he developed a wine rack where each row acted as a slide-out drawer, allowing you to look at every bottle in it, instead of just one at a time. Lucky for Cash, his design was unique in the market.
The most distinct thing about Revel Cellars are the moving parts. Using drawers and wheels, Revel takes pride in the fact that each bottle is presented label first, making the wine the star of the show. Many collectors buy wine by the case, and these cellars are designed to easily accommodate those bulk purchases.
Being a favorite among celebrities, politicians and corporate CEOs, it’s no wonder they have such a respected reputation. Priced between $30k and $60k, we definitely need to start saving, like, yesterday. But if you have the means and want to show off to your friends and family, we recommend you talk to Revel. Just promise to invite us to your first tasting party.

It’s no secret we love when we can turn empty bottles of alcohol into some creative home project. This is due in part to our love for recycling and chic home furnishings, but more so because of our excessive drinking habits.

Simply round up your empty wine bottles, soak them and remove the excess glue and get to drilling a small hole in the bottom so you can filter in light strands. Get step-by-step instructions from blog, Taste of Home and then there is no stopping how many of these you can filter through your home. It will give the feeling of an outdoor garden party with beautiful twinkle lights while indoors because let’s face it, that ship has sailed.

While not particularly the fine art you might be accustomed to on Colossal, it was impossible to pass this up. Guadalajara-based architects Hernandez Silva Arquitectos recently designed the interior of a new penthouse situated on top of a 1970s Mexican colonial building in Guadalajara, México. A notable feature of the home is a powder room situated atop an unused 15-story elevator shaft. Via Hernandez Silva Arquitectos:
A characteristic feature of the project is that a volume that was originally intended for a second elevator and was never installed becomes a powder room with a glass floor that looks down all the 15 levels, the PPDG penthouse is a great versatile modulated space, with great views all this with the concepts of transparency and the simplicity of materials.
Sure, they’re no Beats by Dre, but we say personalizing your own earbuds by following these steps on BLDG 25 will give you the swagger you need while listening to all your favorite tunes. Easy as making a friendship bracelet and about as time consuming, all this DIY project requires is a pair of simple headphones (which you can find at Target for around 10 bucks if you want to experiment), your favorite colors of embroidery thread and some scissors. Follow the steps on the website, or create your own pattern and rack up even more street cred. It’s like music to your eyes.
