Last week, I was scouting an empty townhouse on the Upper East Side. I turned into a room on the second floor – and stopped cold.
Holy crap – Had I somehow been transported into the Overlook Hotel from The Shining??
Other than the color difference, the geometric pattern is a dead match. The townhouse dates to the 1920s, and while it’s possible it was left by one of the many film crews who have shot at this location, the quality is frankly way beyond what we normally do.
I got out of there shortly after. For some reason, I was getting the strangest urge to start peddling around around the place on a Big Wheel.
PS – Looking for a last minute Christmas gift? Unfortunately, this winter hat modeled after The Shining rug is sold out. But it’s pretty cool!
