Decoded: the Most Positively 'Stylish' Listings in the Country

New, 2 comments

Welcome back to The Brokerbabble Glossary, where Curbed takes a word or phrase that shows up repeatedly in listings and deciphers its true meaning. Ideas? Hit up the tipline.

"Stylish" is a word that is overused by brokers almost to the point of rendering it completely meaningless. Simply put, most houses that are described as stylish are not. Those houses aren't very interesting though, because, well, they're not very interesting. Much more interesting are the houses that are not stylish, but rather style-ish, in that they do appear to be approximating some sort of style. Houses like this one in Dallas, which is owned by a "designer." Designer of what, exactly? Deer antler-incorporating light fixtures? Never change, Texas. Specifically your completely insane ideas about what constitutes fashionable interior decorating. Never change that.

This house is definitely going to have the last laugh when gold wall-curtains become the next big thing. Sorry—the next chic thing.

This must be one of those minimalist fireplaces that are all the rage right now.

Good to see you haven't changed yet, Texas.
