The Skinny: The eye-scorching canary yellow exterior is just the beginning with this home in an exclusive gated neighborhood on South Florida's Hypoluxo Island; within these walls lies room after room of diabolically decorated interiors, revealed layer by layer like a Russian nesting doll of bad taste and worse furniture. The Florida room sets the tone with an unbelievably on-the-nose turquoise-and-blue color scheme accented with—you guessed it!—a mounted fish. The aforementioned blue makes another half-hearted appearance on an accent wall in the dining area, before withering away in the face of the color-devouring bleached-out whites of the kitchen. The bedroom is perfect for Strawberry Shortcake or someone who's working their way through a Goodreads list of the top 100 romance novels in the Kindle store, the bathroom is a bewildering hall of mirrors, and the rest of the house gives up and settles for brown walls and a couple of turquoise accent pillows. It's asking $16.995M.
