Hot new item in Sweden: the mythical Villa Frankenburg of pioneering Swedish composer Ralph Lundsten. The artist, who began creating electronic music in the '50s, purchased the decaying house in 1970 and transformed in into a whimsical "Pink Palace." Built in 1878, the 2,066-square-foot abode sits on a breathtaking 40,000 square feet of lakefront land, but its most intriguing features are the work of Lundsten. Beyond the bubblegum pink paint job, the interior is awash in psychedelic decor and otherwise fantastical furnishings. And then there's his famous home recording studio, Andromeda, which is just all synths and sparkle.

Andromeda was once the subject of a Vice video (embedded below)—there are glimpses of other rooms in the house as well. The home recently hit the market for roughly $2.11M.
