Imagine being this committed to a color scheme

As far as monochromatic interiors go, this condo for sale in a 1970s development in Ramona, California, really pushes the limits. “MUST love green or bring your paint brush,” the listing correctly advises, as nearly every inch of the 1,800-square-foot abode is swathed in Kermit the Frog green.

“Everything is vintage—even the magazine on the coffee table is 30 years old,” agent Nancy Maranan told “It’s a true time capsule.”

A solid green carpet covers the entire home, including treads of the floating spiral staircase (which, yes, also sports a lime railing.) Meanwhile, green patterned wallpaper ranging from the geometric to the floral fill all vertical surfaces (sometimes matching the bedding!), interrupted only by walls of glass looking out to golf course surroundings.

The kitchen, of course, also stays on theme with a green slab of an island, green cabinet trimming, and an avocado-hued wall clock. A few pops of beige or white in the sofas, curtains, tables, and dining cabinet—plus the blank ceilings—offer some much needed contrast.

Want to own a slice of peak ’70s style? This three-bedroom home just hit the market for $375,000.
