Real estate agents are the keepers of the keys - many keys. They get to see unique homes of all shapes and sizes, from modest to mansion, along with some truly interesting architectural choices and design ideas. Just like with fashion, everyone has their own idea of what works or not, and there are bound to be some design fails along the way - and real estate agents get a front-row seat to the madness.

Agent Venessa Van Winkle wanted to share just how weird and random the interior design of some houses are, so she called on her fellow home sellers to share photos with her of the bad, the ugly, and the bizarre. Scroll down below to look at these unbelievable home designs, and don't forget to upvote your fave funny pictures!

This is an art piece done by Makoto Egashira. She uses floral carpet to make sculptures, her work is amazing. Please check out her art, support the artist instead of just believing the photo.

I'm sure we have seen this before, and it is amazing! Of course it is way too personal for resale, and one should think long and hard before doing anything like this - as in, am I going to live here forever? This is truly an art installation, and I admire the quality (and quantity) of the design. I wonder if the decorative plates are hand done as well? I would think it would break the artist's heart to leave this behind.
