Inside Christian Audigier's House: The Five Gaudiest Choices from the Ed Hardy Designer

When we heard Christian Audigier's Hancock Park house was back on the market, our first thought was, Gross. But our second thought was, Oh cool, that means there's pictures.

The listing's 16 photos offer a unique perspective on what the man behind Ed Hardy looks at behind closed doors. Let's take a look at five of the most egregious design choices, shall we?

5. The Crown

This room is probably close to what you imagined the minute you heard the words "Ed Hardy house." The pink couches, the furs, that stuff on the ceiling -- it's all kind of perfect, and by "perfect," we mean, "Furniture removal better be included in the $8 million asking price." But we can't stop staring at that crown over the mantle. Do those lights twinkle? We hope so.

4. The Wallpaper

It's not the leopard-print pillows that make this room, nor the three single beds, aligned as if Lucy and Ricky Ricardo brought in an extra lover for a 1950s-era threesome. It's the wallpaper, simple yet tacky. If anyone knows the significance of the numbers 2, 5 and 8, we'd love to hear it. Also, how's the weather looking in Vegas?

 

3. The Aristocrat

Out of sixteen photos, this was the one we understood the least. Did this little bit of stained glass really merit the spotlight? Nothing classes up a place like colored glass and powdered wigs, we guess.

2. The Giant

We're digging the subtle, wooden variations, even if most of this room screams "model home." But what are those Shepard Fairey prints doing in a dining area? What are you, 25 years old? And how much money are you worth again?

 

1. The Rhino

It's a table that looks like the bottom half of a rhino. Or maybe a hippo. Does it really matter? Yeah, we didn't think so either.
