And here’s where it all goes to hell. In lieu of a designer, McGraw summoned Beetlejuice and put him to work. Where to begin? There’s a twisting vine banister, tree stump bar stools (who puts a bar in a foyer?), the checkered black-and-white ceiling, an evil-looking chandelier and a big pair of lips. The house was built in 1960, but you’d never know it. McGraw had the house redesigned with heavy Tim Burton influences.
Talking to The Daily Mail, the younger McGraw says that the black-and-white ceiling is designed to look like the rabbit hole that Alice from Tim Burton’s “Alice In Wonderland” crawls through. McGraw was probably not thinking about resale value.
People on Twitter had a field day with it.
