That's Rather Hideous: Yahoo Can't Buy You Taste

That's Rather Hideous is the report filed by Curbed SF's own interior design vice squad. Spot an offender? File a complaint— or a compliment. Witness protection guaranteed. Note: As we don't employ a company sketch artist, digital photos are always appreciated.

The horror! There are many things that money cannot buy, and aesthetic intuition is certainly one of them: SF Luxe cozied up to BlueLithium founder, serial entrepreneur, and egomaniac Gurbaksh Chahal— who, not-so-incidentally, flipped his online-advertising startup to Yahoo for $300 million— for a recent tour of his Infinity penthouse, purchased for $6.9 million back in April. Where to begin? Firstly, we're fairly certain that Chahal didn't retain an interior designer here or that, if he did, he subsequently bastardized their work with a few personal "touches." such as the monogrammed headboard in the master bedroom (lest his lovers forget); plasma screen space scenes; and full-sized, tail-on Zebra skin covering the ... kitchen floor. Tragic.

UPDATESnap. Turns out that G-Spot did work with an blind person interior decorator to develop this "statement" for his new penthouse: "Shitshow by Vaso Peritos Design."
