If you’re prepared to write a $3.3 million dollar check for this Dallas, Texas estate, then get ready to park your pink Cadillac in the driveway of the home that used to belong to Mary Kay Ash, the Queen of Cosmetics. This pink palace is loaded with extras but you have to enjoy the color or it’s just not right for you.
The house comes replete with an entryway that would rival the Taj Mahal, lined with white columns against the pink backdrop and guarded by stone lions, the tall glass entryway welcomes all, peasant, pundit or prince.
The foyer is more of a lobby than a foyer in this 11,874 square foot home. Even the Queen of Cosmetics thought the house was too big and eventually moved back into her previous home, leaving the house to someone else with a penchant for pink. The foyer has a semi-spiraling staircase with white wrought-iron rails, a marble floor and white plush carpet on the stairs. The color? You guessed it—pale pink.
One of the sitting rooms breaks from the pink tradition of the home, with wooden walls, ceilings and hardwood flooring. The design of the embossed wooden walls and the high slightly arching windows is reminiscent of a castle in the times of King Arthur. Alas, there is no pink here.
The formal dining area, just off the foyer, follows through with the pink wall theme, but has high arched windows and white woodwork so it isn’t quite as noticeable. There are arches everywhere you look in this home. The hallway is a massively long arch with white pillars at the side. The windows are arched and even the entry ways to the rooms are arched. The hall at the top of the stairs, however, is not surrounded by an arched railing—that railing is arced.
Luckily, the kitchen is traditional—but big. It offers white cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and an adjoining two story glass walled breakfast nook. If there’s any pink, it certainly is hidden.
Some people note that the theme of pink was taken to an extreme when they heard reports of a pink quartz toilet in the boudoir. However, if you look pretty in pink and have $3.3 million to throw around, this excessively pink mansion is up for sale.
