“Now there’s a house with an aesthetic”

If you’ve had it with farmhouse sinks, BoHo chic, subway tile, and the ubiquity of millennial-gray paint, this “funeral goth” home in Baltimore might be just your speed.

The home features coffins, guillotine art and a fake hearse — we guess for folks who truly plan to make this their forever home. Believe it or not, this is “neutralized” compared to before the seller hired his real estate agent.

Try setting one of these pics as your Zoom background to give your coworkers something to talk about in your next meeting.

The News

Working tech-parents have a new home in Baltimore: Parent-friendly Cube Cowork — featuring babysitters and a staffed play area (for the kids, not for you) — has taken over a 15,000-square-foot space in Northeast Baltimore.

A D.C. startup is helping small businesses crosspost on ecommerce marketplaces. Vendoo allows small business owners to sell, organize and manage inventory across multiple marketplaces — helping ease daily pain points of millions of sellers.

The End

Speaking of unusual home decor — count one for the Decepticons. A Georgetown homeowner is being forced to take down the Autobot sculptures that stand sentry on the sidewalk outside. Now’s your chance to check them out before they roll out.

Good luck out there on the job hunt!
