UPDATE: The home has now sold.
Over the past few years, interior design has embraced a minimalist aesthetic. Colours are out and neutral hues are in.
As a result, we’ve rushed to paint over our feature walls that were a big trend of the noughties.
But one home in Narrabundah has missed the memo – this brightly coloured home is reminiscent of a kaleidoscope with every colour of the rainbow adorning its interior walls.
The home at 9 Euroka Street hit the market late last month and has caused quite a stir online.
Bright pink, purple, yellow and orange adorn the interior walls and are complemented by random symbols throughout including a star, lightning bolt and question mark.
The word “Bedlam” is also splashed across one of the doors, and perhaps “chaos” is the most appropriate description for the home.
The impact inside doesn’t steal all the attention with a facade that’s incredibly hard to miss. It’s painted bright red with yellow skirting boards, and the postie would never get confused with a big number 9 on the side facing the street.

Badenoch Real Estate listing agent Symon Badenoch described it as his “most interesting sale within 20 years, without a doubt”.
“It’s definitely a talking point.”
While the colours have been appreciated by buyers, the walls are likely to see a coat of paint or a jackhammer with most interested parties wanting to either renovate or knock down the home.
Mr Badenoch said the price offers a great entry point to the expensive inner-south market.
“That pocket in Narrabundah is undervalued,” he said.
It’s currently listed for sale with a price guide of $575,000-plus.
