The Money Pit Home Is for Sale — and It May Be an Actual Money Pit

Before there was Chip and Joanna, there was Tom Hanks and Shelley Long in the classic 1986 film The Money Pit. The duo starred as two yuppies who buy a sprawling estate for just $200,000 in a distress sale. But naturally, nothing goes right when they attempt to move into the home, which ends up being a deathtrap with collapsing stairs, a bathtub that falls through the floor, and even a resident raccoon. And now, it can all be yours!

Floyd Mayweather Just Paid $26M Cash for this Beverly Hills Mansion

Two things are for certain, Floyd “Money” Mayweather loves to make headlines, and it’s been a great year for the boxer. He won the much-hyped “one-of-a-kind superfight” against UFC champ Conor McGregor last month, the estimated $300+ million in winnings from which enabled him to do good (purportedly one of several athletes who promised to donate millions to Hurricane Harvey relief in Houston) and #treatyoself with luxurious new digs.

Transparent Is Back For Its 4th Season This Week

While last year’s third season of Transparent could be considered a building year (they were nominated for Emmys only in acting categories this year, and none of them took home a statue last night), it set up plenty for the dysfunctional and somewhat self-destructive Pfefferman family to knock right down. And season four drops on Amazon this week, on September 22.

Another Margaret Atwood Book Is Becoming a TV Series Thanks to Netflix

The 1996 book, Alias Grace , takes place in the mid-1800s and centers around a woman who has been convicted of murdering a wealthy man and his housekeeper. The thing is, she seems to have no recollection of the incident, or much else – claiming to have amnesia.

Take a Look at Some of the Sets of Shows Up for Emmy Awards

Of course we watch TV for its entertainment value, but as design enthusiasts, we have a particular interest in the spaces where those shows take place. A set quite literally sets the scene, and is also a wealth of information into the character and their story. When a show has been around for a long time, the space becomes so familiar, like the home of a close friend or family member. Unsurprisingly, the shows nominated for Emmys take place on spectacular sets. Let’s take a look at some of our favorites from this year:
