"Decorators touch needed," says the listing for this Streeterville condo. Hard to argue with that. Remember those thrilling Magic Eye stereograms in which you could theoretically see a 3D image when you unfocus your eyes? That's what the wallpaper in this kitchen feels like, and looking at it for too long has us feeling a bit cross-eyed. The 38th-floor condo has some great views of the lake and the Gold Coast, but as the listing says, it could use some upgrades. The 2,000-square-foot unit just hit the market yesterday for $529,000 — that's $4,000 more than it sold for in 2000.
