The House That Pabst (As In Blue Ribbon) Built

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Joseph Pabst is the great-great-grandson of Frederick Pabst, founder of Pabst Brewing Company. Now we didn't expect to see the walls lined with beer cans or a ping pong table set up, but we didn't expect to see the explosion of colors, fabrics, textures and more inside this Milwaukee home.

When Joseph purchased this 1929 home, it was in great condition but it wasn't "him." He then took the next two years to make it his own, a place for himself, his dogs and friends and family when they came to visit. Not having grown up in Milwaukee, Joseph was excited to reclaim his roots and settle down in the land that his fathers built and embraced.

His home at first feels a little claustrophobic and as you continue through the tour things feel more open as you gain a sense of his style. We love the crazy over the top touches that truly transformed this age old home into something classic yet modern… and did we mention that there's an amazing pool?

Check out the photos above and then take the full tour over at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. You can read about his home and the changes made here.
