2. The Palace of a 96-Year-Old
72 years ago this house was built and decorated by the lady who is now ready to sell it. She has always taken really good care of her home and is very fond of it. It’s such a shame she can no longer take care of herself and her home anymore and felt the need to sell it.
When the real estate broker came in his jaw dropped. The house looked amazing. It almost felt like the home of a royal family. From the outside, this house looks plain and ordinary but as soon as you pass the threshold it feels like you have entered a different world altogether. It’s bright, luxurious and full of really old vintage furniture that has been well taken care of. No dust or stains anywhere. It’s clear this lady truly loved all of her belongings and treasured them a lot.
The rooms in this house have many different styles
Some of the rooms are very clean and stylishly old-fashioned, while some have an old, country feel to them. Isn’t it amazing? With a home like this, you almost feel like royalty yourself. We wonder how long it took this old lady to furnish her home like this. Did she buy or bring everything when she came to live here or did her collection grow over time?
The bathroom might be small, but it’s beautifully decorated with pretty pink details. Although the old lady had lived here for many years, it still looks neat and well-maintained. We’re impressed with how tidy she’s kept everything!
In the basement, you’ll find this amazing country-styled bar and lounge room. The perfect spot to relax after a long day at work. It looks very different from the rest of the house, but we love it all the same. And look at that bar! How cool would it be to host a cocktail party in this basement?
It’s clear that a lot of thought was put into every part of the house. Even the landing looks flawless! We love the detail of the vase of flowers and that side table is gorgeous as well.
Pink is her favourite colour!
It’s clear this lady has a thing for shades of pink. You can find pink accents or wallpapers in almost every room which makes you feel like this house belongs in a fairytale. Just look at that beautiful flower wallpaper! Doesn’t it make you feel as if you’re in a princess’s home? This looks like a lovely nook to have breakfast or read your morning newspaper. We can just imagine the old lady sitting there.
The kitchen is very spacious; there’s tons of room to cook large meals for a family. And here, too, we find the lady’s love of luxury: there’s a true chandelier hanging from the ceiling! How amazing is that? The kitchen has light pink details as well and a large sink to do a ton of dishes in. We’d love to know if this kitchen comes with a dishwasher, though…
The big bedroom has lovely shades of purple and looks like the perfect place to rest after a busy day. The cream bedding and furniture have a calming effect and we love the long cabinet that runs along the entire length of the room.
Her love of pink returns in the smaller bedroom, which is the pinkest room in the house. The walls are bright pink with pretty details and while the room is small, it’s also cosy and warm. Maybe she had a granddaughter who came for sleepovers and stayed in this room?
The last room seems to have a little writing desk, so we have dubbed it the writing room. We can only imagine the tons of letters the lady must have written here. Maybe there were love letters as well? We’ll never know!
It’s clear the old lady loved her house very much. We can only imagine all the things that happened here and the amazing life she must have led. Hopefully the new owners will take good care of her lovely home!
