Do not attempt to adjust your screen. This bedroom really does look like this.

Are you guys ready for this one? This is a good one. No! A GREAT ONE! This vintage Palm Springs home was built in 1969, and it looks like it was decorated right around that time as well AND THEN NEVER EVER CHANGED. Even though it was sold twice in the '90s. Both buyers did the world a favor, and left this time capsule home un-changed. And I salute them with this new vintage home tour…

Is that an upholstered coffee table? Was that a THING?

Yes, this dining room needed not one, but, TWO chandeliers.
Now this is the best room that has ever existed.

  1. I got a few minutes in. I lost it a bit at the really modest laundry room that BLINGED THE FUCK UP WITH THAT TOWEL BAR and overly fancy art work and relatively dumpy iron board. I also love how they evidently thought swinging doors were just not it when the house was built. Pocket doors and mirrored alcoves for everyone! I do wish we could see inside of some of the closed doors, though. I want to see what that wallpapered door in the hallway is hiding.

    • OMG! Those ornate (and enormous AF) towel bars kill me. Thank gawd they're there, or I wouldn't have known I was in a faaaaancy house. 😉

  2. Someone needs to buy this and then rent it out on Air BNB. I'm pretty sure that would pay the mortgage like whoa.

  3. Ok, I took the guided virtual tour and 2/9 cracked me up. It pans out into the hallway and there's that pseudo-Greek statue just peeking out of an alcove, like "hey girl, sup?" And it's looking *directly at the camera*.

  4. I walked myself around that place, got supremely lost, a little sick to my stomach, and I might come back and do it again later! You know what really got me? I was "standing" in the Scarface tub room and I did a 360 and was like "Holy shit, there are TWO shower stalls? That's the best idea … oh, wait, that ones for a toilet … that's still great but not nearly as exciting as his/her shower stalls."
    Thanks for the trip!
