The girliest vintage home you’ll ever see

White, girly, fringy, vintage-y. You could TOTALLY see Hollywood A-listers lounging and smoking in this living room. Photos courtesy of Redfin.com

This interior of this Rolling Meadows, Illinois home, built in 1967, is EXACTLY what I would imagine every famous Hollywood starlets’ home looked like. Or, as the real estate listing says,

Welcome to the world of mid-century modern. The cast of “Mad Men” would be right at home in this vintage, pristine home.

So let’s don our sheer pink nighties, fluffy mules, and take a trip back in time to the girliest home (and OMG, glittery pink bathroom!) I’ve ever seen.

Check out that vintage wall art!
Is that seriously vintage bakeware in the ovens? I love it.
I absolutely love that the white brick from the vintage fireplace wraps around one wall.
This bedroom makes me feel like you should always be in girly dresses, singing, and primping yourself before the floor to ceiling mirrors.
Pink bath fixtures, shiny wallpaper, glass jars full of powder puffs, and a glittery wall divider. Homies, meet the girliest-ass bathroom you'll ever see.
Finally, all starlets need to have a fancy outdoor patio on which to entertain guests while you have fancy cocktails.

Okay, so who’s with me in LOVING this girly vintage home? Or are you rolling your eyes and going, “Megan seriously!?”

  1. “Okay, so who’s with me in LOVING this girly vintage home? Or are you rolling your eyes and going, “Megan seriously!?””

    Can’t it be both?! πŸ™‚

    • Yes! If you’re rolling your eyes and saying, “Megan, seriously, I’m LOVING THIS HOUSE!”

  2. I don’t even know if I like this or not! I do know I could never live in it. It’s like the most precious dollhouse meets Hollywood meets sterile. It’s so fluffy, yet so so tidy.

    • In the early 90s my grandma redecorated her almost-never-used living room in pink. Pink walls, pink ceiling, pink carpet, pink floor-to-ceiling curtains, and furniture that included some pink upholstery. Since everything matches it WORKS for the room, but I do say it feels like you’re inside a stomach. πŸ™‚

  3. reminds me of a friends parents house growing up, the pastel shades and marble, the house was not mansion sized, it’s not my cup of tea at all so i’m in the rolling eyes group i’m afraid. The bubblegum pink bathroom suite *shudder* just need knitted doll toilet roll covers!

  4. I think I would never leave the pink bathtub with its pink overhead light. Ever. Ever ever ever. Give me a bottle of Mr. Bubble to add and I’m gone.

  5. I kind of love it! In a very “kitschy-cute girly vintage” sort of way…if that makes any sense.

    The only thing I’d change are the bedsheets. I hate traditional rose print. And maybe the patio too…looks a little cheap.

  6. I’m into the couch and the fringe there, the rest makes me queasy in a sort of hallucinogenic Kubric-y kinda way..

    • Ooh, it IS Kubric-y, isn’t it? I think you just nailed why I love this place so much.

    • OMG! I didn’t even notice that. I thought it was an opening into the living room. But no, no I think that is a highly polished mirrored fridge. Wow.

  7. Totally impractical, totally not me…and yet…and yet…

    I still want to live in it! It’s like someone opened my head and whacked my brain with a vintage brick and now I can’t think straight.

  8. So I agree with that pink chair being amazing, and that back patio is ridiculously awesome, but I just don’t understand the “vintage” thing that people have!

  9. It’s sort of “Gone with the Wind 2000.”

    Speaking of which, someone needs to make that movie. HA!

  10. I am DYING to know something about the person who lived in this home! DYING, I tells ya!

  11. I am totally loving those kitchen cabinets! And I like the pink tub with shiny wallpaper and bathroom chandelier. The rest of it I think would drive me insane.

  12. Very glamourous! I love that bathroom! Ohhhhh, sooooo pretty! The rest of the interior is a bit too white for me to live in or visit, I’m a notorious coffee/food spiller and I can’t even really wear white without disgracing myself! But that pink bathroom, wow! I could see myself luxuriating in there for days πŸ™‚

  13. Pink Cotton Balls in the glass jar! I am dying! (No pun intended). I just want to twirl around in the bathroom singing “I Enjoy Being A Girl” from Flower Drum Song.

  14. This looks like my great-aunt’s house and I mean that in the most awesome way possible. Love it!
