Let’s go shopping to fill our homes and hearts with nostalgic stuff for gifts or for us…

This seriously eccentric house for sale is straight out of our becoming-a-wild-weird-aunt dreams

This seriously eccentric house for sale is straight out of our becoming-a-wild-weird-aunt dreams

This is the “Lion Gate Estate”: your new #housegoals for when you get to that age where you have ZERO SHITS TO GIVE. Just flip through the first few photos and then just try to stop. It’s a melange of kitsch, retro weirdness, and something you’ll never forget. And maybe seriously want? I leave that to you and your tendency to go a little wild with decor. Because this one DOES. And I’m digging it.

Will you opt for the 1966 Cadillac Fleetwood sedan, the baby grand piano, and the 1950s-era appliances? Take a peek and seeee…

The most ’80s room of all time (time after time)

Hold the phone! (The landline kind — you know, the one that’s wall-mounted and has one of those extra long cords?) I found THEE MOST ’80s ROOM OF ALL TIME. This room looks like it should be a set of an (early era MTV) music video. Or maybe a set piece from Earth Girls Are Easy. It shocked me to my core and then rocked me all night long, because it was so unexpected!

Tactile warmth and friendliness: The joys of refinishing radiators

While some people may dislike them for their industrial appearance and sturdy presence within a room, I love radiators’ tactile warmth and friendless and the simple beauty of a molded decorative radiator. And, after a little TLC, our salvaged radiators are truly beautiful! Have a few radiators in your home that need some love, or are looking to install some? Here’s some tips and tricks to beautify your radiators…

This “grandiose” Palm Springs home hasn’t changed since the 1969!

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…
