Longtime reader Femme1 – aka Deb – has sent in photos from her Mom’s house. The house includes a time capsule message hidden behind the medicine cabinet – the best!
Yummy bathroom – note the floor and how it combines 2×2’s and 1x1s [Deb notes that this picture was taken as she was removing gray paint that had dripped on the floor years ago ]. When you get to the Gallery of photos, take a look at the bathroom and how it combines pink and blue — they look great together. These 50s pastels were so versatile. And yes, how about that front door – swoon! Erwins – what do you think?
Thank you, Deb!
Here are the long promised photos of my Mom’s bathroom from her 1957 ranch house. It’s not completely original, and the sink and cabinet were replaced a long time ago. I also threw in pics of the front door and trim. If she ever sells the house, I’m taking the door with me! I’ve never seen such an intricate window in an M-C house.
There’s also a pic of a message my husband found when he was replacing the bathroom medicine cabinet. The house was built by an Italian man, and it has all sort of ceramic tile details (see the pink and blue tile with marble strips on the front porch) and lots of pebble planters. The message says “Dear Nono” (Italian for “grandfather”) “Don’t close this. Love, the Voloppis.” I felt like we’d uncovered something archaeological! Apparently, either his grandchildren or someone else close enough to call him Grandpa helped with building the house.
