More photos from Alice – a Retro Renovation re-run

Remember Alice and her yellow Geneva kitchen in Richmond, Virginia? We’ve stayed in touch, and she sent some additional photos of her time capsule house.

Here’s her update:

You see I got busy with the camera. Attached are a couple of photos of the wallpaper in the dining room of our new, old house..I love the paper and am keeping it! In case the colors aren’t clear, it’s pink and blue pheasants on pink, blue, green and cream flower stems – all on a metallic silver background! The colored areas of the paper have a feel and look as though it’s hand painted…just lovely!

And because you asked, and knowing your crowd will enjoy, this I have included a few photos of our den with what appears to be a hand-made tray ceiling; a cute little bar/liquor closet that was definitely a handy-mans delight (fyi – I would love some photos/info regarding tiki bars – or whatever bars were typical of the ’50’s); a couple of ceiling fixtures that we have inherited; and did I mention they are the most fabulous closets? I’ve included a particular closet – a top-to-bottom cedar lined closet that is approximately 12′ x 12′.

And, Alice sent photos of her aqua (mint green?) bathroom with great yellow sink and original wallpaper. Thanks again, Alice, I’m mint green with envy!

    Oh, I love that bathroom tile! I also live in Richmond, VA so it makes my heart soar to know that they are still houses here that haven’t been changed. It gives me hope.
