This sweet couple built their home in the 1950's and remained there all their days. As you might imagine, the estate is definitely transitional, and you can see where the couple started housekeeping in the 50's as you follow the progression of their life together throughout the decades. It would have been awesome to have found a time capsule of the 1950's; however, that wasn't the case. Those are so rare. I mean, how many of us can live in one place without change as the world changes around us? Very few, and this couple was no exception.
Once the contents of the home are cleared completely and it's time to focus on getting the house ready for market, we'll turn our attentions to the arduous task of updating a home that was built specifically for this pair. Never was there a consideration for resale as they made changes to the home. Once we get to that, you'll see exactly what I mean!
But until then, I give you more of the fun stuff!
Each one unique.
Wouldn't a collection of these be an ethereal piece of wall art in a bedroom? Imagine what a striking wall of color that would create. Yum!
This green one is actually handpainted on silk with bamboo ribs. I love how the light shines through to show the painted work.
Can you say, kawaii? Okay, now can you define kawaii?
