This California real estate listing is like a time capsule to the past.
Once in a while we get access to a midcentury home in Palm Springs that has gone untouched since it was originally decorated. Most of the time, the houses are eclectic and a little jarring, but still somewhat tasteful. This Palm Springs home that recently hit the market is basically the king of all untouched midcentury homes. It tests the boundaries of good taste, even for 1969, which is when it was originally built.
The 3,350 square-foot, three-bedroom home has garnered attention from all over the world because it is just that vintage, and includes details like custom-made canopy beds and couches, and hot pink carpet in one of the bathrooms. It also offers a den with a wet bar and mirrored backsplash, a pool, and a Jacuzzi.
This house is where heavy velvet and busy wallpaper go to die, but somehow the color scheme and patterns work together, as long as you keep in mind that the design aesthetic comes from another time. To be completely honest with you, the décor is so wrong that its right, and the tall green chairs in the dining room that perfectly match both the drapes and the carpet are so ugly that somehow they loop back around to being strangely attractive.
The only thing that has been updated in the house is the kitchen, but the rest of the décor has been left untouched, and is in great condition.
The home is listed at $850,000, so if you are a buyer who loves the appeal of truly vintage décor, or suffers from complete color blindness, maybe a move to Palm Springs is in your future.via ]
