      I love that color and would be very happy with it, though I do have a nagging feeling that the bathroom originally had some cool tile that was vanquished. I’d leave the turquoise paint but I’d probably replace the floor.

    Great house! That living room “curtainage” is intense! She liked heavy duty curtains and lots of them…

    An interesting house in a nearby small Texas town. Not a lot of economic opportunity in Goldthwaite these days with petroleum industry downturn. I feel it’s a bit overpriced for the area, but who knows? Love the kitchen (I’m jealous) , the bathroom and the light fixtures. I’m sure it will look much better with that carpet gone.

    Total time machine! It has a certain swanky appeal. Bouffant hair-do’s, pearls, and legs crossed at the ankles. Cocktails and pinochle after dinner. Period decor only, please. The colors amaze me. Carpet, kitchen, bathroom must stay as is. Always.

    Oh, that pink kitchen! And then the pink bathroom, too! Wonderful!

    It looks like a set for a movie! Maybe Joan Crawford or Bette Davis!

    I was half expecting Frank Morgan to step out from behind those curtains. Love the turquoise bathroom and the pink border in the kitchen linoleum.

      Yes! That border is really nice. I like it more than the greenish main color.

    My Granny had a friend named Thailia (pronounced they’ll – yuh) whose husband built her a MCM that looked A LOT like this on the inside. She was the most fabulous woman I have ever known. I hope nothing changes inside. It’s a blast from the past!

    This house is too cool for school. I know it is not up with current decorating trends with the green drama drapes, sea foam green carpet and pink accents but I would feel guilty changing anything. This is a true time capsule that was apparently done for a lady by a professional decorator. Not my taste but I’d live here and love look on the face of guests when they walk in, kodak moments!

    This house looks like ice cream no….sherbert. Yum.

    Not enough “wow’s” in the world for this one! I was not expecting the swanky vintage interior based on the outside. The interior actually reminds me a lot of my grandmother’s house; brings back the memories!

    Wow……that is A LOT of sea foam green. The drapes & carpeting would really have to go & some of that pink would need toning down.

      If someone doesn’t like all that pink they’d do better finding another house rather than toning down this one. And really, what IS the house without pink and sea foam and drapes and carpeting?

    I think Miss Piggy & Kermit got married after all & this is where they lived!……. the green for him, the pink for her! πŸ™‚

    Looks like 50’s decor.

    It wouldn’t matter how tired and grumpy you were when you came home from work…just a few steps in to that kitchen would cheer anyone up!

    I sooooo hope the eventual buyer won’t decide the kitchen needs “updating.”

    Time to dust off the kitten heels, Chanel suit, pill box hat and white gloves and move to Texas, ya’ll. Are pink Martinis a ‘thing’??!

    The pink kitchen cabinets are my favorite thing in the house, but I also like the turquoise bathroom a lot. Another cool feature is that odd built-in storage/shelves unit in the first bedroom.

    There is so much to unpack here. Like…check out that gold arched thing in the gold-and-white bathroom. So awesomely puzzling! Looks pretty neat with the gold-veined mirror though.

    Finally…I like that lamp in the last picture. But I think it wants to run away and find a more suitable home. *sniff*

      Adding built-ins to rooms like that must have been a “thing” in this part of Texas in the late 50’s. Our house in Strawn has some just like that. They were added to the sleeping porch when windows were put in it. We use it as the master bedroom. I know at least one other 1920’s house here that had them added then as well. I love mine! We even have a pink bathroom that looks a lot like this one, although our second bathroom is blue.

    I wonder what the original front door looked like; it was probably more compatible with its dramatic surroundings than what’s there now.

    I better get married before I move in there. Fun house for sure.

    I just adored this. I’d find it hard to return it to the original interior look. Loved the bathroom! That living room…wow!

    This place is so cool! The kitchen stays as it lays…please!
