    Maybe not for everyone but I’d keep the exterior color (although when repaint time comes I’d paint it a dark blue.) And just remove the paint from the living and dining rooms. Can I keep the kitchen floor? And the blue wallpaper in the first bedroom. And that basement! I hope everything in the basement stays.

    That kitchen floor is awesome! I WISH you could buy lino like that now (at a decent price) There’s a place in the UK that makes vintagey lino in patterns full of color, but who can afford THAT!?

    My sister lived in a house that had a pattern very similar to this, but in navy, browns, and golds. It was amazing, and she hated it. She couldn’t tell when it was dirty! (Which is why I wanted it *grin*)

    I love all of the windows on the main floor of this house! Banks & banks of them! Neat LR and DR, too. But would change out the exterior paint color, rip up the carpeting, and – assuming it could come up in large pieces – give the kitchen flooring material to Kelly or natira. 😉

      I’m totally with you on the exterior color (which some would term pepto pink) and the carpeting etc. But this house is very lovely and I’m afraid y’all will have to fight me over that lino!
      That basement is a blast from the past. How in the world did they get that billiards table down there? LOL.

    It looks like Grandma will be back from the market at any minute!

    Outside colour is not something I would pick, but it looks good. I would leave it until it needed to be repainted.
    Inside wall colours could be improved. Most carpet would need to go. The hardwood looks amazing, hopefully it’s the same under the carpet.
    Kitchen lino can stay, but I’d paint in a colour that compliments. The tile counter needs to go, I really dislike them.
    The blue wallpaper in the first bedroom would stay for sure, I love it.
    The bathroom floor, not so much. With that bright tile, I’d go for a neutral floor. If it’s tile, rugs.

    Someone loves plants. I wonder what they plant in front of the fence. I would put petunias and pansies in.

    It looks like a brand new Hollywood re-creation. The owners certainly maintained her well! I love the elegant coved ceilings. While it’s a brave choice, the pink exterior would have to go.
