Today we went to this stunning old home in Wilston Heights. The family are preparing it for auction. The house has been in the family since the late 1940's and they moved into it just 4 years after it was built. It is not only in very original condition but also has amazing city views.
I love the ceiling in this room and also the cabinets that divide the two spaces. Sadly the furniture was not as exciting to us.
I am a sucker for an original bathroom.
While we bought some furniture we also bought the bric a brac from the house sight unseen as the family had wrapped it all up in these 12 boxes that now fill my lounge room. Due to them spending hours packing and wrapping everything up I was unable to open them. So we had to take a "punt". Normally this has worked out in the past. Time will tell if it has this time. I will bring you the verdict tomorrow. I am already getting the "what's for tea ?" questions so openning the treasure chests will have to wait.
(Also I just wanted to add that I have had terrible trouble commenting on the vast majority of blogs. I don't know what is wrong with blogger but it is so annoying. I hope the problem is solved soon. If you havn't heard from me please know I am out there lurking ha)
