A townhouse in Beverly Hills on the market for a couple of months. I can't get over how many 'antiques' the owner managed to cram into this unit, and what we're seeing is probably the AFTER of a major decluttering, with the excess being kept in storage units.
MLS is 13-677749 if the link doesn't work.
If I had try to live there, the first things to go would be the awful mirrors in the LR and DR, and that Victorian bar stool contraption.
The only thing I might be tempted to keep is the faux chinoiserie bedroom furniture.
R7 is correct. Looking at the (admittedly tiny) images, I don't see one thing that constitutes a proper antique (100 years old or older.) It's just a bunch of glitzy radiator gold painted immigrant striver crap.
I realize that Southern California has a different notion of what's antique, but keep walking; it's not here. This shit could barely be passed off as "vintage."
Come on, there are some beautiful pieces in there. Just too many of them.
I met a butch guy in Silverlake once, went on a date, ended up at his place and it looked just like this but what you are missing is the smell. Pure Grandma. We didn't arrange for an encore.
I don't understand why people do that. Are they selling all this crap with the townhome? If not, than why take pictures of it? Why not move it to the side or in another room or outside temporarily?
Seriously, who thinks that looks good?

Uh, no. Just no.
My favorite is the petit point embroidered toilet seat cover. I didn't know such a thing existed.

Or a Liberace wannabe.

Well, quite. I mean, if you're going that route, get it right. Less is more!
It's all so prettyful!
That places screams caftan and earrings along with a turban.
Damn, those kitchen cabinets are hideous. How embarrasing.
Better shit has fallen off the back of a gypsy caravan.
It's sad that this rat's nest of gold-flashed gee-gaws is mistaken for "antiques", and that the popular regard for antiques has to fallen so very low that anything hideous is mistaken for anything old.
Nothing in this shithole is antique.
