I can't stop looking at this townhouse listing

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.

Buy it and dress up like Sophia Petrillo

The tiny kitchen with that chandelier over the sink made me laugh.

Silly old queen you can't take all that crap with you when it's your turn to go.

by Antique Hoarderreply 209/22/2013

Be kind, OP, I'm fairly sure the owner posts here.

Who else would be defending the frou-frou faux-Versailles look on all our "Tasteful Friends" threads?

by Antique Hoarderreply 309/22/2013

Oh honey, your are so sweet. You actually think those are antiques.

by Antique Hoarderreply 409/22/2013

All that "opulence"...and then there's the cheap bed.

by Antique Hoarderreply 509/22/2013

The banisters and the kitchen cabinets! Gulp.

by Antique Hoarderreply 609/22/2013


Just bad taste.

by Antique Hoarderreply 709/22/2013

It was beautiful in 1965.

by Antique Hoarderreply 809/22/2013

Fancy Schmancy!

by Antique Hoarderreply 909/22/2013

This looks like any Iranian-inhabited dwelling in Beverly HIlls.

by Antique Hoarderreply 1009/22/2013

I despise public housing

by Antique Hoarderreply 1109/22/2013

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."

by Antique Hoarderreply 1209/22/2013

Dear God, they should just burn it to the ground.

by Antique Hoarderreply 1309/22/2013

R10 beat me to it. Here's what they look like

by Antique Hoarderreply 1409/22/2013

Even the roaches would be terrified of the kitchen.

by Antique Hoarderreply 1509/22/2013

I bet an antique LIVES there. I also have a suspicion that there is a doll collection somewhere looming.

by Antique Hoarderreply 1609/22/2013

I had a good laugh at of this one. Thank you !

by Antique Hoarderreply 1709/22/2013

There is some fabulous stuff in there! Definitely needs some editing. It is very matronly.

by Antique Hoarderreply 1809/22/2013

That's the first thing I thought - Persian.

by Antique Hoarderreply 1909/22/2013

So, we don't call them Iranians anymore? When did that happen?

by Antique Hoarderreply 2009/22/2013

Uhh, most of them are Americans.

by Antique Hoarderreply 2109/22/2013

The Iranians are Americans? When did that happen?

by Antique Hoarderreply 2209/22/2013

When they're not Iranians because they were born in L.A.

by Antique Hoarderreply 2309/22/2013

Can anyone say Kardashian?

by Antique Hoarderreply 2409/22/2013

So...will you no longer be addressing us as 'tasteful friends'?

by Antique Hoarderreply 2509/22/2013

I don't think Persians live there at all. Their homes have that garlicy smell.

by Antique Hoarderreply 2609/22/2013

A woman lives in that townhouse. There is red nail polish and other cosmetics in the bathroom and wedding pictures here and there, along with other family photos.

by Antique Hoarderreply 2709/22/2013

Good set for the dwelling of a film noir femme fatale, of a certain age. Just one look and you know she's all kinds of trouble. (At least one of her husbands died in mysterious circumstances.)

by Antique Hoarderreply 2809/22/2013

The kind that "slips into something more comfortable" and re-appears in something with more silk brocade and tassels than one of those couches.

by Antique Hoarderreply 2909/22/2013

It's like being inside Hermione Gingold's colon.

by Antique Hoarderreply 3009/22/2013

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.

by Antique Hoarderreply 3209/23/2013

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?

by Antique Hoarderreply 3309/23/2013

[quote]Come on, there are some beautiful pieces in there.

Uh, no. Just no.

by Antique Hoarderreply 3409/23/2013

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!

by Antique Hoarderreply 3709/23/2013

It's all so prettyful!

by Antique Hoarderreply 3809/23/2013

That places screams caftan and earrings along with a turban.

by Antique Hoarderreply 3909/23/2013

Damn, those kitchen cabinets are hideous. How embarrasing.

by Antique Hoarderreply 4009/23/2013

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.
