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.

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?

Oh honey, your are so sweet. You actually think those are antiques.
|by Antique Hoarder||reply 4||09/22/2013|
All that "opulence"...and then there's the cheap bed.
|by Antique Hoarder||reply 5||09/22/2013|
The banisters and the kitchen cabinets! Gulp.
|by Antique Hoarder||reply 6||09/22/2013|
It was beautiful in 1965.

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

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."

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

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

Even the roaches would be terrified of the kitchen.
|by Antique Hoarder||reply 15||09/22/2013|
I bet an antique LIVES there. I also have a suspicion that there is a doll collection somewhere looming.
|by Antique Hoarder||reply 16||09/22/2013|
I had a good laugh at of this one. Thank you !
|by Antique Hoarder||reply 17||09/22/2013|
There is some fabulous stuff in there! Definitely needs some editing. It is very matronly.
|by Antique Hoarder||reply 18||09/22/2013|
That's the first thing I thought - Persian.
|by Antique Hoarder||reply 19||09/22/2013|
So, we don't call them Iranians anymore? When did that happen?
|by Antique Hoarder||reply 20||09/22/2013|
Uhh, most of them are Americans.
|by Antique Hoarder||reply 21||09/22/2013|
The Iranians are Americans? When did that happen?
|by Antique Hoarder||reply 22||09/22/2013|
When they're not Iranians because they were born in L.A.
|by Antique Hoarder||reply 23||09/22/2013|
Can anyone say Kardashian?
|by Antique Hoarder||reply 24||09/22/2013|
So...will you no longer be addressing us as 'tasteful friends'?
|by Antique Hoarder||reply 25||09/22/2013|
I don't think Persians live there at all. Their homes have that garlicy smell.
|by Antique Hoarder||reply 26||09/22/2013|
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 Hoarder||reply 27||09/22/2013|
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.)

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

It's like being inside Hermione Gingold's colon.
|by Antique Hoarder||reply 30||09/22/2013|
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 Hoarder||reply 31||09/22/2013|
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?

[quote]Come on, there are some beautiful pieces in there.
Uh, no. Just no.
|by Antique Hoarder||reply 34||09/23/2013|
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!

That places screams caftan and earrings along with a turban.
|by Antique Hoarder||reply 39||09/23/2013|
Damn, those kitchen cabinets are hideous. How embarrasing.
|by Antique Hoarder||reply 40||09/23/2013|
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.
