On 4th February 2018
From the outside, the house didn’t look like anything out of the ordinary, and even her neighbors had no idea about the surprise she’d been keeping inside.
From the outside, this 96-year-old woman’s home in Toronto looks pretty ordinary.
Nothing special, right?
But just wait…
This 'hidden gem' of a house in Toronto has been impeccably maintained by the same owner for the last 72 years.
She is now moving to a retirement community.
Breakfast nooks are as old as the Brady Bunch and, according to real estate agent Gladys Spizzirri, the wrought iron set is a rare classic.
The owner, a former seamstress, says she has always had a passion for interior design and followed what tastes she likes.
The 92-year-old has shied away from bright colors and always preferred 'tone on tone'
From floor to ceiling, this two-story detached home is decorated in perfect 1960s style.
Just look at that wallpaper!
And no proper 1950s-style home would be complete without a bona fide 'man cave' with a bar in the basement
Open fireplaces are a common feature, to help with the harsh Canadian weather.
The family bathroom is also pink, but with matte gold accents to match.
The master bedroom features bright, bold gemstone purple, lilac walls, purple carpeting, and a fuchsia settee.
The homeowner’s daughter remembers how her mother’s style wasn’t complete without the color pink.
No one on the street ever talked about the home or knew what it looked like inside.
But now everyone is well aware of incredible design, and its 96-year-old decorator and keeper.
