Danish Family Open House

Our little family checked out an open house in town a couple weeks ago and I couldn't resist taking some photos. A Danish family lived there for over 50 years and there were many charming features, including this old photo that was on the fireplace mantle.

I spotted this lovely pillow with embroidered tulips on it in one of the bedrooms. Love those vintage linens!

There was a cute sitting area upstairs with green damask wallpaper.

I bet that wallpaper is several decades old, but it looks great, doesn't it?! I would love to be greeted by this sight every time I walked up the stairs.

One of the children's bedrooms (apparently the "children" are retirees now) had a cute Casper the Friendly Ghost toy! Not sure why the head was backwards...

There was also a little wooden soldier that looked like it had been well loved. This was a nice and whimsical looking room.

Again with the wallpaper! The wallpaper and teak closet shelving!

Groovy colours. =)

Unfortunately, the house was unaffordable for us, even if we were to eat Mac and Cheese every day for the next 25 years. Sigh. Oh well, dare to dream, and at least I took some photos I could share with you all.


  1. I LOVE the wallpaper! Sometimes at estate sales you're just floored by what people saw everyday, all day long, for forty some odd years since it was hung-- in this case, I am floored, but in a good way! That first print could be in a store RIGHT NOW.

  2. Wow, you took pics at an open house! Cool that you appreciate the wallpaper. I usually take it as a sign that the house is original, ie. someone lived there for 50-60 years and I am trying to calculate the cost of scraping all the wall paper off and painting. Next time I'll take time to appreciate the wall paper.
