I love all things vintage. Perhaps it all started when ‘vintage’ things became something of a trend some years ago, but what’s for sure is that as a rather traditional gal, I’m attracted to classic things with plenty of soul. I find such things so charming and compelling. Of all vintage things though – little has impressed or blown me away as much as this gem I recently discovered. It consists of a house – an entire house to be exact- that was left untouched, unmodified and meticulously maintained by its elderly owners over several decades. The discovery emerged when its 96-year-old owners at last decided to sell the house, which they amazingly had in their possession for 72 years. The home came to fame when the real estate agent mandated to sell the house entered inside – and was blown away by what she found. Step inside – I guarantee that whether you love vintage or not, this house will blow you away.
From its gorgeous entrance to the backyard, the Toronto, Canada house is quite literally a perfectly preserved time capsule from the 50s.
Enjoy your visit in time with the gorgeous photos below:

Adorable kitchen. Notice the pink phone!
Kitchen nook. This is really taking me back to another era.
The formal dining room. Needless to say, no cell phones at this table!

Hopefully, the new owners like purple 🙂
