Rescue Me Please :: I'm a 1930's "Between the Wars" house!
in the "between the wars" style,
of these fabulous flowers.
Soft apricots, burnished golds, dark olive greens, palest smokey blue,
with hints of chestnut-hued timbers,
and lots of creamy white as a background.
but you know, a little plastic surgery,
just a bit of tweaking,
wouldn't be out of the question.
I probably don't really need my second kitchen,
but, being partial to allowing my guests a martini or two,
I wouldn't mind sacrificing one of my kitchens to make a bar instead.
After all, the 1930s were all about opulence.
Who wants to know about the Great Depression and serious things,
when we can dream the Hollywood glamour lifestyle instead?
So yes, I'll have an oyster-grey cut-velvet sofa thank you,
with feather-filled cushions and gilt legs.
And over scaled candelabra, 1930s style, for the table.
There, that's better.
A bit of art deco.
Bold and confident, lots of oomph. Very 1930s glam.
Ok, I need you to take a leap of imagination now!
Many 1930s homes have an underlying dramatic graciousness,
and with just that little bit of thought applied,
they can be truly worthy of all the glamour of the era.
And gorgeous to live in now.
But it's probably just as likely I will be demolished.
Am I worth rescuing, then, do you think?
