So funny - it reminds me of my grandparents house. They bought a new house in 1971 and, like the good Italians they were, bought a new set of white velvet and carved wood couches and chairs.

Three things:
1 - Three people (including one child) + one dog + one house built in 1927 with no closets on the main floor = clutter.

3 - The worst of all, our only bathroom. Only 5x8, has the original cast iron tub that wasn't cleaned for years by a previous owner, two old-fashioned lights on hanging chains, only one works, and 1970s-era tiled floor, walls, and entire ceiling with a horrible combo of turquoise and speckled oatmeal cream tile.
