Appearances can be deceiving, and no one knows this better than Gladys and Carla Spizzirri. When the Toronto-based real estate agents were first contacted by a 96-year-old seamstress who wanted to sell her decades-old home, they didn’t think anything of it.
But when they walked inside the old woman’s house for the first time, they were speechless.
From the outside, the home built in the 1940s, looks typical of the Bloor West Village neighborhood.
But it’s the inside of the home that really shines.
The owner had lived in the home for 70 years. Although a seamstress by trade, she always thought she had an eye for interior design.
She had a great sense of a muted color palate, mixing seafoam with golds and warm pinks in this comfortably feminine living room.
The formal dining room is very archetypal of the 1960s with a matching dining set and buffet table.
The curved edges and monochromatic scheme of this kitchen are keeping with the late 1950s and early 1960s style.
