Spanish Charmer Altadena

Vintage 1932 Spanish Colonial Charmer in Altadena

Ok, so I have a thing with vintage.

I love vintage bags and shoes, cookie jars, and magazines. Anything that brings me back to a different time. I can daydream about living in a retro era where beehive hairdos were in and cat-eye glasses were the trend. Maybe when bell bottoms and disco first came on the scene. Or when flapper girls were selling cigarettes out of boxes strapped around their necks. Maybe the Great Gatsby himself will make an appearance.

This house is overflowing with stylish 1930’s charm while having been updated with all the contemporary trends.
