My Future Home: Abandoned Men's Club





I'll blame the whirlwind blur of Christmas on the fact that I missed these images when they appeared in the New York Times last month.... if my present or future home could look a wee bit like any of the rooms in this abandoned men's club I would be one happy wandering eye.
From here.

I can see the attraction and appreciate the patina. Just be aware of the potential health problems from peeling paint, and even dust.

Very true D.C. which is why I like that all the walls in this space have been coated with a clear finish....thus preserving the wonderful patina without the addition of dust and lead-filled paint chips.

I absolutely love everything about this... especially the bedroom

Abandoned men need clubs too, it seems...

Lovely aesthetic.

Yes JWC! The bedroom with that bare bulb and draped fabric and wonderful wall and striped linens....fantastic!

And Anon...tis true, even men who are abandoned need clubs to congregate and feel less so...
