if these walls could talk…

Mr. Quake & I are house shopping. In some instances it’s so interesting to get a glimpse into other people’s lives. We happened upon an especially swanky basement that made me so curious what kind of lifestyle would have preserved such decor. Mottled pink/orange/red shag carpeting wall to wall & even up part of one wall as well as upholstered to the seat of a bench. The focal point of the room was the red/orange Malm fireplace centered within a round brick circle filled with quartz landscaping rock. The yellowed walls had tube-sconces every 3 feet…we searched in vain to find the switch to turn them on & the overhead globe chandelier lamps off to see what the mood lighting effect would be. All I could conclude was that these people had to have been old school swingers. There is just no other logical explanation for such a room to have survived into the 21st century.
