There is a home in St. Louis that is preserved in time with wonderful mid-century furnishings and appliances. It's preserved so beautifuly because the family spent their time living on the lower level. This brings to mind all kinds of potentially creepy scenarios, maybe because I've read too much Steven King and watched too many scary movies. I don't think I could live in the house because my imagination would be running wild, but I would love to buy most of the furnishings.
Please view the slideshow for authentic mid-century living (or rather not living).
