    Fantastic house. The painted decoration is quite interesting, but the more decrepit spaces with their simpler decoration schemes are especially lovely. And the ad copy borders fittingly on the poetic.

    This would be an intimidating project, but there are beautiful possibilities! I like how the sunlight fills the upper rooms.
