I thought you might be interested to see these photographs I took last year at Everglades House. It's a beautiful old house, but absolutely crying out for more Art Deco furnishings, as it's very sparsely decorated. There were however, a large sofa and chairs in beige and red, in that chunky squat unmistakably deco style, and a fantastic dressing table. But the house needs so much more furniture. I really love the windows in the photo with the lounge suite too. There is something industrial about them, but I love the shape of the panes of glass.

Apparently the bathrooms are his and hers! One for the husband and one for the wife. And the man's bathroom has an old fashioned sauna that you sit in with your head sticking out! Not sure I fancy that one, looks a bit claustrophobic, but the large bath in the ladies bathroom looks like total indulgent luxury.

A funny story
by: Melinda

The bathrooms are really gorgeous, but not very functional. One of the guides told me they'd rented the house to a advertising company, who filled the big circular bath with water and bubbles for a soap commercial. When they were finished, they pulled the plug, and the water cascaded down into the room below. Apparently the drain pipes were all disconnected years ago!
