The studio is where we tend to spend most of our time when we are at The Rich Hippies House. We have had family slumber parties, movie play dates, gatherings, and dinners in this nook of the property on repeat since it was close to finished, it just has a “let’s gather” vibe. Before the feelings of wanting to be there was as strong as they are, this studio went through what looked like the seventh circle of hell. I kid you not.
Sorry for the poltergeist level grain on these photos, but that’s all that was available. We did NOT buy the compound in the condition, the people before us did. The story goes:
Lilly Pulitzer had a best friend in West Palm Beach, and that best friend used this space as his/her studio. The property then went neglected for seven years, got over grown, and all that pretty mold happened. It was a bit of a disaster, here are more before, before pictures.
I think about if we saw the compound in this state, would we have taken it on? It wasn’t in awesome shape when we did, but these pictures are pretty intimidating. These photos were taken after seven years of neglect, like I was saying. The owners who took over left the property partially renovated it and we bought it in that state. I can’t wait to show you the exterior chaos we cleaned up.
