Untouched for over 7 decades, a Paris apartment was discovered by an auctioneer after the owner Marthe de Florian passed away at 91. "It was like walking into Sleeping Beauty's house," he was stunned by the treasures lying inside, including a $3.4M Giovanni Boldini painting! Let's take a closer look!
This apartment is nothing but a time capsule. It takes us back to the early 1900s, a time of growth in the arts. Here we can see elaborately carved furniture and gallery-worthy paintings elevating the entire space. Besides the lavish decor, there's another surprise in this mansion.
Not every corner of the apartment is packed with luxurious furniture. For example, the adjacent music room has more of a homely feel. It must've been a superb place for a lovely get-together! And the room next door offers much more space to unwind!
Gilded in gold, the living room exudes class and glamor. Given that the owner was a renowned actress, it's no surprise she was in possession of such a valuable property. And if this is not enough, wait till you see the study upstairs!
Though the study is covered with dust, it has stood the test of time. From carved mirror frames to delicate vases, almost everything remains in good condition. And if you look closer, you can even spot another interesting thing about the owner.
Among the many collectibles in this room, there is one painting that stands out from the rest. It's a portrait of none other than the owner's grandmother! Turns out it's an original painting by Italian artist Giovanni Boldini, which now has an estimated worth of $3.4M!
In the bedchamber, the different hues of brown bring a sense of strength and safety to this space. Plus, the paintings and the cross on the wall also give us some clue about the owner's religious belief.
