I've been coming across a lot of photos of the Chatsworth ranch and have been trying to figure out a layout.  Some of these photos i posted before but wanted to do a thread where I could put some together.

 

I've been trying to figure out the layout of some rooms.  I came across a few bedroom photos so for this post I'll do that.

 

My best guess based on this photo is that the bedroom may be on the right side of this photo off camera range.

This set of windows would run along the back.  Also I noticed in this pic a few things.  In the other corner (reflected in the mirror) is a photo on the wall.  I think it may be Lucy.  Second the mirrors look to be closet doors.  What is interesting is the bedroom dosn't look all that large when you put these photos together to try and figure out all 4 walls.

This photo has the same mirror looking closet doors but based on the reflection and how the furniture is laid out might be a different room.

I think you may be right. I don't know if I ever saw this one before. The choice of photos they have of themselves is nice. I like that Lucy has that picture of herself as a kid on the shelf unit. Not sure about the one 2 shelves down. Looks like someone on the phone.

The Arnazes are standing in their backyard, facing south... The bedroom was, indeed, to  our right (their left), but on the opposite side of the house, facing north... The room immediately back of them was a sunporch type of room that Desi added in the late 1940s...

Oh thank you so much. Always thought the sun room was original.

The window in the bedroom makes more sense now. It didn't seem to match those in the back of the house.

I think I may have some pre sunroof photos now I know it was an add on.

I think the nice word is homey. I could not live with that wall paper. I also notice a large amount of nick necks which I also hate. What makes it all ok is that you know she 100% decorated it.

Wasn't it reported that the colors of the bedroom were yellow and gray? She seemed to love yellow.

I think, yes, for it's TIME, it was what was in fashion back then.  It was a small comfortable house, sort of like her Ogden Street digs, a little bit more opulent here and there, love the mirrors in the bathroom.  Hate Early American furniture, but here, it looks ok, sort of like her last I Love Lucy set in the country.  I too hate wallpaper, the bed needs a huge painting behind it instead of a small picture which looks lost.  The only time Lucy lived in a fancy well decorated place was her New York apartment, by Paula Stewart, which was featured in Architectural Digest.  Wish Paula had done her Roxbury digs over, but then, everybody on that street was stuck in the fifties as far as décor was concerned.

I agree that there was too much empty space over the bed.  I have noticed a change on that wall though.  In the Yapp book there is a similar photo of her sitting on the bed.  Similarities I noticed are same bed spread and dust ruffle.  Same nightstands and lamps.  There are 2 nice additions though.  There is now a big chest at the foot of the bed.  It’s on the simpler side but very classy looking.  If you have the room I always think you need something like that at the foot of the bed if you don’t have a footboard.

 

Second the space over the bed is taken up with 3 shelf units spaced over the bed.  I think the problem with doing a painting is dealing with the wallpaper.  I have wallpaper in my kitchen (not my choice) and I had to be selective in what photos I hung there as it can really get distracting with wallpaper.

The photo above of her on the bed seems to be early 40s, where the Yapp book photo I think is more around 1948 based on the length and style of her hair.

I would have a very large painting over the bed BUT, I would have taken down that wallpaper first, LOL!

So now that we know the sunroom was an add on the following photos are what I'm thinking was the original porch.

Once the porch was completed I'm thinking this is from inside it.  If you look at the all over shot you can sort of make out these chairs and the same type of window.

Isn't it funny how with dogs, you can see the happiness in their faces?  One of them ain't so chipper though, must have been old.

The bottom two photos above in the group posted by "Luvsbdway" are indeed inside the added-on porch/sunroom in the post at the very top of this page...

Is this too at the ranch? I see some similarities but don't see it all together.
