You can imagine the lady of the house doing so in style – donning romantic fashion, wearing blood red lipstick and playing the piano with great flair. Gracefully she floats up and down the dramatic staircase while she looks up at the beautiful chandelier, proud to call this place her home. Something about the house and its atmosphere evokes a nostalgia for the Havana of yesteryear, but at the same time we see ourselves in the city’s future; a perfect and exciting prospect.

The beauty of something brand new is undeniable and blatant, but the beauty in something aged runs far deeper because it reflects history and the strength to stand the test of time. It’s something we appreciate about Cuba and this mansion, which is a precious gem because it perfectly captures the deep beauty of the island.

Every street and corner tells a story and stands as a time capsule storing memories of sound and sight – from music and dancing to revolution and change. Similarly, each room tells a story which leaves a mark on every person who enters its doors. Each room holds memories of lives led at this address – meals prepared and shared, children born and raised, music danced to and love reflected. It’s not hard to imagine a lady of the house being the crowing glory of this wonderful space, being what a husband and children treasure and the force that keeps that gets her family through each day.

So even now, with the house far different from what it looked like when it was brand new, we’re reminded to live as the people who lived in this house did – floating, laughing, dancing and daring to be something that will be special for generations to come.

The value of family is after all something that is at the heart of Cuba’s rich culture. It’s the spirit of appreciating the fact that mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles and cousins will always be there for you, regardless of the direction life takes. It is knowing that comfort and support are available and there’s no need to search far for it. Love is at the center of it all, and it is the energy that sails through the house, even today.

This wasn’t a space made for just existing – every aspect of it shows that it’s meant for living fully, living happily and living with love. So even now, with the house far different from what it looked like when it was brand new, we’re reminded to live as the people who lived in this house did – floating, laughing, dancing and daring to be something that will be special for generations to come.
