A salon worker has taken the internet by storm after sharing an unusual find in his rented apartment building.
On Saturday, Amy Jane – who uses the TikTok handle amyjane911 – shared a video from inside Adele’s Hair Beauty and Wellbeing in Runcorn, England. With more than 820,000 views and thousands of likes, the unusual discovery shocked TikTok.
After removing a damp wall to see where the excess moisture was coming from, she discovered an entire indoor garden in a secret room.
Amy said Newsweek“We are in our sixth year at the show and the owner was having work done to lower the level. After removing the wall panel under the stars, they came across this piece.
“Adele and the girls couldn’t believe their eyes when they saw what was inside.”
Behind the wall panel was an arch blocked by sandstone rubble, with a life-size mirror on the wall and what appears to be an old plastic fountain.
“Just above are square, cube-shaped glass skylights that can be seen on the street floor outside the main living room window.”
In February, new homeowners in Illinois found old secret door plans while renovating their century-old home. Similarly, another man found a secret room hidden behind a false wall in his pantry, prompting netizens to comment, “Heck ya! More square footage.”
TikTok users were impressed with the show’s discovery, flooding the comments to discuss the video.
“You all opened the Chamber of Secrets,” said one commenter, while another wrote, “A fully equipped beauty treatment room with a garden of tranquility!”
Many viewers said the secret discovery looked like an atrium. A common feature of medieval architecture, an atrium was an open courtyard that usually had a covered walkway to the sides. Frequently found in churches and palaces, in modern buildings they are used to create a connection between indoors and outdoors, adding light and style.
“It’s a hidden dream,” said another commenter. “That’s where Bruno has been,” joked one Encanto– referent user.
One TikTok user suggested, “I would definitely keep it and try to restore it and do what you can to keep the rest of the building healthy with it.”
Amy works at the salon, owned by Adele, along with a range of other technicians, including beautician Erica and stylist Becka. “Ericka said it was scary,” Amy explained. “But Becka was interested in the story. I love it and I think it’s magic.”
Although some staff were spooked by the discovery, the salon plans to keep this unusual feature. “We hope to replace the entrance to the room with clear Perspex and make it a permanent feature at Adele’s Hair Beauty and Wellbeing,” Amy said.
