Home, Sweet Homes: Heather and David’s Carmichael Pad

8 Sep

So, this is a home tour that unfortunately got lost in the shuffle and kerfuffle of a Mimomito identity crisis. Thanks to the wonderful Heather and David for not sending rocks through our windows for taking so long to post this. It has likely been almost A YEAR since they welcomed us into their home to poke around and take photos. Thank you for your patience and kindness to allow us in your lives and beautiful home. I personally know that you both have added new items and pieces to your home, so perhaps this’ll be like a walk down memory lane, ha! Now, finally, Heather and David Hadley’s Home Tour.

Where is your home located?
Carmichael, Ca

When was your home built and when did you move in?
Built in 1957, bought home in 2010 / 3bd, 2.5ba 1800 SF

 Why did you choose your home?
Good neighborhood; the layout; original hardwood floors; updated kitchen and granite counter-tops; but most importantly (according to David) the game room with a 1970’s built-in bar.

 What attracted you to mid century design?
In my mid-20s, I rented an old one-bedroom apartment in Midtown Sac.  I fell in love with the mid-century original features.  It had a pink bathtub, elephant gray tiling and toilet, the kitchen was galley style and had stainless steel counter tops.  I embraced the vibe, and carried that feeling into our new home.

Lunch Break

12 Nov

On my “freedom hour” I stopped by 57th Street to finally put money down on the couch Alan and I have been eyeballin’ in Cheryl’s booth. Here are some other treats she currently has back there. I’m pretty sure both the desk and the dresser are under $100.00 right now! As for the couch, well I had to get back to work and we’ll be picking it up tomorrow evening.

Around Town: Trolling the 57th Street Antique Mall

5 Sep

Decided to go on a bike ride and stop being such a slob, but of course needed to set a good destination to get excited about riding to. THE ANTIQUE MALL OF COURSE! Where I will maul antiques with my eyes!

Wee away we go! Thank bejeebus Sacramento is so sunny and warm that we can still be riding around in shorts and skirts. Unlike San Francisco where I used to live – where it’d  be foggy and bummer-inducing. Yeah. I said it.

Also to note – Most everything is 20% OFF the listed price or more at the 57th street antique mall. KEWL PRICES, SWELTERING DEALZ AND STEALZ.

LET’S GET IT PERCOLATIN’. $12.00 for this stout man.

Alan inspecting the hardware. The base is a nice walnutty wood, which is repeated in the top of the lamp in a long wooden neck – which is being covered by a big ugly shade which has got to hit the wicky road. $45.00.

I guess this picture is blurry because I was excited. $340.00 for this drop-leaf table and chair set.
