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?
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.
Here’s some decent priced beans that are floating around craigslist this week guys!

GUH. These chairs! They speak to my soul.
This isnt bad considering what they usually go for!
I love this table. It so clean and dynamic.
A neat little simple dresser for a decent price.
Seller has other items up for grabs too.
I dont know how I feel about it. I think though with the right person they could look neat.

I like lucite because it is like things are floating in the air.

Seems like refinishing this guy would make it look better eh?
Needs a lil fixing.
Hi Mimomito. It’s been too long my friends.
Far too long. Been a terrible blogger. I am sorry for that.
Here’s a couple things high to low.
I was hoping to find somehting swell to make up for my absence but did not come up with anything spectacular.
I am keeping my eyes peeled though guys!

Make an offer in Auburn
I love Rya rugs. They are so soft and colorful. Look so good with teak!
25.00 in Antelope
Neat little floor lamp for a cheap cheap price.
Man this thing is great looking. A lil too spendy for me but if you got the money spend da money! That bottom shelf is such a nice touch!
This is for the boho babes or the tiki fun.
70.00 in Roseville
Seller states that it needs to be refinished! Could be a neat little guy once it’s done.
40.00 Walnut Grove
Kinda of a cheapy starter thing.
400.00 Rya Rug in Sacramento
The location just says antique so I guess its from days of old town.
Here is me and Ben’s attempt at an Alexander Girard inspired christmas tree. After much stalling and frustratin’ myself over the right kinda paper, and the colors, buh, I decided that it isn’t exactly what I would have liked it to look like…but maybe next year we will refine! That’s a great thing about Christmas…it comes again next year. So I have come to comfort myself in saying that each year is another opportunity to make it better. That’s pretty optimistic right? YUP. YUP. That’s what I am trying to be about dear Mimomito. We shall see how long that lasts.
Paper doll garland. Sparkly oooo
Thank you for sending us your beautiful Eames-filled home with Mimomito, David!
Still haven’t sent us your holiday decor photos? Shoot ’em over to firstname.lastname@example.org !
“Papel picado (“perforated paper”) is a decorative craft made out of paper cut into elaborate designs. Although it is a Mexican folk art, papel picado is used as a holiday decoration in many countries. The designs are commonly cut from tissue paper using a guide and small chisels, creating as many as forty banners at a time.”
Serene came over yesterday and we had a delightful time making making these snowflakes.
