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.

I dubb this spider chair. Because it looks like a spider to me.

75.00 in Martinez
I’ve been out for awhile. Sorry dudes. Crazy last couple of months that have just kept me glued to the couch, with a stack of mint oreo cookies, sleepy time tea, and Mad Men on repeat. I’ve yelled at Draper, I’ve cried with Sally, hooted and rooted for Peggy, and have attempted to assist Sterling and company with sales. I’am ready to do other things with my life. I need to do other things with my life. Thankfully Toni and Serene have taken care of you all in my absence. Woot woot for book shots and Back in the day fam bam photos. Ah right ah right less get to the busy-ness. Stuff.

Craigslist: Milwaukee

3 Feb

I got this atlas see… from 1970. It has maps of the different states, and the different production and manufacturing that was coming out of what state at the time, and how much the state grossed. For example, the agricultural states versus the states producing  materials like paper and furniture. So consequentially I am just looking through Craigslist all over the place. Second one is Milwaukee!


180.00 for the pair.
