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.
I haven’t been back to work since Wed’s. GUH.
Here’s some Craigslists finds to get us through this gloomy Monday.
I am gonna put myself out there and say I think these guys have potential to make a space look good. Especially if you are going for an eclectic bohemian look.
Holy smokes! Get this to throw in some Girard charm in your life.
Long and low in bootiful condition.

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.
I think this thing is pretty dope:

… and thanks to Angela, Zach found out about it and picked it up in Wilton, CA. Here is a photo of the table in its new home:
Thanks to Angela and Zach for sharing with Mimomito. We encourage more of it from everyone! :)
$375.00 in Sonoma. I’m a fan of throwing plants in the middle of things – atriums in the middle of your house, or plants in the middle of your coffee table. Sure! Imagine the succulent garden you could have living in this sucker. Oh my.
Here’s more eye fodder for the indoor/outdoor lovin’.
