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 thought I’d share this nifty company School House with ya’ll –  just in case some of you were not aware of it’s being!
They don’t sell very Mid Century Modern items, but more in the Art Deco style. Which is cool for all you folks who have one of those houses built prior to the 1960s, with rounded corners and glassblock accents! Our friends just bought a beautiful two bedroom Deco style house in Land Park, and I could see that neighborhood of houses benefiting from this website :D

Sometimes older houses get their original lighting taken out and replaced with wispy leaf sconce that have gold specks on the glass. I know, I HAD ONE – and I’m sure there’s someone else out there reading this blog who understands what I am talking about. Another terrible thing about losing an original sconce is that almost all new sconces look like wispy leaves and finding vintage ones in good condition is damn near impossible.



School House would be a great solution for anyone who has a bootiful craftsman, artdeco home that previous owners remodeled in the 80’s or 90’s, and would like to bring it back to it’s original glory. Or it’s great for those of us who just like vintage designs!

They also sell numbers, hinges, and a whole lot more. Check ’em out to see if there is anything there that you have been looking for! School House Electric & Supply Co.
