Without Further Ado....We're in!
It's been a whirlwind 3 weeks, with all our friends pitching in to make this giant undertaking happen. So much kindness and generosity has fallen our way, it's simply overwhelming. I adore our friends.
Just finished 2 weeks or minor safety reno (updating old house for electrical, etc), and far too many strange men in our house... kitties are adjusted, and all is well, but I'm exhausted!
I don't even have the energy to put nice borders on these photos.... but I didn't want to wait another minute to share...
The entry to this Mid-Century Modern
Our house makes rainbows....
Looking from the front door in. You are seeing the realtor's photos, with the previous owners' furnishings.
Looking back at the front door. See the window? That is an interior patio... laundry room door at the right end, stained glass window at the left end (that makes rainbows).
Looking from dining table past rock wall, past living room to hallway entry (two offices, a bathroom and the master suite).
Peaking around that rock wall... the living room (above photo and below photo).
If we about-face, and head back toward dining... into the kitchen... (again, that window... inner patio)
Kitchen from laundry room doorway... far sliders lead out to pool...
View from sliders toward kitchen and laundry door.....
Laundry room! Right door: out to garden shed and terraced garden. Left side: guest bath, then guest room (which they have as an office).
Below... laundry room view of the inner patio
This is what they call the family room, just beyond the built-in display bar from the dining room. B has his piano and 2 guitars in here, so for us, in addition to lots of bookshelves and books, it will be called "The Music Room." Very open. (far view...hallway again).
Looking from hallway entry back at The Music Room. Kitchen doorway on left. Right: more sliders out to the pool.
This room is now a soothing aqua, and I am sitting in here with the wall of louvers, typing this little post. I love my new office. :)
I love this hallway... it makes me think... Star Trek... lol But it's so cheery.
Outside seating area before the pool, just outside the living room...
...and my very first flower shot from the new house.... the hummingbirds love these. :)
How about a better visual?
The bedroom above the master below the living are now offices.
A lot of these are wide-angle Realtor photos. A few are my photos. :)
But you get the gist.
The reason I am not showing the current state of affairs: Box City. And ... we chose not to bring any furniture with us, except 2 beds, 2 desks, a couch and some folding chairs. Our stuff is not Mid-Century Modern, and we will have to start all over. A big adventure, which I will share! Wait til you see the huge fun variety of Mid Century Modern furniture and decor! :)
Done with reno, but a ton of unpacking and organizing awaits. And B isn't getting any less busy as the film gallops toward its last 6 weeks.
I'll share more very soon. I've missed blogging, and am anxious to dive back in! We've already made one adventure to Palm Springs, land of Mid-Century. There will be photos!
Hope you're all having a wonderful August!
~Shephard, so happy :)
