Introducing Willow Glen Way

Introducing Willow Glen Way

Yes, I know. We said we were taking a break.

But we couldn't resist this little gem.

Lance and I have walked by this house for years. Once in awhile we'd see an older man come in and out in his 70's Cadillac. We would always talk about what elements were salvagable and what we'd do if it were ours. 

Our Mid-Century Modern Flip

Our Mid-Century Modern Flip

There's no doubt that the best part of house flipping are the BEFORE & AFTERS. 

There is something so satisfying about seeing the BEFORE & AFTER comparisons, especially if it's been shot from the same angle. After doing a few homes and making the mistake of not shooting the correct angles, I've learned my lesson. This time, we did a better job of anticipating the most profound design changes. The only ones which aren't represented are the areas that were completed gutted and reconfigured.

Please join us to see what we did to bring this amazing house to life.

Dark Walls. Dark Rooms.

Dark Walls. Dark Rooms.

I find myself drooling over these magnificent, dark rooms in magazines and on Pinterest. But I am sort of intimidated to do it. My own house is all bright white (White Dove to be specific). So, with the exception of my Teal Pool Bathroom, there's nowhere to do it. 

And, since we've been flipping homes, I've tried to stay on the safe side, design-wise, wanting to make choices that are interesting, but appeal to a larger audience. 

But things are changing!

Weaver Bathroom Plans

It's been a busy time at Weaver. In the last 2 weeks, drywall went up, windows were installed, exterior siding finished. Which means what? 

We're ready for tile!

This is the largest house we've done. And with the addition of the new full bath in the checkerboard bathroom, we're up to 3 bathrooms to do! That's a lot of design decisions. And heaps and heaps of tile. 

Reclaimed wood is re-cool

I THOUGHT THE WHOLE RECLAIMED WOOD THING WAS A TREND. COMING TO AN END. 

However, a small, creative shop in Willow Glen, Studio Terra Amico, is making me and others question that fact. I mean, really. Not only do they have a rad store front (featured below) but they have also done design for some of the most notable restaurants in the area, Orchard City Kitchen and The Table, to name a few. And now we can add Google to their roster. They are designing items and spaces for them up and down the peninsula!
