THIS PLACE IS A MESS!
It's hard to imagine that we are counting down to our open house, which is scheduled for the first week in October. YIKES! There are still a gazillion things to do. Too many to list. But here's a glimpse at where we're at now.
Cabinets are in. Quartz Counters are in. Windows are replaced. Backsplash is in (lovely, eh?)
Here's a view through the soon-to-be glass curtain out to the courtyard. That square of plywood will soon be transformed to a vertical green wall!
FRONT YARD LANDSCAPING
Audrey, from Foxy Garden, has really outdone herself with our landscape design. She has modernized the over all aesthetic with nods to Mid Century.
HAVE A SEAT
Look at this fab bench that will be a resting spot and land right at the slight turn towards the front door of the house. Instead of Palms, we have opted for large Olive Trees.
CHECK OUT THESE RENDERS
They are rough but really helps you visualize the space. The first one is from the left side of yard, from the street. The second one is to the right of the front door, from the street.
Here are some of the plants we chose.
Here's Audrey and Moose doing drawings, on site, for the Master garden and backyard and placing plants in the backyard.
Paint is the most transformative thing. And it's funny because I'm always asking Lance, "when do we start painting?" And he always rolls his eyes and says, "I tell you this all the time: Paint is the very last thing that happens."
Well, I'm happy to report that it is now time to paint. There's not much to show yet but here are a few shots of the exterior as the paint team starts to prep.
LIVING ROOM VARNISH
So, here are some photos of the living room when we purchased the house. Remember this Mahogany paneling? Well, we love love love it. That being said, it has a yellow tinge to it. Probably because it was varnished about 70 years ago and has yellowed over time.
What to do about it?
We worked really hard with Sherwin Williams of Willow Glen and Morgan Hill to come up with a solution. We wanted something that would cut down the gray. They have a product that can be sprayed on without any sanding or prep. Did you hear that? No sanding or prep. Yippee.
Once we figured this out, then we spent a bunch of time creating the right color.
THE VIEWERS HAVE SPOKEN
We are rounding the bend to the end!
Everything is going to be coming together in the next couple weeks. God willing. So please stay tuned.
