get your mind outta the gutter… love everything about this 1970’s home! refurbished by the talented Dorrington Atcheson Architects out of Auckland, NZ. Check out more of their rad work here! good wood, huh?
the little pink house on the street, that one is ours! it’s not cute like a little doll house, more of a sun bleached salmon color that has been sloppily sprayed over with white paint. needless to say, it needs a little love.
a little background on the casa… we purchased this gem last winter. previously it was owned by some older lady who owned antique stores ( a lady after my own heart). however she was a bit out there, and thought art was an old 70’s green washing machine that she proudly displayed in the yard. i found this old photo of house online, overgrown and in desperate need of some tlc
here’s a photo of the house when we purchased it:
and after two very, very minor improvements here is a photo from this summer. new modern house numbers and a barn light ( not pictured). the casa has potential but man does it need a serious paint job.
here is some of my exterior inspiration for the future of our house… white, black and navy
and my favorite oldie via house of honey…
