Parade of Atomic Homes is Here!


Hi there, and Welcome to our Parade of Atomic Homes! My name is Babette and I will be your tour guide.


Now I'd like to invite each and every one of ya'll to our first home on today's tour - it's a single story ranch style called "the Delores" built in 1958. Doesn't that just sound dreamy?! Let's have a look inside, okay? Now watch your step. There's a lot of stairs to climb, isn't there? There you go! Oh, isn't this landscaping just adorable? I hear that most all of the flowers and greenery are original to the property's beginnings.

Allrighty then! As we step inside can anyone tell me what Mid-Century Modern is? Does anyone know? That's right ma'am! Mid-Century Modern is the style of decor highly popularized during the 1950's, and that's the style that we see today inside of this very home.


The Living Area
Has everyone made their way inside? Could one of your gentlemen please help Mrs. Roberts up with her walker? There we go! You just go right ahead and please make yourself feel right at home.

Oh, by the way, the owner requested that if everyone would please watch their step? And please walk around his genuine imitation Himalayan Nanny Goat Hair Rug... He is kind of overly-sensitive about that. *wink*

Thank you so much!


If everyone would line up behind me, I'll escort you to the next room on the tour. Yes, there's plenty more yet to see!

Oh, Mrs. Roberts, now there's no need for pushing and shoving like that! You'll all get your turn soon enough...

Be sure to return next time, as we continue the Tour!

Ohh, Space Commander, it's lovely! I just love all the potted plant stands in your living room.

I for one definitely cannot wait for the tour to continue.

Thank you VERY much Ruby! I wish I could find more vintage planters for all these plants ;)

Wow! I just love it!

The colors, the decor...

It looks manly man enough, but comfy at the same time.

Excellent mid-century style choices and placement.

Bravo!

Thank you and Thank you!! The entertainment wall is waiting for me to build a shelving unit after all my other to-do's have gotten done. Reupholstry of the couch and chair in a nice charcoal or a foamy green w/ black would work nice here too... One day... ;)
