white rock home tour

Over the weekend, The Husband and I enjoyed the White Rock Home Tour (for the home tour, click on Portfolio and then Home Tour). For $12, we were able to tour five mid-century modern homes in our neighborhood of Lake Highlands. I always look forward to this home tour, and this year had some really amazing houses. One home (above) wasn't actually mid-century at all. It was built in the last couple of years but was modeled after the mid-century style. I was swooning the whole time. The owner, Jonathan Delcombre, designed the green home, which is incredibly energy efficient. The other four homes were built between 1950 and 1963, and most of them contained mid-century antiques and styling. I felt a gushing of pride just knowing these people are my neighbors. And I also now have some great ideas for home-improvement projects. We are gearing up for a small landscaping project in the front yard. Stay tuned for pics!

Gah! What street is that?! I think my husband and I drove by that home recently and SWOONED at the thought of living somewhere so beautiful. :)

This home is located at 568 Easton in the southern part of Lake Highlands. It's swoon-worthy for sure! It was recently featured in Atomic Ranch magazine.
