John and Craig's family includes two boys (ages 6 and 11), a dog and a cat.
They have Floor Plan H and Elevation C. Craig specializes in modern residential real estate. If you're in the market for a Mid Century Modern home in Los Angeles you should visit ValleyModern.com. Should you have the pleasure of meeting Craig, you'll feel like you're with a character out of Mad Men. It's quite appropriate to buy a MCM home from him.
John is a teacher at our neighborhood school. He walks to work everyday. I look forward to my daughter being in one of his classes in the distant future. We have a bit of Mayberry in our neighborhood. We're all very involved in our school, our community and in each other. It's what makes this neighborhood so safe.
To me, the distinguishing details of John and Craig's home are the clean lines and clean space. Their house always seems to be immaculate despite having two boys. Their decoration is also clean, white and minimal. It's evolved over the couple years we've known them. They added the dark accent wall in the living room in the last year. I think it adds great contrast to the space. The master bedroom has much more color and the house overall his more colorful details here and there.
Here are some shots of their home.
This is one of my favorite spots in their house. The open feel of the house, the plant in the corner, the globe lights, the color of their door and the Nelson wall hook just makes me love this perspective point.
A challenge for me when photographing our homes is how different a room will feel/look throughout the day. The change of daylight really impacts our homes on the inside. Some rooms are most beautiful at specific times of the day while others just change in mood.
John takes care of the garden and plants. He has an incredible vegetable garden. It's quite amazing.
