More home stuff, but this time it's other people's homes. This Friday and Saturday (April 24th and 25th) is the CSL Home Tour - a tour of five homes in Piedmont and Oakland. Please run, don't walk to get a ticket. This tour raises around $120,000 year to help at-risk children in the East Bay. It's a wonderful opportunity to have a good old nosy around people's houses - and do some good. I think the US is the only country to do these tours, isn't it? A few tantalising snaps of what you will see. All photos by Treve Johnson.
You will get to see five homes with very varied styles, including Tudor (shown above), Mid Century (1970's) Modern, 1910 brown shingle Craftsman, Spanish Mediterranean and Spanish Revival.
You can buy tickets online or from a variety of places around the East Bay including Terrace Gifts and Coffee on Broadway Terrace.
Which room (or space) in peoples' homes do you love seeing most? For me I think it's still the kitchen. I am having a moment with the old bar cart these days though. They always look so refreshing don't you think?
