my friend peggy is awesome. crazy attractive and crazy quirky are two of my favorite qualities in a person. lucky for her, she found a house to match...so we had a chat about it.
CHL: what does your new house say about you and your family?
peggy: totally captures our personality. it's got a personality that's not indicative of salt lake, which is why i love it.
CHL: what is it indicative of?
peggy: mid-century modern. it feels like the brady bunch. it's quirky; cool quirky. it's got enough odd qualities to make me love it even more.
CHL: so you see your personality reflected in the house?
peggy: absolutely. if i had walked into one more bungalow, i would have slit my wrists. i knew that i would know the house the second i walked into it, and i did.
CHL: wow. what about bungalows is so bad?
peggy: it reminds me of when we first moved to utah and everything was the exact same.
CHL: how are you different?
peggy: i mean...(laughs)...i'm a scorpio; i'm from the east coast. my personality is kind of an eclectic mix...not quite put together. that's what this house is like. it's not perfect, but it's perfect for us. i wanted to feel connected to cody and lyric if we were going to be living in a space so open. it's a little off-beat, and so are we. i feel like if my house could talk, it would have my laugh. it's hard to describe, but everyone really likes it.
CHL: you met ron mullin? the architect, right?
peggy: you would have thought i was meeting brad pitt. ugh, no...i hate celebrities. but i like rihanna and jay-z, so it was like meeting them. i have no idea about anything ron's designed other than this subdivision. i'd never seen this design back east, and i sort of attached his name to this cool, new floor plan, so it was a bit like meeting a rock star for me. he was such a cute little man. i think he was embarrassed that i was so excited to meet him. i just think his homes are amazing.
peggy (side note): go buy stuff from ron at green ant. he's so nice; he even tried to get blueprints for the house. please plug green ant! i love that place.
