With a realtor for a husband and a serious case of interior design obsession,  I am well versed in the ways of real estate stalking, or as I prefer to call it, real estalking. My theory is that this is due in part to a childhood spent attending open houses on Sunday afternoons with my older sister and her husband while they were newlyweds and househunting for their first place in Oklahoma City.

A few weeks ago I came out to shoot some of the houses in Carlton Landing, both for the real estate office and for the hospitality group. I shot a total of five houses in two days and it was so fun to me. They’re all so cute and happy, and I figured you guys would appreciate a good real estalking post too.


First up is this darling vacation rental located on Upper Boardwalk across from the bocce ball courts. It’s light and bright, and has a fun third story loft with three cute little beds tucked under the eaves.  The builder is a friend of ours and I love what they create.

I need to find out what the paint color is on this bathroom vanity. It’s the most perfect pale blue/green/gray.

Barn door into the master bath. Still very much a big trend.


Next up is one of my favorite houses in CL, now owned by some friends of ours. It was one of the first houses built in Carlton Landing and is located on the most charming courtyard. The trees have grown up around it, and it’s so dreamy on the upper porch.  You might not have even noticed it when you stroll by on Park Street as it’s set off the street in the loveliest little courtyard. It’s gotten a fresh coat of bright white paint too.


Finally, this one was for the real estate office and it just sold, but wowza. I couldn’t get enough of this enormous great room with so many excellent details. Shale grey built-ins in a corner of the kitchen against loads of white elongated subway tile and dark wood beams.

Another pale aqua/grey paint color to track down. I’m sensing a pretty great trend here.

Ok, that does it for this week’s installment of real estalking… Love? Hate? Want more of this? Let me know in the comments.
