This house represents one of my favorite general styles of interior design and architecture: a firm mid-century modern base mixed seamlessly with contemporary elements.
So, this house was originally featured on DigsDigs nearly 3 years ago. This obviously means that many of you have have seen it before, but I thought it was totally worth re-sharing for those of you who have not run across this house before. Those of you who have seen it before probably don’t mind revisiting it either; I know I don’t.
There isn’t much not to like in this open, airy, and bright remodel. Keeping the soul of the design firmly rooted in mid-century modern ideals, the colors and finishes are quite contemporary which is always such a perfect mix to me. Included in the final design were several inherited pieces of period furniture that were reupholstered and refurbished for appropriate use in the space. I know some purists prefer to see mid-century modern homes look like time-capsules with everything straight out of the original time period; however, while I can appreciate those spaces as well, I prefer to use that style as my base and re-imagine it in today’s world – always moving forward. I think that really keeps the spirit of the mid-century modernists’ original intent.
Hope you enjoy this house as much as I have – both on my first and second viewing.
