MCM Entrance at night

Frank Lloyd Wright Inspired 1963 MCM, Salisbury NC

When you start talking about Mid-Century Modern houses the name Frank Lloyd Wright often comes up. He was one of the chief architects that started the trend to simplicity. I like his quote below and you can see in his designs and also in the designs of the architects that followed his work and how they used his philosophy of architecture to drive their work. “Better one for living in”. Nothing too complicated with that. On our house tour this week, we are looking at a house in the middle of North Carolina. All of our house reviews reside under our lifestyle section. This along with other MCM items like furniture and products we find interesting.

“The mission of an architect is to help people understand how to make life more beautiful, the world a better one for living in, and to give reason, rhyme, and meaning to life.”

– Frank Lloyd Wright, 1957

So, as I stated earlier many architects even today use this philosophy as a design language. After all (and one of the reasons I believe why we like our MCM) – simplicity. Being able to see from one end of the house to the other is so unique and amazing to experience. The openness, natural light… I don’t think I have ever mentioned this, but my oldest daughter plays the piano and the whole house fills up with wonderful music when she plays. A real gift and great experience.

This house showed up in my Facebook feed in Facebook Marketplace. It is not too often that you will find a home, much less one that is of a Mid-Century Modern design. I contacted the owner and captured these images from the listing. As of today, the publishing of this post it is for sale
