An Mid-Century Modern aka MCM transformation like this is unlikely to go unnoticed. I don’t know about you, but my spirit pulls for the underdog. It has always been my way. To see a story of the unloved, the miss-understood, the thrown to the trash heap (you get the idea) make a massive turn around and leap to glory stirs my soul. God always intended our lives to be renewed, daily in fact.
We can see this in so many ways. How did you learn something new today? Did you see something from another perspective? Perhaps realized how you may have not help up your end of a deal and let someone down? We have a constant state of change and renewal. It is, in general called life. Nothing to be afraid of but rather embraced.
In this story today this odd duckling of a home (to begin with), that was discarded and forgotten. It was purchased by a MCM genius Real-Estate investor and she turned it around. The love, care, and insight to you can see here of her vision is next to amazing. You are instantly transported back to a simpler time. One with opportunities and a trip to the moon within grasp at any moment.
MCM Transformation: Getting A-Round to this Mid-Century Modern Exterior
While the show outside is pretty amazing and gives you plenty of MCM candy to look at, once you walk in – it is next to amazing. I would think you could AirBNB this place all day long for a premium. My only worry is for the real authentic pieces could get damaged.
A Real Mid-Century Modern Kitchen
This place just rocks… no bones about it. Clear direction and purpose with design to please. While some may say it is over the top, well YES it should be. A clear understanding of all of the designs that are not only period correct but period thought. You may or may not have seen the design in many homes during this time however the period correct stove that looks new, the washing machine and dryer all of these just add to the appeal.
Many of the wall decorations seem to hit the spot as well. The cats, the starbursts and lighting. This is a true MCMers dream find. Many of these items look to be authentic but restored or taken very good care of.
MCM Bedroom and Bathroom
A full pink bedroom with all of the right trim. This spacious room looks pink-ture perfect as the room wraps around the house. The Bathroom with brass / gold trim with the multicolored Turquoise tile and band around the top of the bathroom is exceptional and a one off I have never seen.
