I'm especially in love with the couch and the art above it. Does anybody have some tips on DIYing either one? Reply Putting my house on the market and moving to Glendale, California. Reply The 50s looked so much better in the US than the UK! Reply Haha, I love these real estate posts, but dang, there is really not a single thing about this house that I like. Apparently mid-century modern is NOT my thing…. But keep posting! 🙂 Reply Not my thing either. I can certainly appreciate the look, and I'm glad it is preserved. I can appreciate it as museum piece. I wouldn't want to live there. My preferred style is from a much earlier period. Victorian era details appeal more to me, though a Victorian house generally does need a certain amount of updating to be usable in the modern era. Please keep posting real estate stuff, and if you could vary the style a bit that would be really cool. Mid-century modern is great, but some variety would be great too. If I were at a stage in my life where I was looking to buy a house I'd contribute photos of places I was looking at, but I'm not there yet. I could make a guest post of the outsides of the really cool houses here in Boston, but a post of just the outsides of places might be kinda boring. Of course there are real estate sites that show the insides, but finding the places that know how to take decent pictures seems to be problematic to say the least. And, I'm rambling. Reply I love how this home is like "ooh, nice new building material. LET'S USE IT FRICKIN' EVERY-DAMN-WHERE. Orange tile? EVERYWHERE. Wood trim? New, inventive ways to put it EVERYWHERE. Glazed terra cotta flooring? ALLLLLLLL THE WHERES." Reply Yes! It's especially impressive in the bathroom. Reply It's baffling to me that the bathroom has carpet in front of the sinks. Why is that one of the only places they didn't use the tiles?? Reply Especially while using tiles behind where you would hang towels so dampness doesn't get on the walls? (which, by the way, is freaking genius and I'm implementing as soon as a I buy a house). Reply I think I'm in love. Reply Love some of this. I'm not the biggest fan of all the wood everywhere, mostly because it's so dark. I mean, it's hugely awesome to see in pictures, but I don't think I could actually handle living somewhere with wood paneling in the bathroom. Love the staircase and stonework though. Orange tile is okay with me too. 🙂 Reply I love it I love it I love it I lovvveee iiiiitttttt….. Reply My house was also built in 1955, but it's nowhere near this cool. Le sigh. Reply I love this so, so much. I wouldn't change it. I would just add accents and a lovely garden. Reply It's amazing how different mid-century style furniture looks in a mid-century style home, rather than just plopped in the middle of a modern apartment like I usually see it. It looks like it fits! Reply i got a boner Reply Me too. A big, mid-century modern boner. Reply I didn't thought that such a lovely houses have been left somewhere. According to me, this house is worth every penny that the homeowner can ask for. For me the only problem is maintaining the floor, cause it's from tiles and will need regular cleaning. But! Every beautiful thing in this life has a price, this home has its as well! Reply Join the conversation Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.
