I am losing my shit over this impeccably restored period home in Denver, Colorado. Not only is the home a mid-century modern dream, but it’s been decorated — inside AND out — in color-blocked, Mondrian-style, using a Skittles palette of bright reds, yellows, greens, and oranges.
If you’d like to be schooled on color-block decor, come drool all the fuck over this 1952 ranch home.
This house was on the market for $354,000. If I were to buy it I would do whatever the hell I had to do to purchase this baby fully-furnished. Because OMFG this is perfection.

I’m dying over here! That is so, so, so what I want. Rest assured this post will be referred back to repeatedly.
Such a sweet midcentury house… with such unflattering photos! Note to the world: if you’re selling your home, don’t use a cell phone to take the listing photos. Seriously though, awesome house.
Yeah. Real estate agents aren’t necessarily great photographers… Maybe hire a pro for big stuff like that.
Also.. Yes, I love mid century homes!

I’ve never been so jealous of anything in my life.
Welcome to my personal hell. 😉 SO so jealous of this amazing home, and I shall never possess it. But I’m glad everyone seems to be enjoying the find as much as I did!
I would like to ask you about the fugue’s colour of black and white flooring?
Thank you for your time.
When I went house shopping, every mid-century home was filthy and falling apart so I thought that houses from this era were a big no-no. Thanks for showing how nice they can be when they are cleaned up and given new life!
GodDAMN that is gorgeous.
I would probably have gone with a different color scheme — blues and greens and aquas — just because living with that much orange would make my teeth itch, but that is totally my issue and the orange is right in line with most color-field painting.
Ooh, an ocean-like color scheme would be AMAZING. But I’m totally a sucker for orange decor. My home is swimming in it. 😉
I love it. It’s colorful without being over the top.
Just gonna geek out over the orange and for a bit SQUEEEEEEE
I’m curious to see what other people think about the black and white tile flooring (seen in the kitchen area). My husband actually LOVES it in general, and I kinda do too, but as we were house-shopping our real estate agent kept reassuring us how easy it would be to redo the floors in any house that had it, and even said something like, “Try to get over the hideous tiling, the rest of the room looks so great, doesn’t it?” Do other people think it’s gross, or are there other weirdos out there like me who enjoy the black and white tiling scheme?
I LOVE them! I installed them in my last kitchen. They do a good job of hiding dirt and I think they look awesome at the same time. I think it’s just a taste thing.
Checkerboard floors are my FAVORITE. But our real estate agent said the same thing! Hmm.
I’m still in love with this house so hard <3 I might have changed the hues to be red, blue, and green (additive primary colors, yo!), a bit more pure and saturated, but daayum I still love MCM houses SO MUCH.
