An Eclectic Take on Mid-Century Modern
After completing their second remodel in 2017, our clients decided to engage in a total refresh of their 1958 post and beam residence. The clients are eclectic art collectors who view their home as an extension of found things.
The interior modernization honors Gilbert & Kearney’s original mid-century aesthetic and provides the perfect backdrop for the young family’s most treasured artifacts. From the iconic architecture to the open-plan layout, the design concept merges styles and blends shared experiences.
While remodeling the mid-century home, our client desired to add an element of mystique in the style of a secret door hidden behind a bookshelf. The hidden room functions as a workshop/storage space, and transforms the standard stairwell into a topic of conversation or an area of respite.
Working closely with the client, the interior design team first cataloged the home’s existing furniture, accessories, and art collection. Next, additional items were selected through a series of sourcing and design meetings with the client. These collaborative sessions helped refine the selections to blend with the couple’s existing collection.
From its second-story perch, the home office exudes a modern treehouse vibe. The workspace faces a private patio and is surrounded on two sides by unique displays of time-honored treasures and vintage photos. Nearby, an heirloom pool table and wet bar ensure the space is ideal for both business and pleasure.
An outdoor kitchen hugs the outer edges of the green space, expanding the family’s hosting abilities. A home theater, adorned with prized memorabilia and a luxurious sectional, allows the energetic family to stay entertained rain or shine.
