For this 1951 Mid-Century ranch home we did several upgrades while keeping the layout the same. We took our cues for style from the home; adding interest with paint, textiles, and furnishings. The result is a space that feels masculine and modern but with our client’s character and texture as a backdrop.
Our remodel plans focused on bringing character back to the home, lining up windows symmetrically, and creating a larger more useable layout in the kitchen. The main living areas are large and connected but they didn’t feel like a part of the same space. By adding wood floors to match the original wood in the home and refinishing it all with only a seal the spaces feel as one. Adding light was our client’s top priority so we enlarged several windows, adding doors when possible, and recreating the lighting scheme.
The moody teal wainscoting that runs throughout the home pulls the spaces together while creating interest in otherwise plain spaces. The client’s multiple collections and family heirlooms finish off the space with very little being purchased as new.
