We have been commissioned to design a Mid Century Modern renovation on this home and here are our initial notes and thoughts on the project!
To give a modern feel and enhance the natural light of the property I am proposing a more dramatic entry and roof line that will greatly impact the aesthetics of the home and make it what’s known as a Mid Century Modern, architecturally speaking.
Until plans are drawn it can be rather difficult to imagine how the home will look once all the dirty work has been done so I have gathered some photos to help you visualize the possibilities.
Let’s talk more about the front of the home and curb appeal via the photos below
One of the things we hear commonly regarding homes is wanting to have light come into the house, so I propose altering the front & rear to allow more natural light. In photo #1 – the front door is now visible from the street which can be accent color as you see in the photo. Photo #2 is actually the rear of a home in California but I could see it as a version of your entry allowing more light into the home and offering quite a stunning visual from the curb! Lastly photo #3 is more of the same.
These are used for design inspiration and we take the ideas and concepts you like most along with the particular nuances of your home and we create our own design.
Now let’s move to the kitchen…
With that wall removed and/or opening the kitchen to the entry & living as well as opening it up more to the den off the kitchen I believe the pictures below conveys a few of the possibilities…
In photo #1 I like how the kitchen is open to the living areas and has the dark floors which is a design theme we discussed when we met. I also like the vaulted ceilings which we may copy but we will pop up the ceiling in the kitchen to create the illusion of more space. Photo’s 2 & 3 are different perspectives on the same kitchen and I’m not fond of the finishes per se’ but the layout and flow is line with what we discussed.
