Know Your Home: Mid-Century Modern Style

  1. Jen says:

    Great article. I have a big modern rancher in mostly original condition (currently redoing the kitchen). I live in a cool climate… I need some help with the exterior.

  2. Laura says:

    Fab website, thank you. Any examples to renovate Ranch style mid century modern homes?

  3. Caroline says:

    I Love this article! I own a home built in 1969 however it is very Eichler inspired. I also live in Orlando (Winter Park) And have a single-story mid century ranch that is currently all beige and I am looking to paint it gray with white trim. It has some wonderful elements like a completely closed in courtyard and large glass windows as well as slate floors and a fireplace.

    I’d love to get your input!

    I would love to send you a photo!

  8. Emily says:

    Hello – I love this article and your mid-century ranch article as well. I recently bought a home built in 1959 but I am struggling to determine if it’s mid-century mod or ranch. Could you help me?

  9. Craig says:

    Just wanted to thank you for a wealth of information you have provided.

    I really needed to read this! It brought me some sanity and clarification. I have a mid century modern home, built in the 60’s. “Slopped” referring back to your drawings. It was totally the IT house for that time.. I have had such a hard time decorating and picking out colors for the exterior of the house. Keep the pointers coming!

    I am excited to find this site to steamline the visions I keep having in my head. I purchased a ranch in Florida (Marco Island) where everyone is demolishing everything or trying to give it that coastal flare. We are seeking to make this a Beatles themed home with each room a different inspiration. My interior is on point, however I am perplexed by the exterior and feel like I bought the ugly duckling home. I was so excited to find your site and am eagerly awaiting when you reopen for phone consults in June, We have the issue of getting in line for impact windows so I had to wing the decision myself, but am eager to have your help me with the rest of the outside so I can get this home to press! It is by far my most challenging project ever and I cant wait to have you make this home look as awesome on the outside as I have on the outside
