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!

    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!
