A Local Mid Century Modern














Sometimes I think I have design ADD. I have a deep love for a cottage style home and featured them many times before, but every once in awhile I think I could do something completely different. I honestly think I could even do a mid century modern. This one is local and going for $450,000. What I love are the clean lines, the incredible space to entertain outdoors, the wall of glass, and of course the dressing room. Although I would like to decorate it like this, now that would make it gorgeous.

Do you know your style 100% or can you at times do something completely different?

Wow - I love this house!

Cottages, Victorian/Georgian Houses, and modern...I struggle to make my mind up. How amazing is that dressing room. Love it, love it, love it!

I LOVE the house. I would make it brighter though and decorate it in 'my scandi-style' ...

shopgirl said...

wow! i love the space Paula and it's so organic looking!

p.s. i agree with you, I could look at design, furniture and accessories everyday for hours on end.

B'ham has some killer style! I think I know that this style is last on my list (with Spanish)...but I am sure that will change.

I, too, have a split decor personality - I live in a 1920's farmhouse but hanker for mid-century modern. There's one in town on the market by Philip Johnson decorated in Palm Springs chic!

I think we all do! This is beautiful.

Design Esquire said...

I have design ADD too! I love the warmth of this house.

Ms. Bright said...

Wow. It's so warm with all of the woodtones.

Thanks for showing!!!

This place is gorgeous but I absolutely love the angles of the photos

Heather said...

Yes, that would be a fun house!! Really, also, would love to decorate it like you said. it's fun to think about totally changing your style sometimes!

It always changes, I think the next house I will do with a cottage style exterior, but I am also toying around a more contemporary exterior. It is really going to depend on the next lot...that we are already searching for.
Love the details, even all of the wood, the fact that it is not to dark keeps it light and airy.

Sara Mueller said...

I love so many styles and I am trying to narrow down the style that makes me the most happy.

Sarah said...

i feel that same way. So drawn to cottage then a wonderful modern changes me! Thanks!

Jennifer said...

I think I pretty much know my style ... I try to waiver now and then but always come crawling back to the same things! I can certainly see the appeal of this though -- definitely love all of the windows.

tammy said...

wow great find. i agree about changing the style a bit as linked. there is quite a lot of wood as is, no?

Tara said...

So cool! the house needs some more white though. This house is my hubby's dream so I could sway to this design, just like my style sways every day just about.

sarah, flourish design + style said...

I think I do.. then something sways me :)
This place would be fabulous decorated to suit it! xx

coolkids said...

my style probably varies...but love those windows!!!!

pam@pixelimpress said...

paula, i love a lot of different styles. i fall in love with so many different houses. but i think the common denominator is the flow. does it have good flow? hubby and i just spend 6 months redoing our first floor flow. and i'm now in love with a house that when we first saw it, we said 'oh god, no'.

Lissa @ After Adornment said...

I loooove this home!!!! I agree with you though and would lighten it up a but...too much wood tone for me.
My style varies but I have always loved mid-century modern with a few touches of other styles to keep things interesting!

Brooke @ Blueprint Bliss said...

I have a bad case of design ADD. Bad.

Megan Champion said...

love this! It feels like a vacation... maybe because its so different from my own home.

So open feeling. Pretty find.

Lauren said...

This is so different from my style but I love it just the same. Looks like a great spot for entertaining!

Estelle said...

I would describe my style as bi-polar at best. I seriously love this house but I also really want a tiny cabin/cottage in the woods.

Joslyn said...

you know i think that's totally normal. I'm acutally pretty confident in my style, and I LOVE this house, yet I could totally (happily) live in a cottage.

wait...maybe i don't know my style ;-)

I am so ADD I can't even make a paint decision. I seem to change my mind and look every day!!!

Sunshine+Design said...

I love this house! Is there any chance you could post a link to where you originally found it? I want to read up on it. :)

Melissa said...

Hmmm... is it wrong that I want to paint all that wood white? Probably. I love the light, though-- amazing.

Katharine Fuchs said...

I feel the same way! I would never in a million years think I would live in a house like this but I have already planned 3 parties by the pool in my head. And the possibilities are endless with the decor!!!

nkp said...

I am a smorgasbord when it comes to interior design and architecture. Love it all. And seriously Paula, you are killing me with all of these incredible local offerings, KILLING ME, y'hear???

Bridget said...

YES. i love it.

and i am so with you. i want historical character but then i'll see a super modern even concrete home and completely change my mind.

i need to move to where you are. that house in my neck of the woods would be soooo much more than $450k. stupid massachusetts!!!!!!!

paula said...

This is a local real estate listing so i don't give out any details. Better for the owners that way. If you are interested in it though I can get you in touch with the listing agent :) Thanks for understanding!

milk tea + polkadots said...

Wow, what a beautiful home! I love all the windows and natural light. There's even a window in the closet!

Sarah @ Maison Boheme said...

What an amazing place.

Found you via Seleta...

These mid-century houses are a spiritual experience for me. This one is such a beautiful specimen. :)

And, yes, totally multi-personalities when it comes to house styles.

Happy to find you!
