Growing tired of mid-century modern... - Page 3

post #31 of 37
I think Modern architecture and design/style is cool to look at in dream home magazines and online pictures but definitely not an inviting, warm environment to welcome you home everyday. I myself prefer spanish architecture and warm, interior design with traditional American ques. I still don't get modern design, definitely cannot imagine a completely white house with a bunch of white or funky colored furniture with minimalist spacing. I have a friend that has a very nice house in the hills of Laguna Beach, it was styled modern on the inside with a bunch of freaky colors, very very uninviting and cold, I could not, for the life of me, get myself comfortable in that house.

I want a house built with a hose bib in the interior so I can just jet spray the whole thing clean.

MCM done right. a unit in Gregory Ain's 1947 Avenel Housing Coop here in the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles. and this one is not as nice as the one that sold last year. for the curious, it's 745K in a little less than 1K sq ft. i think it's overpriced for the neighborhood but the previous one sold for $689K IIRC.

still, what i wouldn't give to live in one of these...

I was in a trend meeting with a major home decor company yesterday. We were looking at research showing victorian and classic british prints tweaked with more modern color and scale. It was mixed with some clean MCM elements but evolving forward into a fresh look.

There are some nice things in the house, but the space itself doesn't do it for me. The previous one is far superior, I think.

I, for one, think it most certainly will.

Late '70s and '80s furniture design is totally dominated by the Italians (or designers working in Italy for Italian firms)
