The mid-century modern period of architecture and design, which ran roughly from the 1930s to the 1960s, gave us such iconic architects as Eero Saarinen and Mies van der Rohe. However, our understanding of these buildings is informed through the photographers who chronicled their designs — adding perspective, context and sometimes a little drama. Although we can still visit many of these buildings today, the following photographers allowed us to see the work of acclaimed architects as they saw it themselves. See the rest of this article by Daisy Alioto here. Enjoy!
Yeah! We are so happy for our Denver buyers, David and Blair, who just closed on this beautiful Deck house. The Deck House is a stunning & historic style of architecture with signature decking ceilings & exposed post & beam construction allowing for great walls of glass that naturally welcome the outdoors in. Thanks to our buddy Carol for working with us on this one — always a pleasure! Cheers!

Take a deeper look at the transformation of 49 Valle Vista in North Asheville — a 1978 split-entry ranch on a private wooded lot. Our owner, puts her heart in everything. As she says,“I love transformation and wanted to find a home that I could bring life back to it, with quality work, green/environmentally friendly products wherever possible and a desire to create an oasis. I viewed this project as a work of art, carefully choosing each component with purpose, flair and beauty. This is basically a new house. Even if this home isn’t the right one for you, I hope you will join with the love and energy put into this space!”
The kitchen and living area, formally divided, has now be united and topped with a vaulted ceiling for a light and open space. Careful in creating a warm contemporary space the finishes provide brightness, contrast and warmth.
Along with everything else the three bathrooms were all gutted and updated to reflect the rest of the interior.
Overall, the home has new HVAC, roof, gutters, most plumbing, electrical, drywall and insulation, front and back deck, garage doors and radon system. As always, give us a call if you want more information on this home. In the meantime go here for the tour. Cheers!

Over the course of his career, famed midcentury developer Joseph Eichler built roughly 11,000 homes. By marrying the postwar trend for tract houses with architect-designed plans, Eichler offered middle-class homebuyers the opportunity to own a well-made, still relatively low-cost home that felt, in a word, designed.

We were so pleased to steward this great mid-century home forward to new owners. Our sellers did an amazing job of enhancing this home appropriately which is why there was so much interest and sold in a few days – along with our targeted marketing. Cheers to you and thank you for allowing us to help!
Here is what they said about us: “We were owners of a special mid-century home and selected Kelly and Troy to sell it for us. Because of their market specialization in this area, we were not disappointed with the results. Their personalities, combined with their appreciation and understanding of the unique qualities and lifestyle benefits of our property helped to get us over our asking price. We would recommend them highly to sell your home if you have a midcentury or modern property.”

Here is a great little video on the work of photography of Julius Shulman to enjoy for your weekend.
“Much of the magic that the desert utopia of Palm Springs holds has to do with its prominent mid-century aesthetic. Author Michael Stern outlines how pioneering architect William Krisel relied on the careful eye of Los Angeles photographer Julius Shulman to create the iconic photographs we know today, while also contributing to restoring Krisel’s designs for the duration. Featuring an archived interview with Julius Shulman.”
