Make Your Modern | Home Story 05

Nature Wrapped Mid-Century | Sue and Sean were looking for a non-traditional home tucked into nature when they found this Mid-Century Modern home (circa 1973). The dramatic central fireplace and views of woods and mountains tugged at their heart. Architect Les McCormick helped them imagine and realize the modernized home it is today.

Everything was taken down to the studs. After replacing all the systems, they layered in mid-century and modern detailing throughout. The master suite was opened up with natural light coming in through a composition of square windows. A double-sided fireplace visible from both bedroom and bath was added as uniquely luxurious touch. Sean, a chef by trade, created a spacious kitchen with a giant island for parties, and a cozy, built-in banquet for more intimate gatherings. Expansive windows, large doors, and a wrap-around deck helped to increase the livable area of the home and connect with the wooded surroundings.

This distinctive renovation brings together nature and modernism with a dusting of sparkle.

Make Your Modern | Home Story 04

California Sunset | Andrea and Lucy fell immediately in love with this property given the hidden location and context. While the home’s foundation sits on an urban hillside walkable to restaurants and downtown, the elevation allows it to live in up in the natural environment reminiscent of their life in Northern California. Here they get to enjoy both the urban and natural world. Ultimately, the San Francisco couple took what was a fifties ranch home and elevated it on many levels — vertically, functionally and aesthetically.

The main level of the ranch home was maximized by combining functions and offering spaces that could be either offices or entertaining spaces using that Danish style simplicity, lightness and unity. All rooms were opened up inside and outside creating expansiveness and a needed relationship with nature. The upper level addition was key in the requirements to provide both a private guest space and more importantly a writer’s retreat in the clouds for Lucy.

The end result for Andrea and Lucy is an approachable and joyful modern home that marrys the urban and natural context while bringing their own relaxed northern California vibe to our mountains.

Down the “Mid-Century” Rabbit Hole

Artist Roger Capron | You know how it goes — you are scrolling the internet and one image pops up and suddenly you are off into a new visual world. That is exactly how it worked when I saw the above image and got lost in the rhythm, colors and geometry of this tile piece. Roger Capron had been a prolific French artist born in Vincennes, France on September 4, 1922. Interested in drawing, he studied Applied Arts in Paris from 1939 to 1943 and worked as an art teacher in 1945. He died on November 8, 2006 leaving behind a considerable body of work that is recognized worldwide. I know you’ll want to see more so go HERE. Cheers!
