Mustard-hued doors are a bold touch in the entry of this mid-century modern California home. White walls continue from the foyer into the dining room, where Eames-style chairs and modern lighting mix with vintage pieces to give the space an eclectic flair. Marbled glass in the entry is period-appropriate and offers privacy.
This open-concept dining room and kitchen embrace Mid-Century style and fully update it for contemporary life. Thin, wiry legs make the table and chairs feel as if they're floating in the room, especially with glass walls bringing in loads of light on both sides. The modern kitchen is sleek and streamlined.
The original layout of this kitchen functioned in the home perfectly, so it was worth keeping around, but the style was stuck in the 1950's. The ceiling was raised to allow the kitchen appear larger and all the cabinets were given new fronts for a modern look with the shaker panel style. Painting the lower cabinets and peninsula dark blue really grounded the small space.
Just off the kitchen, designers added a small, elegant bar area from which the homeowners can easily entertain. With extra counter space and a small prep sink, this area gives the homeowners the perfect space to mix drinks or prepare hours d'oeuvres out of the sight of their guests.
This minimalist kitchen features white and medium grain wood cabinets paired with lighter hardwood floors. A stainless steel microwave and wine cooler are built into the cabinets, while interior windows line one wall, allowing a peek into the adjacent living room.
