Midcentury Ranch Home With Hardscaping and Water Feature
This midcentury modern ranch home features attractive hardscaping of gravel and stone slabs, as well as a grouping of cactus plants in the front. A narrow water creates the impression of a creek running in front of the home. The covered entry features a red French door and is lit by a Sputnik chandelier.
Home Exterior With White Siding, Wood Door With Glass Panels and Covered Porch Entry
A concrete sidewalk leads from the driveway to the covered porch entry of this home. Frosted glass stripes create an attractive modern door against the white horizontal siding. The dark roof creates contrast against the bright home.
The entry of Chris' condo is a mash-up of classic menswear and midcentury modern styles. A black, silver and gold pinstripe wallpaper from Graham & Brown covers the walls while a brass helix-style chandelier purchased for $200 from a flea market lights the space.
A sustainable Craftsman exterior with architectural details like tapered front columns showcases a modern take on the Arts and Crafts style. HardieShingle siding covers the body of the house, which is painted in Sherwin-Williams' Renwick Olive hue, while a stone walkway completes the classic Craftsman look for this home.
Arches covered in creeping fig vines lead to the back entry of this elegant home. A neutral stone patio provides timeless flooring without distracting from the beautiful architectural details of the walkway.
