This Spanish Modern house is home to a young family of four. The design is a graceful blend of Art Deco and midcentury styles, with fun pops of color that add life to the rooms. Here, in the living room, white space is just as important as the art pieces, helping to create a sense of peace as well as spotlighting special moments, like the niche above the fireplace.
Midcentury Modern Kitchen is Made Brighter, Larger and More Functional With Wall Removal
Several walls were removed during the renovation of this midcentury modern home to combine the kitchen and what was the sunroom. The result was a large, airy space in place of what was a small, boxy and awkwardly arranged kitchen. A large island houses the sink, creating a more logical work triangle with the refrigerator and sink. White surfaces reflect light, improving the previously dark space.
