Things are gearing up for the summer and getting quite busy around here since we got back from vacation. When things get busy, the blog falls to the wayside. But I just wanted to drop a line and include you in what’s going on. On the boards, we have a cool Scandinavian minimalist meets vintage midcentury modern house in Silverlake. Look at the Pinterest board I created to get a sense of where the house is going. Not much remodel work – the scope includes some paint, new lighting, scraping of the popcorn ceiling, and removal of upper cabinets for open shelving in the kitchen. And lots of good vintage midcentury pieces to give the home character, old kilim rugs and beat up leather, a bit retro, a bit eclectic, but edited to feel modern and uncluttered. This project is just so me!
Lighting for the dining room isn’t finalized. Here are the options. Which would you pick?
Also up for debate is the bed and wallpaper accent all for the master bedroom. I think I woudl go with the first bed since it allows for eclectic nightstands. What about you?
The den is masculine and manly for our client. He is bringing the Knoll sofa with him. The rest open.
Don’t forget the kitchen. Here is the style and mood we are going for before we have any actual drawings. Shopping for unique and original midcentury goodies will be the best part. I already did a “research trip” to the Long Beach flea market this past weekend to see what’s out there. When the client takes possession of the house in early June, we can actually pull the trigger on these pieces.
