Mid Century in Malibu designed by Craig Ellwood in 1956, in association with Jerrold E. Lomax. If you love mid century then you have probably seen this amazing home or at least an image or two. Richard Powers is the talent behind these amazing photographs and he is no stranger here at Plastolux. Not only is the home stunning but the collection of mid century furnishings are impeccable. I love the different textures found throughout the house, brick, cork and wood horizontal slatted ceilings make this home simple but complex.
This modern apartment by Leandro Garcia is nicely balanced. I feel that the “balance” comes into play when you are dealing with a smaller apartment. There are certainly challenges that aries form a smaller space. Leandro has done a fantastic job at maximizing the space and utilizing some very nice pieces. The color palette has been kept rather neutral except for a few pieces, I think that helps keep the space more open. That dinning set is the show stopper form me. As an architectural element, I love the walnut cube.
The Thurlow House by Harry Seidler is a beautiful mid century architectural work. Modern House has this project featured on their site and well worth a visit to read all about it. “This 1952 house by architect Harry Seidler, AC OBE is part of the important collection of early houses by one of Australia’s great architects. Research indicates Thurlow House as being number sixteen of eighteen houses completed by Harry Seidler within the first five years of his coming to Australia.” The obvious stand out is the stair case. The stair case links and directs an other wise wide open living space.The home loos to be very well cared for. The view from the pictures is a stunning bonus to this property.
Brentwood modern is just one of my favorite projects by Jamie Bush + Company. Jamie has a mind numbing portfolio full of stunning works that lean and play toward mid century. Around every corner of this project there is a beautiful vignette with just the right balance of color, shape and texture. That Evelyn Ackerman tapestry in the first picture is special piece of art. I also and digging on the full shag carpet treatment in the master bedroom.
Another amazing house for sale, this mid century in Illinois hosts an amazing collection. From the street you would never know what was waiting on the inside. Obviously the owners are collectors and have great taste. They also know how to showcase their passion. The house was built in 1958 and there is no mention of architect but for the price, I bet it gets snatched up rather quickly. The kitchen has some great cabinets.
If you are looking for a Mid century in Minnesota this may be perfect. I dream of finding such a well kept and cared for mid century gem like this one. Designed in 1958 by Ralph Rapson. The listing refers to the style of the home as international but I certainly see all of the influences of mid century. The floors appear to be Terrazzo and are stunning. I am certainly a sucker for white brick, walls of glass and a flat roof. The current owner has some great taste, and matches the home.
