When this young family approached us with an idea of turning their ranch style 70's home into a mid century modern dream, we were thrilled to take on this project. You know Raelena Vasquez of Swank Design is game for any mid century modern makeover.
This project creates a more spacious and functional kitchen, transforms a mud/laundry room, and completely remodels a guest bathroom. Swank Design added tons of personality and color to a previously drab monotone space to help this home suit mid century modern tastes.
To brighten and lighten was the game. This top to bottom kitchen remodel gave the homeowners a clean slate. Swank Design removed the dated linoleum flooring and replaced it with sophisticated large square tile flooring. We created texture and pop with modern geometric backsplash tiles.
An upgrade to appliances, countertops, custom cabinetry, shelving, and lighting gave this kitchen a clean-lined modern/minimalist style.
Note the meticulous bookmatching throughout the kitchen, in which the grain of the wood continues from one cabinet to the next.
With little ones in the house, an island with seating for the family was a must. Family members can pull up on this side of the island and keep the cook company. We removed the fireplace and created more storage options for this family.
The result is a light, bright and colorful home with an easy flow from dining room to kitchen.
We added a cheerful turquoise color and more functionality to the laundry/mud room. Sticking with geometric wall paper added a playful and young dimension to the area.
With direct access to pool area, this couple wanted to add a shower and update their small guest bathroom. With Swank Design it is possible to keep a tiny footprint open while introducing more elements. Check out this beautiful newly expanded guest bathroom.
We had a blast with this project. To see more of this mid century modern transformation visit Swank Design's Flintridge page.
