Winners will receive a “Best Of Houzz 2014” badge on their profiles, showing the Houzz community their commitment to excellence. These badges help homeowners identify popular and top-rated home professionals in every metro area on Houzz.

Mid Century Modern Makeover

Living Room

Living Room

I recently finished a fabulously fun renovation project on an original Bertram King mid century modern home in North Asheville. The homeowners love the mid century period and wanted to restore the original look of the home and bring authenticity with the furniture selections. They even asked me to decorate for Christmas with an 8 foot tinsel tree, true to the 50’s.

Saarinen Tulip Table and chairs make for a great breakfast spot. Upholstered chairs from Mobilia reflect the natural elements surrounding this idyllic space.

The open concept with glass walls allows nature and lake views to play a major role in daily life.

Will be posting images of the fully renovated kitchen as soon as it is totally finished.

Keep posted.
