Mid Century Modern Makeover

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.

 

 

2013 – A Good Time To Renovate

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Good news for the home building industry. Last week (March 2013) the Commerce Department report showed the rate of single-family home construction at its highest level in four and a half years, the results of this study point to a strengthening economy, housing and renovation market. Yeah!

A survey done  by the popular Houzz site showed that 54% of those polled are planning to do a renovation project on their home this year. All that “pent-up” energy is about to be released into newly designed bathrooms, kitchens and more. In fact, 28% are sprucing up their bathrooms, while 23% are planning to tackle their kitchen or an addition.

Here in Asheville, I have definitely seen an increase in activity. The projects on our schedule this year include a mix of kitchen and bath remodels with several additions, as well as some new construction.

We’re happy to see people investing in their homes.
