Family Home Renovated With Chic Midcentury Modern Style

October 03, 2016

With a pale blue and brick exterior, this single-family home seemed outdated and underwelming. To breathe new life into the tired look, designer Louis Balodemas gave the exterior a slate gray finish and renovated the interior to be more open, with midcentury modern furniture and chic accents.

Before: Lackluster Exterior

Before the renovation, this home's exterior was a little lackluster, with traditional architecture and plain landscaping. While the robin's egg blue offered a nice contrast to the red brick, the colors were too subdued and blended easily with the yard.

Dim Foyer With Little Space

With poor lighting and heavy accents, the foyer felt far from inviting. Though potted plants added natural greenery to the space, they also looked largely out of place.

Cramped and Confining Kitchen

While cabinets and drawers provided plenty of storage solutions, they also unnaturally divided the kitchen. In turn, the space looked blocked off from the rest of the house and felt quite tight and cramped, which was not ideal for cooking or entertaining guests.

After: Midcentury Home Boasts Red Door

Now, this two-story midcentury modern home boasts a beautiful exterior, complete with slate gray siding and a vibrant red door. White trim pops around the enlarged windows, while a new walkway was installed to create an entry with curb appeal.
