Hillside Hideaway

Influenced by the good-bones of the home, this mid-century remodel opened the living spaces to create a unified main level where new elements are in harmony with the old.

Suffering from an ill-conceived renovation in the 1980’s, the living spaces of this mid-century modern home were cramped, dark, and segregated. By re-arranging spaces, removing two walls, and adding a few new windows, the living spaces are bright, open, and reflect mid-century modern’s best design principles.

White oak floors and painted ceiling beams are preserved from the original design, and the existing, re-clad central fireplace serves as an anchor and focal point from each of the living space functions. New black walnut cabinets with white countertops, white wall tile, and a new pickled wood ceiling brighten the spaces in a cohesive design statement. A new mudroom entry tucked off the living spaces provides a much-needed support space which will support an active family and organize clutter away from living spaces.
