December 6, 20101950’s Neighborhood In Bethesda, MD
Happy Monday, All! I have a fun little post for you today. When visiting our brothers and sisters this October, we got to see some really cute mid-century on the East Coast. This post comes from Tom’s sister’s neighborhood in Bethesda.
While not MCM, these houses were built in the “traditional” or “colonial” style of the mid-century. Fun, period accents are still in tact all over the place, including the two different house numbers on this split-level. Click on the pictures to get a close-up of the details.
Even though this house wasn’t in the greatest shape, I adored the shutters, front door, and iron accents on this house. I don’t think I have ever seen railings quite like these!
I sort of like the exterior paint here that accents the mid-century bits instead of hiding them.
This front entrance is such a shame. Just a small amount of restoration would really make this place. You can even see the faded, listing flamingo in the yard. Get that guy some paint and a new stick!
Pretty metal awning.
It is hard to see in this photo, but there is some great metalwork inside the carport.
This one is adorable! Thank goodness for the people in this house!
Some more great metal accents. Lovely!
Thanks to Maggie, who suffered through Tom and I walking around and lecturing her about preserving Mid-Century accents while we took pictures. We had a great time! 🙂
