    I love the way the owners maintained the mid-century style of the house. The wood, the wall colors, the furniture, and even the blue formica bathroom countertop are all awesome. This is how to update an old home. New, beautiful furniture that actually looks good.

    Le Sigh….A MCM home that would be BIG enough for my family of six. I could SO see us living in that home. That kitchen is divine..as are the bathrooms.

    I remember as a young-un’ reading that kitchens and bathrooms sell a house and laughing, cause I didn’t get it. NOW I sure do.

    Thanks for sharing. Shame it is too far away for us, and WAAAAAYYYYYYY more than we could afford.

    Again, Le Sigh….

    OMG, I think this might be with my dream home! I agree with Tom, I love how they updated, but kept the updates appropriate for a mid-century home. All of those built ins in the bathroom … as someone who’s seriously lacking bathroom storage, I think those are what made me swoon most of all!

    Can I pay extra and get all the furniture, too?
