…. why we moved from a super cool mid-century modern ranch home to a nondescript, ugly ducking fixer-upper with no modern features. Sweeping 180 degrees views from our backyard, kitchen, living room & master bedroom, stunning by day and beautiful flickers at night.
The house itself had been neglected for many years. It needed a complete overhaul. Two of my friends thought it was really ugly. But it had the view, a great cul-de-sac location in a fantastic neighborhood and it was in a much better school district than our previous house. It had enough space for our family and even room for a tiny guest room for visitors. I was up for the design challenge to modernize it and to make it our new home. Luckily, my husband’s taste is very similar to mine and he liked all of my design ideas. I’ll be posting some of the transformations here. Hope you enjoy them.
