New Look for a Mid Century Modern Home



This 1950’s split level on the west side of Madison has simple forms, large glass openings and natural materials that showcase some of the most recognizable elements of Mid Century Modern residential design. It also had a kitchen that was completely cut off from the rest of the living space, an outdated lower level family room, and very poor lighting.

Using a simple palette of white European cabinetry, quartz countertops, wood floors (set in a herringbone pattern inspired by a Parisian apartment) and Ann Sacks glass tiles, the bright new kitchen opens to the rest of the home. An eight foot Crestwood slider provides ample access to the screen porch. The lower level retreat is outfitted with a home theater, music room and new bath with soaking tub and cherry wood paneling.  A corner of frosted glass brings ambient light into an otherwise dark space.
