Midcentury ranch home goes modern
See how a 1953 ranch-style home went comfortably modern
Colorful displayFull story: Cool house, warm look
Homeowners Bobby Costa and Daniel Germani are fans of the midcentury-modern look, but their house is neither minimalist nor sterile. In fact, it's downright cozy, both indoors and out. "We didn't want a museum or a showcase," Germani says. "We wanted a place where you could sit down comfortably and have a cup of coffee."
After three months of renovation, the two moved in, bringing furnishings and art from their previous residence. But they found themselves weeding out items and adding pieces that better reflected the home's '50s character.
Here, brightly colored ceramics are showcased against the sandblasted wall.
