When we chose a 1950s ranch house in Denver to remodel for our 2015 Sunset Idea House, the response was passionate and mixed. Some people said we should leave a good thing alone. Others pointed out that the house, which wasn’t exactly iconic, could use the update. We understand both perspectives. That’s why we tapped Jonas DiCaprio of design/build firm Design Platform to devise a remodel that left intact the best of the existing details (like the fireplace) while adding more space and some of the midcentury features (like custom built-ins) the original home lacked. Then interior designer Megan Hudacky of CKY Design layered on contemporary details to bring that vintage style into today. No matter your home’s era, you’ll be inspired by the result.
