Leslie’s Mid Century Modern Remodel

Hi friends! It’s almost been a FULL YEAR that we’ve owned our own home. Ikerrumba I miss the action of remaking a house into a home of my own personal taste! I love sizing up a room, using our daily walk to scheme up the perfect new look, and tackling it with my own hands and a careful budget. So in the meantime, I’m going to share some friend’s remodels that make my heart pitter patter. Today is Leslie’s Mid Century Modern Remodel.

Let’s look at the befores….

The rambler was centered around a giant two sided fire place. There was a breakfast nook by the back door and a separate formal dining room leading into the living room.

Leslie decided to open up the floor plan by getting rid of the fire place and the entire central wall the separated the spaces. This allowed her to reconfigure the kitchen entirely and make space for the most gorgeous island ever!

The cruised on this remodel and I went down to take these pictures to share with you!

This first batch of photos will lead you from the front door…

She adds the “modern” into this mid century modern remodel with the bold contrast of BLACK (um my fav.. see here and here and here).  I love how it’s warmed up by the bamboo blinds, wood shelves, and gold decor.Mid Century Modern Remodel Mid Century Modern Remodel Mid Century Modern Remodel

Her island is a masterpiece. Double wide, it has drawers, microwave, and a second oven on one side and cupboards on the opposite side.

Since she doesn’t have a pantry, Leslie maximized the kitchen storage space with pull out drawers that have organizers inside. Leslie’s kitchen is from Ikea!Mid Century Modern Remodel
