Mid-century modern architecture and design is HOT.  MCM design is characterized by clean, strong geometric lines, open layouts, use of organic materials and lots of windows to bring the outdoors in.  The clean, classic look was captured flawlessly in the TV series, Mad Men which helped to popularize the MCM style.  Homes inspired by mid-century design are popping up everywhere around town these days and we're loving them! We are currently working on several mid century modern homes:  one new and one vintage. Check out the photos below--can you tell which are new and which are from the 50s?

New:  This MCM-inspired home has an open living room with plenty of windows and organic materials.  Love the low MCM-inspired sofa and swivel chairs!

Vintage:  This classic MCM yard actually belonged to Lucille Ball and Desi Arnez.  We love Lucy and this simple, minimalist MCM outdoor space!
