Christopher's Mid Century Condo
What I Love About My Home
By playing swatches of color against the original wood flooring of our 1949 condo, we've been able to bring in fun patterned items. Getting ready for bed with a lamp that throws floral shadows, and cooking with a row of spice jars within reach just makes life fun. I knocked out a wall to open the kitchen to the living area, then divided it with a length of glu-lam that functions as work table, dining area, and additional counter space. This created a cube pantry, which I happily colored green.
Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home
Finding space for books. When my wife moved in, she brought her family's Norwegian trunk, and piles of books. The trunk's traditional pattern softened some of the hard lines of wood and metal, and is home to games and craft supplies. The books have simply become their own aesthetic, nearly covering an entire wall. The next challenge will be remodeling the bath.
