Sample text

That kidney-shaped table was a custom feature they’d enjoyed at their previous home, so she duplicated it in a larger scale in this house. In the dining area, a niche houses an IKEA buffet and wall cabinet that pick up the themes of white plus warm wood plus metal accents at play in the living room and adjacent kitchen. Because the space is just a touch larger than the credenza, and the same kitchen backsplash tile is used, the installation reads as a far pricier built-in. The oft-cited “Less is More” quotation is actually employed here: note the artful arrangement of the serving pieces behind the frosted glass, the decorative items limited to a mere three on the buffet—a Charley Harper print and stainless vessels by Jacobsen—and a Savoy vase by Alvar Aalto on the table.

But please eschew granite and marble—they have no place in a postwar home. Appliances Scale is important in the ranch kitchen. Instead of a six-burner, restaurant-grade stove with stainless steel backsplash and oversize hood dominating a small space, a cooktop and wall oven will keep your kitchen more authentic looking. Thermador and Westinghouse were among the appliance lines chosen for these houses when they were new, and they and Electrolux have models that are a bit smaller and more in tune with the unpretentiousness of these homes.

Nestled against a wall with high clerestory windows, a curvaceous couch and ergonomic side chairs gather around a pedestal coffee table. There are multiple musicians in the family, and a piano is tucked next to the fireplace for practice sessions. In front of that, two Nelson Coconut chairs and an Isamu Noguchi coffee table make a great spot for a drink, with a warm fire at your back and a treetop view. None of their midcentury pieces are pristine after 20-odd years of cats and kids, but the couple takes that in stride.
