For this home renovation project, our client wanted a new, more sophisticated and refined look for her early 1960s home while maintaining its Mid-Century Modern character.

A vision for a stylish update

With a creative mix of colors and textures, we embarked on a home renovation transformation to create a stylish and tasteful update for a great family home. The goal was to retain the Mid-Century Modern style while removing outdated elements.

A home renovation with attention to detail

After removing the dated siding, we installed two different styles: horizontal HardiePlank® on the upper levels and vertical reverse Batten cedar siding below, then added color accents with trim details around the doors and windows.

As an important part of the design, color selection added depth and visual interest to architectural details. The existing front door, garage doors, and windows were retained and all repainted as part of the overall color scheme.

The front entryway was transformed to be more inviting and add more protection and shelter from the weather. Rough sawn fir was used for the overhead trellis above the entry and on woodwork above the garage doors. Stucco panels around the entryway door and garage doors provide texture and visual interest.

Slate tile tops stucco columns used on steps and walkways. The driveway concrete was replaced with a stamped and stained concrete treatment. Pedestal lights provide both function and style, adding a classic look to the home.

This home renovation is a great example of what can be accomplished with the creative use of color and textures.
