A Mid-Century facelift

Sometimes it takes an outside eye to help visualize the potential your home has. Here is a curb appeal facelift we did for a client who was interested in purchasing this outdated, mid-century home. He knew it had good bones but needed help with envisioning how to improve the overall look of the exterior. We were able to give him a visual representation showing how a few improvements could transform this unadorned, outdated home into a stunner.

For this facelift, the mid-century modern homes commonly found on the west coast were the source of inspiration.

To achieve this look, we gave this girl a new set of contemporary doors and modern brushed nickel address numbers. Replaced the sliding doors with matching windows and added Ipe shiplap siding for a sleek look. People often underestimate the effects of good landscaping. We replaced the existing landscaping with plants that are more structured, having straight lines and geometric forms.

Here is the final look
