Krisel Would Approve

People often ask me whether a particular remodel, improvement, or finish is “good?” Well, what does that even mean? I think something most people forget about the mid-century modern movement is that these houses were designed to be experimental, to try new things, and to NOT be rooted deep in stiff traditions.

Of course, I’m a big fan of effortless, timeless, design. And sometimes when I see a beautiful custom mid-century modern home, my first inclination is to hope that the owners don’t change a thing. But that’s really not the spirit of these homes. Especially the pioneers like Krisel who wanted to bring more functional designs to the masses.

These home has been beautifully re-invented with contemporary materials. But what’s amazing is just how well the design works today. I think Krisel would be proud of that. This is probably the nicest one I’ve seen in the Fullerton neighborhood and someone who appreciates needs to snatch it up.

If you think you might be that someone, reach out and we can make it happen.
