MCM Crush: This eye-popping 1961 gem built by architect David Hyun, located in Los Angeles.
“Mustard yellows, greens and oranges set the tone, and each additional pop of color matches perfectly. Every piece in the house is secondhand — nearly all bought at Southern California flea markets and swap meets. Vintage magazines rest on the tables and abstract-shaped mirrors adorn the walls. An old record player sits in the lounge next to dice-shaped ottomans and sunken chairs. Lava lamps, geometric shapes, and Hollywood memorabilia are constant surprises around each corner. It’s a bright one story “L” shaped home, with a pool glistening right outside the floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors. A cabana is quietly tucked away in the corner, large-leafed green plants grow high and cast shadows. Roy Orbison, Chuck Berry, and The Mamas and Papas ring loud through the home’s speaker system. This house is rare, stylish…. Inspiring.” – http://blog.freepeople.com/2015/06/peek-vintage-dream-home/?crlt.pid=camp.Yl1We48SpuW0

An excellent pictorial of “Man Caves” from the 60’s and 70’s here.
We have a passion for vintage kitchen interiors and wanted to share some of our faves with you. Most of these date from the late 50’s into the mid-60’s. We prefer the more modern Laura Petri style kitchens over the early 50’s Lucy Ricardo versions. Some of these feature design ideas we’d be happy to use today!
Set Decorator Amy Wells and Production Designer Dan Bishop have nailed the period perfectly from the show’s time span of early 60’s to 1969. Everything from furniture to distinctive props and wallpaper all come together to create “Mid Century Modern Porn” for us design addicts!
