evolution of design

Notice something different? If not, flip to the cover and then come back. We have a new logo! As you have seen by now, we aren’t abandoning the magazine’s roots and we aren’t going to change the magazine’s overall direction. Quite simply, Atomic Ranch has grown and it needs a new logo to go along with its increased newsstand and online presence. When the team first visited the idea of updating the logo we struggled. The previous logo was amazing and the roofline is iconic. Then we looked back at the original version—the one that graced the cover of 12 issues. It was fun, quirky and brought bold doses of color to the cover. The logo that replaced it celebrated the architecture we all love by literally looking like a ranch…

Boise, Idaho "[My husband Mark and I] stumbled upon the Cruzen Mountain View development set on the West Bench of Boise in the late ‘90s,” Sarai Anne Pataljek says. “Attracted by the large lots and custom midcentury homes, we started driving the neighborhood weekly.” Their efforts paid off when they found a ranch with great bones and features—including a breezeblock outer wall, pink bathroom and built-in kitchen booth—that just needed TLC. “Staying true to the original design, we are slowly breathing new life into our ranch,” Sarai says. “Inspired by your magazine, with the help of vintage furniture dealers, our house has become a well-preserved example of midcentury design we are proud to call home.” Way to go, Idaho! San Luis Obispo, Calif. “This view of our master bedroom is currently my favorite…

a kagan design, lost and found

This story goes back about 13 years to when my exposure to midcentury design had just started to develop. At the time there was a local monthly antiques show that I would regularly attend. Every few years I would feel the need to set up a space—despite the fact that setting up a booth is always difficult, because shopping is so much more fun than selling. On one such occasion, I had been out shopping most of the day and had returned to set up my space but felt the need to get back out there. You know, to make another quick trip around to see who and what has arrived, as that “one piece” could have shown up. I have a good friend, Marc, with whom I shared warehouse space,…

family-friendly midcentury

DESIGN MUST-HAVES: • Lanai windows opening to an outdoor eating area • Contrasting lighter wood tones and white accents to brighten the redwood ceilings • Wall shelves with built-in lights illuminating lower shelves replacing hanging cabinets WHEN YOU VISIT THE MILLER FAMILY’S FUN, CLEAN-LINED KITCHEN, it’s hard to believe the space was ever any different. “With two little boys, we needed more space inside and outside,” Anna Miller says. Her husband, Form Miller, had initiated their midcentury search. “I’d looked for nine months at maybe 80 houses all over the East Bay,” Form says. “From the moment I walked in the front door, I knew this was our kind of home.” They put in their bid the same day Anna saw the house, and they lived there for a year before making any changes. They…

a collected home

“The addition of a Jim Sherrill original restored mahogany sculpture to the front yard has been a natural fit,and has added an allure to the property.” BEFORE SETTLING INTO THEIR 1963 HICKORY, NORTH CAROLINA HOME, Chad Baker and Tina Clement spent several years on the hunt for their dream home. As they scoured for the perfect midcentury dwelling to call their own, the couple found themselves so wrapped up in their search that they now lightheartedly refer to it as “stalking potential homes.” FINDING HOME Not just any midcentury home would do for this determined couple. Several houses they viewed left them feeling disappointed, as the interiors of the homes had long lost their original features and true midcentury appeal. Despite these discouraging results, the couple continued on with their real estate agents…
