AFTER 20 YEARS OF URBAN LIVING, my husband, James Peters, and I decided to move to Bainbridge Island, a short ferry ride from downtown Seattle where midcentury homes are prevalent, coveted and seem mightily at home in the emerald environment. All it took was one home tour to make our move official, a cabin from 1960. ONE AND DONE First on our list of properties was an amazing home on almost five acres in West Port Madison. Our longer planned real estate search ended with this home. Despite the neglect, 977 days spent on the market and some wacky attempts at staging, we saw a mid-century jewel in the rough that we were itching to polish. It seemed that an exceptionally long, skinny floor plan and a dated kitchen and bathrooms were scaring…

We saw this bright period kitchen on Atomic Ranch’s Facebook group and wanted to know more. Here’s the scoop on Kristine Disney’s kitchen: My home was built in 1957 by the original homeowner’s father; I purchased the house after her death in 2012. I was searching for a midcentury ranch that had not had a big-box flip. This one was in immaculate condition and exactly what I was looking for—it even has a pink bathroom! It was on the Wheat Ridge, Colo., 2020 Midcentury and Modern Home Tour in 2013. In the kitchen I didn’t have to do much beyond paint. The cabinets and laminate countertops are original, while the floors are new VCT tile from Armstrong, with flecks of orange and turquoise, just like the walls and countertop. I also replaced…

In the early 1950s, my father, Richard B. Isenhour, started building houses he called ‘contemporary’ in the growing town of Lexington, Ky. Even then I knew these homes were different than those where my buddies lived. Their houses, which often mimicked a Cape Cod design on the outside, were a series of rooms with doors. My dad had begun to experiment with something different: low-slope cathedral ceilings and high windows, which made the open rooms much lighter. However, I didn’t think much about it at the time. I was born in 1950 and was more interested in transistor radios, black-and-white TVs and car designs. What kid cared about houses? BASIC TRAINING In the summer of 1955, my dad had given up chemical engineering for the life of a building contractor. He built a…

Farmington Hills, Mich. My 1,800-square-foot house was built in 1965. It has a very open-concept floor plan with vaulted ceilings, trapezoid windows and exposed beams. I have always been into Jetsons/space-age-style furnishings in bright, eye-popping colors. In the living room are a club chair, sofa and rare end- and cocktail tables from the circa 1972 Steelcase Soft Seating Series. Their molded fiberglass bodies have clear Lucite bases that make them appear to be floating. There is also an early edition George Nelson Coconut chair and ottoman in original fabric, and a bubble mirror by Ron Fritis. Andy Schulist Raleigh, N.C. We purchased our 1962 split-level, custom-built home in 2004 from the family of the original owner. The living room, dining room and eat-in kitchen are on the mid-level, while three large bedrooms and two…
