Classy Mid-Century Modern Update







It is amazing to see how far great vision and taste can go to transform this drab 1950's house into the stunning Mid-Century modern home above that happens to be located in Salt Lake City. What a fabulous and inspiring before and after undertaking! Isn't this one a beauty? Wish we were in the market to buy right now -- because you really don't come across too many of these beauties in Utah. I am going to pause now, and go pick my jaw up off the floor.

All photos by Tyler Gourley and you can find more about the home here.

I have found my dream house! haha I think you might be interested in what I'm doing:

I am moving to India this year to volunteer. I'm so so so excited about it and am going to be working in rural areas trying to provide basic services that we all take so much for granted. It is going to be an amazing trip and I'm fundraising for it right now!

If you spread the word you get a MOOD RING!

Pretty sweet eh? :)

Stunning!

Sara said...

I love that kitchen. Although, when seeing places like these, I can't help but wonder what they look like dirty--or do places like these get dirty? ;)

I don't think I would ever take my surroundings for granted if I lived in a home like that! Amazing!
