Caterpillar House midcentury living room

Caterpillar House

Caterpillar House is the first LEED Platinum home on the central California coast. Located in the Santa Lucia Preserve in Carmel Valley, the home is a modern reinterpretation of mid-century ranch style. JDG’s interiors echo the warm minimalism of the architecture and the hues of the natural surroundings.

Laura Gaskill added this to 16 Ways to Shake Up Your Summer Bar
Play up a midcentury feel with loungeworthy furniture. If you really want that Mad Men look, don't stop with the bar. Complete the room with a swooping chaise longue or a sleek sofa, Danish teak chairs and a low credenza.
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to 10 Midcentury Features to Treasure
Oversize windows. The living room was oversize and acted as living room and family room. The high ceilings were pitched out toward the view. The ceiling extended beyond the sliders and continued outside, which made the gables appear endless.
Mitchell Parker added this to Why We Love Midcentury Modern Design
So your midcentury obsession is actually a healthy activity. (Be sure to tell your spouse that the next time you're browsing online for another Noguchi coffee table.)The Apple EffectEven for those who can't recall the era, midcentury modern design has intrinsic value that our iPhone-saturated minds can still enjoy. You can thank Apple in more ways than one. First, having so much information at our fingertips — a habit that Apple engendered — causes us to seek refuge in less-chaotic things.“Minimalist sensibility is in vogue again, in part due to this romantic notion of the past,” says Peteran. “But, I suspect, also due to another form of rebellion — a desire for something simpler, probably in response to our fast paced, multitasking, overinformed, frantic, fractured, ethernet-driven lives.”But, ironically, Apple's sleek, minimalist product designs have also helped influence the yearning for more streamlined products, especially among the younger generations. "They appreciate the simplicity and beauty of design seen in Apple," says Rochelle Kramer, a Realtor who specializes in midcentury modern houses. "It's the same appreciation for design seen in midcentury modern." Architect Steven Randel agrees. "If you think about how Apple nearly disappeared in the mid-1990s, then look at their rise to current trend dominance, you can see a correlation," he says. "Everything about Apple is beautiful, efficient and modern, with an intuitive edge. These are all the marks of the theory established by the birth of modernism in the early 20th century."More: Roots of Style: Midcentury Modern DesignMidcentury Styles Respond to Modern LifeThanks, Steve: Apple-Inspired Design Around the House
