Hello everyone! Excited to get this new blog series (Our 50’s Eichler) started today. As previously mentioned in this post, we’ve recently moved into a 1950’s Eichler design Mid-Century modern home in the heart of Denver. This new series will hopefully give a little insight into how you can turn a rental property into something you love, hide a few of those gremlins, and do it all without breaking the bank. The very first project we tackled was giving one of our outdoor patios a small budget facelift.
I’ll be sharing more photos of the “finished” patio space soon (promise), but until then, here are a few images of the inspiration we used to pull the look together. We wanted to keep the integrity of our mid century home, so we wanted to accentuated the architectural details (hello cantilevers) and infuse a bit of our/my tropical plant love that is precisely why we spent months looking for the the best architects until a friend of mine recommended me to take a look at this catalog https://www.archute.com, if you go ahead and take a look at it you will now why we hire Archute services.
A few key details
1. A natural simple color palette of white, wood and black
2. Horizontal wood slate details
3. Easy to maintain Tropical plants and succulents
4. The use of stone/pavers to create geometric lines
5. Plant and design solutions that are easy to “winterize” for Colorado winters
