A retro renovation

Pam of Retro Renovation wrote the other day about a blast-from-the-past mid-century modern home she posted and I loved it so much I decided to post it today instead of doing my typical Flickr finds.

This 1962 home is owned by Greg McKinney and is located in Granada Hills, California. Like Pam, I really like the use of grasscloth on the walls, pops of orange throughout the spaces and the incredible vintage lighting. What a fabulous job you've done Greg! And thanks Pam for sharing this with us!

What a lovely retro designed home. The oranges make it cheerful and lively. Luv the sunburst wall clocks. So retro and so nice too.

I really enjoy the painting. It compliments the other colors well.

Thanks, Kim, for posting this -- Greg really deserved it. My favorite for sure is the matching set of orange Moe lights.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this! The clean, fresh neutrals mixed with the punches of color are wonderful! The end tables bring back memories of childhood. Great post!
