Interviews

 

Who are the people whom so carefully restored and decorated that mid-century house? Who’s the architect that designed the contemporary Modernist retreat that amazed us and what inspires him/her during the design process?

These are only few of the questions we ask ourselves when interviewing the house owners, architects and various professionals you will find in this section of Mid-Century Home.

We scratch the surface a little bit to bring you a different perspective on houses, buildings and people we find interesting and love.
