A mid-century modern home shows a creative mix of spectacular Eichler-style architecture and contemporary interior decorating ideas that create beautifully updated living spaces. California-based studio Gustave Carlson Design and Atlanta-based Atelier Davis renovated a local Eichler-style house built in 1971 in Palo Alto. The project honored history while changing the spaces for a modern lifestyle. The home integrates energy efficiency and sustainability while preserving the original, iconic, mid-century modern architectural design.

The airy, light-filled, and comfortable architectural interiors celebrate modern design ideas and enhance the quality of the contemporary lifestyle. Triangular transom windows are beautiful architectural elements that fill the entryway with natural light. A custom Dutch door welcomes guests to the home. Once inside, Eichler’s signature post-and-beam architectural designs create distinct home interiors providing bright and open spaces for art collections.
