Mid-Century Ranch House

Niche Interiors revived this classic 1950’s Orinda ranch home which fell victim to poor remodeling choices; creating a modern take on a California ranch home, infused with our client’s ‘Mad Men’ aesthetic.

  • area / size 3,000 sqft
  • Year 2017
  • Type House,
  • The kitchen and bathrooms were updated with pops of color and pattern, modern fixtures and hardware. We replaced the traditional fireplace mantle in the living room with a floor to ceiling slate flanked by custom walnut built-ins. Swanky swivel chairs hang out in front of the fireplace and a custom sectional upholstered in navy velvet provides ample seating for parties.

    The library was given a dose of drama with black built-ins and trim and vibrant armchairs. A walnut table is paired with sculptural Holly Hunt chairs and benches for casual dining off of the media room, which features a loungey sectional and Barbara Vaughn photograph. A custom headboard grounds the master bedroom, mixed with textural fabrics and mid-century inspired nightstands. A spare bedroom becomes a perfume sampling and storage room for our client’s extensive collection.
