By now you know that the contemporary architectural movement stemmed from mid-century modern visionaries.
So, what are the key differences between mid-century modern and postmodern (contemporary) architecture. Contemporary homes typically take minimalism to the next level with a simplified or neutral color scheme instead vibrant pops of color. Also, mid-century homes fuse with their natural environment to create a warm and inviting feel, but contemporary homes are inspired by industrialism with sharp, smooth, and clean designs.
This week we are featuring a signature contemporary architect, Vuko Tashkovich who designed 5 Winterbottom. Additionally, we are featuring a mix of mid-century and contemporary homes with one that’s a bit of a fixer upper!
As always enjoy our picks and have a great weekend!
P.S. If you have any friends or family that would enjoy this weekly update, please let us know and we would be glad to add them to our mailing list.
