Inspired by Palm Spring’s Modernism Week, the celebratory heartbeat of mid-century architecture, design, art, fashion, and culture that’s currently in full swing, we take a look at eight recently renovated L.A. mid-century pads that received some contemporary-inspired love—we think the results are the bee’s knees.
Set against a hillside in Silver Lake, this completely renovated property features a stunning living room where a large corner fireplace was removed and a wall of cabinets added.
Located just above Mulholland, this home makes the most of its expansive views by featuring floor-to-ceiling windows throughout.
Set in La Cañada Flintridge, this bedroom features the same redwood cedar flooring found throughout the large home.
This kitchen in the Pacific Palisades had its dividing wall taken down and includes non-built-in appliances at the request of the designer.
The Fleetwood sliding glass doors featured in this contemporary update on a mid-century property in Eagle Rock serve to open up the entire space.
Located in the Hollywood Hills, this home underwent extensive structural renovation before landing on the open interior/exterior layout you see before you.
Maintaining all the charm of its original 1963 construction, this Los Angeles residence exemplifies the Mid-Century Modern style.
Designed by architect Craig Ellwood and built in 1965, the Moore House in Los Feliz was recently updated to include more modern features such as a swimming pool, while retaining charming features such as the original koi pond.
