Mid-century Modern Style

Alameda-HouseMid-century modern style homes gained popularity in post-WWII American suburbs. Here, new desires for informality coupled with fewer divisions between parents and children began to be recognized in design. Meanwhile, the proliferation of television sets impacted floor plans by decreasing the demand for small rooms dedicated to libraries or activities like sewing. These homes feature open floor plans, great rooms and minimize the division between interior and exterior with lots of large windows and/or skylights.
