Mid-Century Beauty

As you all know, I'm a sucker for a true mid-century house. I hope to own one of these beauties one day, and until then, there's no harm in shopping the listings. There's a realtor out of Dallas that sells exclusively mid-century marvels like this one and I love perusing his site for the creme de la creme of mid-century homes.

This one in Fort Worth sold recently, and it is such a stunner.

It's clearly had some work/been really well kept up.

Complete with gorgeous and I would imagine original terrazzo floors.

Love the 70's crystal chandelier and the Milo Baughman style chairs in the dining room.

And of course I'm into this room with the Barcelona style seating, and more Milo Baughman style furniture. And let's not forget the gorgeous Slim Aarons print.

The best thing about mid-century homes is the open feel. What's interesting is that open-concept is a must in new construction homes these days, and it was a constant in mid-century built homes. 
So ahead of it's time.

The kitchen is the one piece I'm not crazy about, but it mainly just needs to be updated while keeping with the style of the original house.

This bar is too legit to quit. Complete with that gorgeous brass foot rail.

How ridic is the wallpaper behind that bed? It would look oh so sexy with a fabulous upholstered headboard against it.

I'm assuming that a large portion of this tile is original to the house and it's so cool.
I know we all love white, white and more white these days, but isn't it fun to have a look that's a little outside the box?

And omg, this FREAKING TUB. Would Kelly Wearstler die over this or what?

I'm OBSESSED with this bathroom. Love the emerald color.

The outdoor spaces are just as stunning as the interior.

I have to say, for listing photos, these are pretty fabulous. I think if this were my home I'd try to achieve more of a mix of furniture styles instead of making absolutely everything mid-century, but all in all, it's pretty wonderful.
