see below link for a blog by resident realtors in the long beach cliff may tract
http://activerain.com/blogsview/62228/P ... n-Homes-in

its annoying to see factually incorrect references made by supposed experts. thank goodness for the kramers.

when we visited their "flip" on stevely in the summer during an open house, yes, everything was brand spanking new, but there was something just off about the interior. i think what came through in its remodel was a misunderstanding, or non-understanding, of mid-century modern. it was a strange mix of contemporary, modern and mid-century in its most kitsch form (not that that is bad if it's done right). anyhow just ranting...

(disclosure - neither of the aforementioned were involved in our buying process)
it's good. ...for now.

At least they didn't stucco it to death and do a Home Depot number on it.

Looks like these kids know just enough about a Cliff May to keep from doing any lasting damage, but not enough to do it really right. They should have read the book at least...the Holly oven in the original looks nice in the pic. And I liked the strange grid over the kitchen in the original pic.

Just viewed the before and after pics. Disgusting but I'm not suprised. Common decency precludes one from taking a "mod-nazi" stance against everyone that just doesn't get the mid-century modern (or any "modern") aesthetic. It's sadly apparent that the rare commodity that is a mid-century modern house is largely not recognized as such and is for the most part just considered another "old house". Sure it's easy to call somebody who does this sort of thing an idiot but that really does nothing to further the preservation of something that is close to becoming extinct. I guess this is the sort of thing that happens when someone attempts to profit off the latest real estate "hot" item without having a clue as to why it's "hot".

Perhaps this new, improved look could be called Post-Mortem. At least they replaced the really ugly ceiling fan with one that's just ugly.
