craving some ranch

There is a home on our family walk that we always pass and when we do I always tell my husband that if there ever is a for sale sign out front then I want to pursue it. The style of the home does not rank in his Top 20 but I really see its potential.

For now I will get the mid-century ranch home style out of my system by posting pictures. Do you remember this spread of Barrie Benson's home in Domino? Also do you like all of the red and orange accents?

LOVE that style of home. My husband isn't fond of them either though.

This home is one of my favorites from domino. I never get sick of it! This feature is a few years old and it still looks good! :)

I live in a mid 60's ranch and I so wish mine looked like that! I wish we had the vaulted ceilings (I mention doing that to my husband and he just rolls his eyes and says"Ka-ching $$!")

I love the feel that a ranch has. I think it would be really nice to live in one - that or a old farmhouse.

I like my houses like I like my beans: ranch style, Daddy-o.

I HEART that house! I love all things mid-century modern. Note to Phoenicians: Modern Home Tour coming up April 17th! You can get tickets at Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art!

This is my favorite style home too... one level, windows everywhere, and comfortably retro. Thanks for sharing the spread!! This goes in my inspiration file.
