A few weeks ago Jenny and I hit an estate sale at a beautiful (non-restored) home in Olympic Manor. Those of you that follow us or know much about this North Ballard planned community may know that this is one of the most amazing planned areas in Seattle, filled with ’50s and ’60s homes in fantastic condition. Significant Northwest Modernist residential architects designed many of the homes in Olympic Manor and it is always great to drive through the neighborhood for sales or other purposes (they get pretty into their Christmas decor there and that’s always fun to see).
Every midcentury modern house-hunter’s dream? The 1950s indoor planter! I think the photos speak for themselves.
This is what happens when good style goes bad.
