The Wright style, the right home

A mid-century modern home is brought back to life

The outdated white painted brick fireplace was covered in drywall and painted a deep gray tone to blend in with the rest of the décor.

This 3,000 square-foot home is based on Frank Lloyd Wright’s 1949 Melvyn Maxwell Smith House located in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.

The remodeled kitchen features the perfect mix of stainless steel, crisp white countertops, and gray flat panel cabinetry.

A floating vanity and radiant heated flooring, along with a dressing bench topped with a contemporary piece of art, establish the modern look in the master bathroom.

A Kohler faucet and stainless steel undermount sink complement the modern design of the kitchen.

The front landscaping was simplified to complement the design of this mid-century modern home.

The foyer is adorned with an entry table, wall art and an eye-catching charger offering hints of colorful copper for a one-of-a-kind space.

Splashes of red—seen here in the furniture and various accessories—add excitement to this remodeled home.

The original cherry wood ceilings and oversized stone fireplace establish the mid-century modern aesthetic seen throughout the house.

A stone niche tucked into the corner of the entry was kept intact, greeting guests and offering a glimpse into the oversized great room.

The fitness center is housed in this remodeled outbuilding surrounded by colorful landscaping.

A wall separating the great room from the kitchen was removed to allow the spaces to seamlessly flow together.

The floor-to-ceiling windows overlook this relaxing outdoor patio area complete with a linear gas fireplace and outdoor furniture.

The highlight of the relaxing master bedroom is the oversized leather headboard that was custom-made for the space.

The original laundry room was transformed into a unique wine room, with a stackable washer and dryer inconspicuously tucked behind a cabinet in the corner of the room.

Three gray rectangular planters filled with ornamental grasses line the walkway leading up to the front entry door.

A tufted chaise lounge is positioned in front of the custom Murphy bed tucked behind the floor-to-ceiling mirror.

An outbuilding next to the home now serves as a convenient fitness center filled with a variety of equipment for the owners to use.

The master bathroom includes an oversized closet as well as storage for the homeowner's shoe collection.
