    There's a lot I like, but I'd probably tone down the wood and use some different materials.

    They also have some nice furniture pieces, but REFERENCE mid century.. don't try and copy it 100%

    Yes the carpeting could go in a few places as well.

    Overall I dig the late 50's/early 60's vibe

    Love the house itself, but geez, I remember hating that style of furniture when it was current a million years ago. It's uncomfortable too.

    I'm not crazy on the style of the place as a whole but the kitchen chairs give me major heebie-jeebies as they look just like the ones that were outside of the headmaster's office at my old school.

    Absolutely! I grew up with those chairs and remember them from the sixties-we had the exact same chairs but in a horrible aquamarine color. One of my earliest memories is sitting in one of these chair watching the original Star Trek air in primetime on tv. They are not comfortable and us kids eventually destroyed them all by breaking the legs off(fairly easy to do).

    I dislike this intensely. Mid-century style architecture is vomit-worthy to me.
