I come across a lot of interesting news stories and blog posts every week. I occasionally use Twitter to share things but I decided to start collecting the best links of the past week into a “Monday Link Roundup” because I’m rarely online during the weekend and a lot of good stuff accumulates in my news feed during that time. This way I can also easily keep track of news and stories that appeal to me and hopefully they’ll appeal to Mid-Century Living readers as well.
MONDAY LINK ROUNDUP: 6.25.2011
- From Apartment Therapy – Mark’s “Retro Cabin Mod” in Eagle Rock (House Tour)
Mark Brosmer takes readers on a tour of his beautiful 1930s/40s Spanish style home filled with mid-century furniture. I really liked the cozy, lived-in look of the place with its large windows, warm wood paneling and beamed ceiling.
- From Retro Renovation – 101 photos of the wallpaper — vintage and new
Retro Renovation recently shared a large collection of vintage wallpaper images that are a must see for anyone interested in mid-century textiles.
- From Brini Maxwell – The Maxwell Moment: The Appliance Connection – The Nutone Food Center
Brini Maxwell updates her youtube channel every week with new videos and they’re all worth watching. This week she shares her latest Craigslist find, a vintage Nutone Food Center. In case you haven’t heard of Maxwell before (and if you haven’t, what rock have you been living under?) she describes herself as “Part Donna Reed, part Mary Tyler Moore, Maxwell makes kitsch feel classy through her unparalleled personal flair for home design, entertaining and savvy household tips.”
- From the San Mateo Daily Journal – Documenting Eichler
An interview with Monique Lombardelli, the relator turned filmmaker who recently finished a new documentary about real estate developer Joseph Eichler titled People In Glass Houses: The Legacy of Joseph Eichler. Below is a trailer for her upcoming film, which I’m really eager to see.
