Welcome to Mid-Century Living!
My name is Kimberly and I’m a longtime admirer of mid-century design. In 2010 my husband (Andis) and I bought our first home and it’s a beautiful old custom built 1954-56 atomic ranch house in Napa, CA. The original owners claimed that the design was inspired by Joseph Eichler so we refer to our home as our “Likeler.” We decided to relocate to Napa after Andis got a job offer in the area that he couldn’t refuse. As for myself, I’m a freelance writer and I write regularly for Turner Classic Movies and Publishers Weekly. I also update my own film blog, Cinebeats, as often as possible.
I plan on sharing my adventures in home restoration and remodeling as well as various retro inspired decorating tips, gardening and landscaping ideas, recipes and anything else that falls under the banner of “Mid-Century” or “Living.” I’ll also be writing about local issues and various things that interest me as a new home owner and last but certainly not least, this blog will also serve as a news & info site for my Etsy Shop – Mid-Century Living.
