White distressed furnitures in a Mid Century?
We are in the process of putting an offer for a Mid Century home. I do not like Mid Century homes. I do not like minimalism and modern furnitures. It's so cold and uninviting. It may look sleek, but I have never really taken a liking to modern furnitures. So why are we considering it? My husband loves the floor to ceiling windows and.... the pool. And the price is a steal. But he's a guy who wouldn't think twice about hanging surfing photo from a magazine spread on the wall.
The interior needs make over. The previous owner was insane! Every room in the house has a different flooring (bamboo, wood, laminate, etc). The walls in the bathrooms are painted yellow, purple.... The fireplaces are painted red and blue. The counter tops in the kitchen are of different materials. It's a nightmare.... but also a great chance to re-decorate.
Since we live close to the beach, I want more of a beach cottage decor. I love the kitchen in "Somethings Gotta Give". I want to re-do the whole kitchen in that style --- white cupboards, white brick subway tile back splash, dark wood floors. Our dining table and furniture all have that antique white distressed look.
That is, paint it all white and add built-in book shelves and white distressed country looking furniture. Can I further add a deck or porch?
Porch and French doors were a no no.
Should we walk away from this home? or can we get away with decorating a midcentury home with white distressed furnitures? Please help!!
