Location: Arcadia — Phoenix, Arizona
My boyfriend Jose and I (as well as our dog, bb, and cat, leopold) live in this cozy mid-century modern Ralph Haver patio home in sunny Phoenix, AZ. Ralph Haver was a well known mid century modern architect here in Phoenix in the 50s and 60s. The home was built in the 60s and features funky perforated and paneled walls as well as a round kitchen!
I work from home as a silversmith and my boyfriend is a private wealth advisor. We designed our home to match the time that it was built. Brass and chrome are sprinkled throughout the house. We also wanted to bring in a lot of different colors to cut out the white ceilings, walls and floors. The blue curtains help with this as well as the round blue gradient wall that separates the living room and kitchen. Wood furniture and fluffy wool carpets were used to warm up the space.
I picked up a lot of our furnishings thrifting and in antique malls. We have local art on the walls made by friends here in Phoenix. We have also refinished and built some of the furniture, like our coffee table which Jose built by hand. We had design help from Rachel Simmons.
