Family life in a "time capsule" - from dwelling to belongings, this family resides in their own recreation of the fifties. They found their 1957 home two years ago, and according to Matthew, "What sold me was I looked through the windows and saw blond brick on the fireplace and an original NuTone clock doorbell." More below:

According to the Star Tribune article, Matthew has been collecting midcentury modern for seven years and his passion for the era has furnished the home and has also helped turn a profit. He relays a story in which he recognized a Gino Sarfatti lamp in a consignment shop, purchased it for $99, and sold it on ebay for $4500. Lesson - it pays off (in more ways than one) to go with what you know and love for your home decor.
