Mid-century modern stans will be positively smitten with this Connecticut construction, which has all the glorious trimmings of MCM design. The brown, single-story exterior is neutral enough to sink into the surroundings, but the front door, painted in a happy hue of tangerine, is a welcome pop of color.

Just inside, soaring wooden ceilings and plywood wall paneling let the accent wall take the spotlight: Going up the stairs to the main level, a retro mural with abstract geometric shapes in shades of green, pink, and blue covers the wall.

In the living room, a tan brick fireplace stretches up to meet the cathedral ceiling and more wood paneling and beams create a cool and casual hangout space.

Floor-to-ceiling glass looks through into a spacious, enclosed sunroom which is perfect for entertaining, thanks to its fun color combination of lime green walls and teal ceilings and trim — with stripy carpet to match. There’s ample space to dine or lounge in some cozy chairs while soaking in the sunlight, without getting too hot, thanks to the pair of ceiling fans.

The striking color choices continue in the primary bedroom, where a gorgeous saturated shade of rosy pink graces the walls.

A full wall of built-in drawers and direct access to the deck are lovely bonuses, along with an ensuite bathroom that boasts glass block detailing aplenty.

For families looking for a home with enough space for an au pair or in-law suite, the lower level can deliver on that. Down one set of stairs from the entryway, you’ll find another bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette, and a spacious carpeted living area.
