Updating ranch style home interior
When Kendal Agins Friedman purchased her 1959 California ranch house, she did so with an almost alarming level of certainty.
It's hard to believe anyone could get past the dreary brown exterior with sherbet trim — much less fall for the chopped-up floor plan.
When arranged in multiples, these soda siphons, salvaged British lockboxes, and oversize 19th-century tea tins appear not as bric-a-brac but singular graphic moments.
Because of the easy transition between spaces and flowing freedom, lighting can go a long way throughout these homes.
"I was seduced by the gorgeous location," explains the interior designer, "with majestic oaks in the front yard and the San Francisco Bay out back." To her, the home's potential was immediately clear.

You can easily create a home full of vintage outlines and welcoming wood foundations.
But you can also add some modern touches to create something unique and revitalizing – like this contemporary living space did! Give your ranch home an ultra chic uplift by going completely outside-the-box of this family-friendly home.
