Millennials Love Mid Century Modern Homes - the Mad Men Influence

The original Mid Century Modern era (approximately1945-1975) is long gone, but this is one era that has legs, according to House Beautiful, beyond Baby Boomer nostalgia. As the original homes get old and more expensive to fix, the demand for new interpretations of the style will grow. (Although the tear-down trend is not fully embraced by Mid Century Modern enthusiasts.)

On that note, here's some news from the Mid Century Modern residential real estate market: 

  • a 1955 New Hampshire home, designed by a disciple of modernist Walter Gropius, is on the market. 
  • The Brady Brunch house (which served for exterior shots for the popular TV series in the 1960s and 1970s) was sold in August, will be renovated. The project will be captured on film for HGTV with members of the original Brady clan on hand.
