About a month ago, I had the great pleasure to meet Denver area Realtor and Midcentury Modern expert Adrian Kinney. He was just so passionate about modernism, I just loved his enthusiasm on the topic.  In addition to selling Denver area MCM homes, he's organizing a Mid Century Modern week, modeled after the one in Palm Springs. 

Speaking of Palm Springs, the Denver area is home to one of the largest collections of Cliff May homes outside of the tony California resort town. Kinney lives in one of them. He's the go-to expert on May in Denver. Tune in to hear this podcast today. 

I'll be adding to some podcast extras as I go along, extras only available to MidCentury Modern 24/7 members. You'll get exclusive access to photos, typed letters, blueprints and more that you won't see else where. You'll simply log into the exclusive, members-only Resources on my website.

  • Holy smokes! Five MidCentury Modern homes will be on the market during the upcoming Modernism week in Arizona. I'm guessing more than a few will be under contract before the big event. 
  • A rare opportunity to see inside the famous Wave House in Palm Desert - nickname comes from the roller-coaster shaped roof that was hidden for many years. Check out that unique roof here
