Mike and Lindsey, did you think that we forgot you, when we announced the our The Hard Way Awards for 2014 Kitchen Remodel and Bathroom Remodel? No way! We saved you up so that we can honor you with our first-ever Retro Renovation The Hard Way Award – for Lifetime Achievement. Longtime readers will of course recognize Mike and Lindsay, they are avid mid-century enthusiasts — and they have spent a lot of time contributing to this blog… to this community, via their remodeling projects since 2012.
Renovating their 1964 Edward Durell Stone “House of Good Taste”
Truly epic, in 2014 they purchased and renovated a 1964 Edward Durell Stone “House of Good Taste.”
- Mike chronicled their efforts in an eight-part series here on Retro Renovation — read all his stories here.
Some photos from that project… which included restoring original terrazzo flooring in the living room and dining room… installing poured concrete floors in adjacent spaces… gut-remodeling the kitchen… and creating gorgeous wood doors and shelving:
Gentle remodels to two 1949 pink bathrooms
Mike and Lindsey have been with us since 2012, thought. They were first bit by the bug — by pink bathrooms, of course!
- We first met this dynamic duo in 2012, when they gently renovated the pink bathroom (above) in their (previous) 1949 house.
- And can you believe it, they actually had two pink bathrooms in that house. A year later, they updated a few features of the other pink bathroom, too — uncovering additional original pink floor tile along the way.
No pressure, Mike and Lindsey, but what’s next? Ummmm…. maybe just simply enjoying the new/1964 house? Yes!
Congratulation and thank you again, for all your generous contributions to the blog! xoxo
