Pink Saturday – California Mid-Century Modern Kitchens

(Post interrupted for an announcement:

Help!!! Visit and pick anything EXCEPT ribbon loop for $1 each. Sold by the yard or piece. Contact me via phone or email with your list and it is yours! I will invoice you via PayPal. Seriously, 75% of ALL our personal and business stuff has to be gone before we move. Don't let someone else get the best trims, appliqu├ęs and tassels first!!! )

We are relocating to the Silicon Valley, South Bay, San Francisco area, California…here I come! What better place to fulfill the dream of returning to a mid-century modern ranch style home. So, I’ve been doing some research. Here’s the kitchen I would like to find. The first picture is my personal fave and the rest have a bit of country style woven into the modern.

If you love MCM as much as I do, click on any picture to go to Mid Century Home Style. And, if you have any tips for a move to the area around the intersection of 101/237, I’d love them. (I’m thinking Mountain View and an Eichler for those in the know.)

Very pretty Nancy. Congratulations on the move. You are going to my high school stomping grounds. I used to live in San Bruno, just south of South San. Lots and lots to do there and you will love it. I like that you will be so much closer. Happy Pink Saturday, Char

SOOO... glad things are moving forward on the move. Personally, I really enjoy pic. 2 the best. Give or take a few details. I imagine it wont be quite so easy to find a kitchen such as these today. Best of luck!

A move! How exciting (and difficult!) I have moved so many times...ahhhhhh!
Best of luck with your endeavor! Can't wait to see the end destination!

I just love the pink in the kitchens you showed us today!

Hi Nancy,congrats on coming back to CA...woot! I know how that feels..we lived out of state for only 4 years and I was so happy to get back here last June..I say a meet n greet is a plan after you settle you have a move date yet? Oh and I love the MCM homes too..hard to find..I know there are some near Sacramento but also have to be some where you are looking..I love kitchen #2, so traditional..the older I get, the more I want tradition..

Hi Nancy,

I love, love MCM! I'm soooooo tickled PINK for you concerning this relocation..I lived in San Diego for several years back in the late 80's..I was never the same after leaving that wonderful climate and the fabulous shopping!

I hope you'll stop by..I've finally finished my studio after almost a year of transforming, unpacking, building tables..on and on...

I'll be watching for your housing updates.. will the company put you up somewhere to take some time to find a home??

Stephanie ♥

Hello Nancy,

Congratulations on the move! Sounds like it is an exciting one for you. And you get to decorate your new home :-)

I hope the moving part and the transition will be smooth so that in no time, you'll be in your new home.

(The first pic I like cause it's simple/clean lines and real spacious and be free to move but I also love the last one :-) )

(Belated Happy PS! I know, I just came back to blogging after a longggg absence )
