Where it is
3444 7 St. S.W.
Mid-century modern home styles originated during the middle of the 20th century. Traditionally, the style is rooted in functionality, clean lines and simplicity. Today, the style often incorporates bright accent colours on the walls or through furniture as a standout feature. Mixing materials as a fusion of indoor and outdoor spaces is another popular focus of mid-century modern design, including vinyl and fibreglass with natural materials like wood, marble or metals.
This home boasts many mid-century modern elements with its open spaces, minimalistic furniture and decor balanced against bright pops of colour, a natural wood-burning fireplace, and plenty of natural lighting.
