Build Your Own Sunny Mid-Century Haven
Nestled between palm trees and bathed in hazy sunshine, a collection of iconic Southern California homes keep the mid-century aesthetic very much alive. Dubbed "Alexander Homes," after the construction company that brought them to life in the 1950s, these mid-century relics feature open floor plans, expansive windows, and flat or slanted roofs that hold up exposed ceiling beams.
We're still inspired by these stylized homes today, and have curated a collection around their signature look to help carry on their retro-cool tradition. Shop vintage teak furniture, prints and pillows with retro pops of colors like orange and chartreuse, and bronze accents reminiscent of the bright desert sun, and bring a little of this iconic look into your own space.
