Midcentury Modern Mayhem.

Having purchased a midcentury modern home in Rockville, Maryland, I'm constantly reminded about the history, its architectural details, interior design, and how it is all the rage even in the 21st century. A trend from the 1950s and 1960s is still relevant today. As my grandmother said, "They don't make them like they used to." I got excited when I saw the date of 1961 on the gas gauge in our basement. The year 1961... "Please, Mr. Postman" by the Marvelettes, Disney's "The Parent Trap," and "101 Dalmatians." My adventure began buying a house that fit the theme. Even my husband has converted, all proud to find midcentury modern items at flea markets and antique stores. This is our adventure into all things midcentury modern and how they relate to today.
