Pure mid-century wonder …
Case Study House #22, The Stahl House, Architect Pierre Koenig, 1959-1960, Photograph by Julius Shulman.
If you want to see the house in a movie watch Galaxy Quest. If you want to buy an architecture buff a wow Christmas present get the Taschen Case Study Houses: The Complete CSH Program, 1945-1966. In a pinch you can use the outsize volume to build a fort or barricade a doorway.
This was the house I wanted to live in when I was a kid! I still do.
This is what I learned about living in one of these mid-century beauties – lots of glass – lots of heat loss in the winter. And, they have to be well placed on the property – for obvious fish bowl reasons 😉
That is a given…lol. No this fantasy is in my movie life. No glaring sun, not too hot, not too cold. Just right. Oh and Thelma Ritter is the wise cracking maid.
Could it be possible you are a fan of “Pillow Talk”? It’s my “go to” I-need-a-nice-dose-of Doris and Rock cheer movie — and I LOVE the sets 🙂
Am I a fan?
You are my inspiration….. Vickie
Alma: (to the elevator oporator Harry) Beatnik!
So is it any wonder? You captured me and now I’m under your spell…
I used to sing that interspersed with –
Around the world in eigh–ty days. We carried on when hope was gone to make our ren-dez-vous…
It’s a wonder my parents didn’t put me up for adoption.
Vickie, I am going to start calling you Little Sister. Isn’t the universe amazing? when I was little I used to go outside in Granny’s back yard…I must have been nine… and look up at the stars and sing. “When you wish upon a star…makes no difference who you are anything your heart desires will come to you.” That reminds me, For another story time. I have to tell you about Bryant, Peter Pan and Disneyland. .
That view is incredible…beautiful.
Jetliner views. It’s a WOW.
my dream house!!!
It looks like the Singleton house on Mulholland dr. 😀
Richard Neutra beauty!!!
I think I saw a article about a Richard Neutra house for sale recently. It’s funny but I got Galaxy Quest for the Thanksgiving break for the kiddies to watch. I’ll have an eye out for this marvel.
Have you seen it? It’s a guilty delight!!!
Only in a photo layout. Made me want to have a martini.
Oh, no Galaxy Quest, no, first time. Love S. Weaver.
I forgot to say how smashing you looked in the dress you created. Enjoy the movie and the martini! xox, V
Love this for the vintage dream, but my real dream house is the one in “Downton Abbey”. 😎
