As you can probably tell by the look of my site and some of the neighborhoods I gravitate towards, mid-century modern has my heart. That’s why I’m so excited about the Mid-Century Modern home tour being done by the Charlotte Museum of History!
If you’re not familiar with the term, “mid-century modern” is an architectural, interior, product, and graphic design era that generally describes mid-20th century developments from roughly 1933 to 1965, particularly in the areas of design, architecture and urban development. The style was characterized by clean simplicity and integration with nature, usually with ample windows and open floor plans, with the intention of opening up interior spaces and giving a feeling of bringing the outdoors in.
This tour includes six to eight homes in the SouthPark area. The homes will be open from 10am to 4pm this Saturday, September 10th, and you tour at your own pace.
If you buy your tickets today, and you’re a member of the Charlotte Museum of History or the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, your ticket price will also include entry into the Bechtler’s exhibit “The House That Modernism Built”.
If you’re as in to mid-century modern design as I am, this is not an event you’ll want to miss! Hope to see you on the tour route!
