This 1953 Boise, Idaho ranch home is brimming with midcentury appeal— especially in this cheerful corner of their carefully reimagined kitchen.
HOMEOWNER ROB BAKER, OF MODERN MAILBOX, AND HIS WIFE, CARRIE QUINNEY, transformed their ranch into a cheerful, vibrant display of midcentury treasures.
While refreshing the kitchen, the couple focused on emphasizing what was already there—adding a green backsplash from Heath Ceramics, and installing new hardware and countertops. However, the real star of the space is the breakfast nook. “Adding the tikis and Nelson Saucer Bubble Pendant tied it all together,” says Rob.
A boomerang-inspired outlet cover, designed by Rob, is a hallmark of their attention to detail while the space as a whole is a fun and funky representation of the couple’s joyful approach to midcentury design.
