Interior designer Shelby Kass faced a unique challenge renovating her 1963 family home in the San Fernando Valley, previously owned by her late grandmother. Despite the temptation to modernize completely, Kass opted for a gentler update, preserving mid-century motifs while incorporating modern elements and a clean aesthetic. Accentuated by works from Tappan artists Luke Chiswell, Umar Rashid, and Marc Gabor, the home’s new vibe strikes an elegant balance that pays homage to its original style while thoughtfully introducing new art, light, and lines that bring the home into the present tense.
“I could have modernized it with an open plan and a white, modern ranch feel. Instead I stuck to some original mid-century motifs, but with updated palettes and a cleaner, more modern attitude.”
