On April 15, 2008 we closed on a 1955 Mid-Century Modern home in Merriam, KS that was custom designed by the late Donald R. Hollis of Hollis + Miller Architects. We will be sharing our journey as we update the house to make it our own, while trying to stay as close to the original design as possible.

Walls Up in the Hall Bathroom & Vanity Design
As far as the vanity goes, LD designed a vanity (birch with stainless steel legs from Ikea) that will fit really well into the house. She combined the lines from the kitchen cabinets and the buffet (August 2009 blog posts) to create the vanity. The door "mechanics" will be exactly like the buffet's-all wood. Originally LD was thinking walnut or teak with wooden legs, but change the legs and the type of wood and it becomes fresh.
The countertop? Well, we're not sure yet, we have some hopes and dreams of getting a recycled glass countertop, but we are realistic too.
