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.

In preparation for our party, however, we were busy trying to get some projects completed. Here are the much overdue updates:
My World Market Konrad desk and Riley bookcases did not really go with the style of the house (they had been a perfect fit for our other house). So we ended up going to and LD talked me into purchasing a walnut table top from the Room and Board Outlet. We bought legs and a drawer kit from Ikea, and we ended up assembling a one of a kind desk that fits the room much better. We also bought some Gallery bookshelves from the Room and Board Outlet.
I celebrated my birthday in September, and LD bought me the chair that I fell in love with the first time I saw it at Room and Board.
Hmmm, something about my birthday and chairs (last year she bought me an Eames shell rocker).
