Mid Century Ranch Shines Bright with Nordic Style Updates

Renovating this mid century ranch in Atlanta into a light filled dream was a labor of love for  designer Brian Patrick Flynn. Inspired by modern Nordic style and a huge art collection, the homeowners updated the interior to play up the original modern architectural details. 

Lots of glass and vaulted ceilings give the ranch an open, inviting feeling, while a rich color palette and unique vintage finds add a cozy vibe, making it an inspiring place to play or work.

An Art Deco inspired light fixture and warm woods add sophistication and glamour to this lovely home office. Even if each piece is from a different period, due to similar wood tones, the overall look is unified. Helping the room feel brighter and larger, the homeowners chose to keep the mirrored closet doors.
