Atomic Ranch: Design Ideas for Stylish Ranch HomesAtomic Ranch: Design Ideas for Stylish Ranch Homes

Atomic Ranch is an in-depth exploration of post-World War II residential
architecture in America. Mid-century ranches (1946-1970) range from the
decidedly modern gable-roofed Joseph Eichler tracts in the San
Francisco Bay area and butterfly wing houses in Palm Springs, Florida,
to the unassuming brick or stucco L-shaped ranches and split-levels so
common throughout the United States. Authors Michelle Gringeri-Brown and
Jim Brown, founders and publishers of the popular quarterly Atomic
Ranch magazine, extol the virtues of the tract, split-level, rambler
home and its many unique qualities: private front facades, open floor
plans, secluded bedroom wings, walls of glass, and an easy-living
lifestyle. From updated homes with high-end Italian kitchens, terrazzo
floors, and modern furniture to affordable homeowner renovations with
eclectic thrift-store furnishings, Atomic Ranch presents twenty-five
homes showcasing inspiring examples of stylish living through beautiful
color photographs, including before and after shots, design-tip
sidebars, and a thorough resource index.
