Over the last three years, a couple restored their midcentury home almost entirely with their own hands.
Built by Joseph Eichler, the home was designed by A. Quincy Jones and Frederick Emmons. While bringing the home back to its former glory, the family with two children also made some modern updates. Karen Nepacena and John Shum upgraded the kitchen with an island, which was built in the couple’s backyard, with custom Walnut cabinetry by Semihandmade Doors from IKEA around it.
A Nelson Saucer Pendant Lamp by George Nelson hangs over the dining table with Eames Molded Plastic armchairs to compliment the surrounding set of chairs.
Glass walls divide up the spaces throughout the home.
Materials original to classic Eichler homes such as interior wood paneling, aluminum sliding doors, glass walls, and VCT flooring were restored.
The renovated bathroom features tiles from Heath Ceramics.
