    @BuildnShare - there is no review of my entry or @FaithofKaela's? Edit: (or #49 Summer Design Olympics).
    Apologies @bouquetcatcher - I must have somehow missed your entry, my fault entirely! I will remedy this immediately! BTW @FaithofKaela withdrew her entry for this round.

    Thank you for the feed back @BuildnShare and yeah, I may have gone overboard in the backyard (if the lot had been larger, there would have been more :D ) Thank you for the joint win.

    I'm a little confused - I was talking about the summer olympics house - did you withdraw that one @FaithofKaela?

    Expert Results for Challenge #51 - When Modern Was New

    @masajo
    What a gorgeous MCM design you have created for this challenge. The choices you have made for the exterior walls really help nail down the style, as does that wonderful roof line. Your front landscaping is wonderful, you have made great use of the curved decking. I’m glad to see that you got in the children’s play area, flower and veggie gardens! Your planting choices work really well. Your layout inside is lovely, it has a real flow to it, and you have made some really brilliant choices when it comes to furniture and placement. Your first floor is just great, I love the bold colours you have used both in the master suite and in little Fleur’s room. You made great use of flowers throughout the home without going overboard, good job.

    Suggestions: Personally, I think the two separate pools are a little too much in the rear garden, and I think it would have looked a little less disordered had you not had the one between the pergola and the veggie garden, then the climbing frame would have fit in there a treat. I wonder if just another couple of little splashes of colour on the main floor would have made the place look a little more inviting, as it is tit feels a little on the sterile side. It would have been nice to have made some sort of reference to Fleur’s ambition to become an astronaut in her room.


    @StSciurus
    Wow, A Mid Century Modern done on an angle, you don’t get more MCM than that in my book! Your exterior wall treatments complement the style of the build as does the landscaping you have provided. Your layout works really well, especially being a one storey build, it really flows. The objects and placement you have used really helps pinpoint that MCM styling. Those little pops of colour are brilliant and I think that you have made this home personalised to Thierry, Clotilde and Fleur which is wonderful, especially in little Fleur’s room. That children’s play house is inspired, and really well thought out and executed.

    Suggestions: I think the car port stands out a bit too much, I understand that it wouldn’t have fit on the angle and wonder if just a driveway would have blended in better. I would liked to have seen more made of the flower and vegetable garden, those little planters feel a little half-hearted. I wonder if maybe a little more yellow in the master bedroom would have made it perfect for Clotilde, and had you noticed that the siding from the exterior was showing on the inside of the room with the tiered windows? I feel it detracts from the overall feeling of harmony that permeates your build.


    @gmcrozier
    This is such a great example of Mid Century Modern architecture, that slatted roof area with the bamboo is inspired! Great job with Clotilde’s flower garden out the front too! Your interiors look fabulous, your layout works incredibly well and you have made some superb object choices. I am loving that kitchen/diner, it all works so well. That office is just amazing, it’s so light and airy. The guest bedroom is lovely, those soft pinks add some real homeliness to the room. And great use of flowers throughout the home, without making it feel too cluttered.

    Suggestions: Your exterior wall treatments feel a little bland, I wonder if it would have added a little interest had you included some stone in there somewhere. The garage roof doesn’t really seem to fit with the MCM vibe, especially with the open face on the rear. I am curious as to whether or not Flour's room could have been personalised a little more to her, I see no mention of her scientific interest or aspiration to become an astronaut.


    @bouquetcatcher
    What an absolute beauty of a Mid Century Modern build this is, the architecture is spot on, the roofline works really well, and your exterior wall treatments really help nail the style. You have done a great job with the landscaping, nice and modern and clean on the curb, with that wonderful flower garden to the rear. You have made some really great use of the terrain painting tool. Your interior layout works well, and you have made some really spot on object choices. Those splashes of colour really help the home feel modern and vibrant, the perfect blend for an MCM style interior. I adore Fleur’s room, that lime green is spot on and all those little nods to her astronaut aspiration. That piece of MOO with the planter in the dining room table is just perfect, something I’ve never seen before!

    Suggestions: I really struggled to come up with anything I would suggest you could improve on, maybe a couple more pictures of the bathrooms would have been nice to see.


    And the winner is....

You should have seen me removing flowers out back left and right to get it back under budget hehe!! I really wanted more art everywhere. Darn expensive art!! :D
