Updating ranch style home interior
Q My husband and I have been living in our ranch home since the 1970s, and we are finally ready to do some upgrading to make it a little more current. The earth-hugging prairie-style houses pioneered by Frank Lloyd Wright and the popular California bungalow styles paved the way for the ranch.
The informal ranch style evolved from several 20th century styles.
This should get you started with some key modifications that can add character, charm and curb appeal to your ranch-style home.
And we love to travel, so occasionally you’ll see a few photos from some of places we’ve visited. Currently it’s decorated for fall, but will get changed in a few weeks. Today, I am sharing our 1960’s ranch style home tour. I’ve admired and followed her blog for years and am so honored to be sharing my home with her and you.Thanks so much for having my home on your tour, Debbie!
