Contemporary design seems to rock my boat but the classic look exudes comfort
Going on tours of homes and checking out magazines, contemporary design always catches my eye. But when I want to sit back and enjoy my home, I seem to lean toward a somewhat classic style that is in keeping with the original design of the home. I think it’s because I love to add my own personality to my surroundings and that is much easier to do in a classic setting
Hanley Towers was built in the mid 1960’s and each unit shows some signs of the mid century modern that was part of that decade. It is fifteen stories and the units overlook downtown Clayton, Forest Park, and you can see the Arch from many of the units. As you enter each unit your eye is immediately drawn to the wall of windows across the expansive living room and dining room area which is 33×16 in Unit 12E. The view in Unit 12E is to the south and the space is light and bright.
The owner of this fabulous unit maintained it’s classic mid century design when she updated it a few years ago. The kitchen has new cabinets, solid surface counters and stainless appliances. As you can see she left plenty of room to add her personal touches. The updated kitchen is a classic style that transcends trends.
The living room/dining room is so great for stylish entertaining. The current owner put in all new thermal windows, added a fireplace and refinished the parquet floors (original to the building). Many of the owners of units in this building were downsizing when they bought here but still wanted to entertain in the grand style of their larger homes. It is easy in these units because all of the rooms are very spacious. Unit 12E is being offered for sale at $220,000
