Welcome to the Herron House, a 1957 mid-century modern residence in Venice, Florida. Designed by Victor Lundy, an architect more famous for his church and embassy designs, the Herron House recently finished going through a top to bottom restoration.
Ursula kohl and Peter Bartos, the new owner of the house who, much to the surprise of the neighbors, undertook the restoration rather than demolishing this classic example of Sarasota Modernism..
From removing the glued-down carpeting to installing built-in wardrobes, the restoration had many remarkable aspects. One of which was removing the white paint from the wood structure. Though it may be hard to believe that much of the wood structure was painted white, it was. Thankfully all that paint is gone, so all of that wood can infuse the space with warmth and character.
