Home of the Day: Midcentury rambler in Altadena


Bright tones, ornate details and walls of glass enliven the interiors of this updated Atomic Ranch-style residence in Altadena. The living room, with built-in bookshelves on either wall, centers on a classic midcentury fireplace, which also serves as an accent wall in the adjacent dining room. Off of the owner’s suite, a private deck is shaded by tall Deodar cedars.
