Inside an Interior Designer's Light-Filled Midcentury Denver Ranch

When Molly Bevan saw this midcentury California ranch in Denver's Stokes Place neighborhood, she knew that with a little TLC, it would become the perfect home for her family. While adjacent to the city center, this quaint neighborhood was family-friendly and filled with historic ranch homes with large yards and quiet streets. Still, it took a little imagination for the interior designer to see potential through the layers of paint and bad decisions from previous owners—but with a little elbow grease and imagination, her vision shined through.

The  designer had a clear vision to transform this dated space into the welcoming family home she shares with her husband, Terry, and her children, Jack, 7, and Annie, 5. Specifically, she envisioned a light and bright space filled with small pops of color, meaningful art, and treasured vintage pieces in keeping with the home's history. Tour this designer's midcentury sanctuary, and pick up a few tips for your own space.
