Mid-Century Modern LOS ANGELES Covered Patio Style, Yellow, Orange, Blue

Yellow and Orange: Perfectly Combined

This is one of our favorite mid-century modern photographs by the hand of Julius Shulman. We love the color compositions from that time: yelow and orange with some blue thrown in.  Almost feels like a composition in the manner of 'De Stijl' and Piet Mondrian. Nicely done in a way that seems to be difficult to repeat today somehow. 

The recreation pavillion at the Mirman House. Designed by Buff, Straub & Hensman Architects in Arcadia, California, 1958. Not sure if this house is still standing right now...
