Shirley maintained the home’s ’60s retro style by revamping some of the home’s original pieces, but modernized the space with contemporary finishes. The result is an open-concept space that feels bright and mod. Statement paintings and artwork dress up the dark walls, adding a cool vibe to the vintage meets contemporary aesthetic.
