All the joy of renovating our house without lifting more than a clicking finger.
Desire to make Atomic Indy more interactive. No longer just readers. Join in our mid century modern renovation fun.
Several posts back left you with stained birch wood panels lying on basement floor. Panels have since been installed. Questions of how they integrate with overall direction began to arise. Come and play.
Below are three options. Some quick dirty Photoshop to illustrate point.
1. Stained birch currently installed
2. Flooring continued up inside of island
3. Sand it down and paint it orange
Your choices are simple:
1. “Leave the birch”
2. “I dig the floor idea”
3. “I have a thing for orange”
4. “You've got it all wrong - I'll leave a comment”
The results of this survey will help shape Atomic Indy.

Don’t steer us wrong.
Have had several request for additional images to offer more context. Bear in mind this is an extensive renovation therefore context is evolutionary and undefined. Island filler may aid in such definitions. Have included additional perspectives below. Each requires explanation.
Disregard wall colors. We have not yet begun to paint. Example of aforementioned undefined context.
View back to shoot location of original image (looking to the right from behind island).
Table and chairs will have rug with which to rest upon. Chair cushions will also be replaced. Context can be created in such textiles.

Space behind doors will be closed off and opened up on other side. Wood doors are stand-in representations of birch wood panels. Spending a couple weeks living with what it might be like to take context of birch throughout. Each panel would have aluminum reveal between. Option to put up drywall instead still exists. Note celestory windows above have been covered over. Will return these to glass, allowing natural light to enter office.
View from couch back to kitchen.
Glimpse of how birch context could carry through. Wood panel along left back wall is representation of floating shelving currently drawn up in my head. Stools will be refinished in white.
These images explore the birch context. This is not intended to sway votes. Merely our attempt to get a sense of how one of the options could be carried through.
