Atomic Ranch

Do you dream of a mid-century modern home with an open floor plan, glass walls and an interior garden courtyard? Do you fantasize about vintage bubble lamps and Eames lounge chairs? Atomic Ranch, a quarterly publication and accompanying Web site, is the perfect resource for the renovation, retro décor and relaxed lifestyle associated with the forward-thinking ranch homes of the late 1940s and 1950s. It reads like a middle-class Architectural Digest crossed with a retro-centric Sunset. Articles focus on homeowners’ stylish houses, along with features about mid-century accessories such as electronics, cars and fashion. The Web site links to advertisers selling period furniture, fabric, appliances and carpets, as well as real-estate agents and architects specializing in the back-to-the-future marvels.
