Carefree California: Cliff May and the Romance of the Ranch House
This landmark volume is an authoritative,
richly illustrated examination of the origins, evolution, and influence of the
California ranch house. Carefree California looks at a legendary figure in
Southern California design, Cliff May, and the ubiquitous domestic icon his name
evokes, the ranch house. We also see how other architects—from George Washington
Smith to Rudolph Schindler—pursued different paths toward the same kind of
relaxed domesticity exemplified by the ranch house.By the late ’50s, much of the
world was fascinated with California living and with the ranch house in
particular, which derived from architects’ evocation and reworking of
distinctive regional traditions, allied with the pervasive romance and myths of
the California frontier, and from the cultivation of a domestic architecture
that could serve distinctively Californian ways of carefree living. By
uncovering patterns for living that suited the automobile age among the almost
archaic forms and rhythms of mission and pioneer dwellings, an extraordinary
range of modernism emerged that was at once grounded in history and soaring into
the space age.
1964 Ranch House
Some original details from the ranch house in
Alleghany County, Virginia, in which I grew up. My parents had it built in
1963/1964. Pendant lamp in the original bathroom (we had just the one for the
four of us up until my sister and I were adults and had moved out; only years
later did my parents add two extra baths!). The lamp and mirror are original,
though the wallpaper was added much later.

If you grew up in postwar America, chances are
you lived in or next to a ranch-style house. And the things we loved about
ranches when we liked Ike are still attractive—perhaps more so—today: the
liberation that comes with open-plan living, the casual feel of easy kitchen
access, the comfort of having bedrooms and children near at hand, the
convenience of one-level living, and the everyday luxury of smooth
indoor-outdoor flow. So it’s no surprise that the ranch is in style again—and
this book showcases the best of it. Whether that style is the mid-century modern
of Corbusier and the Eameses, or the cross-cultural awareness of the sixties, or
the Pop Art and plastic of the seventies, Ranch House Style offers inspiration
and instruction on re-creating these looks in your own home.
book isn’t just for style mavens with professional decorators. Because if
there’s any one completely American, democratic architectural style, it’s the
ranch house. Ranches, in all their glory (and sometimes utter lack of it), are
everywhere, usually affordable, just waiting for the right shag carpet to
restore their hipness, the right flea-market find to liven up that patio. And
Ranch House Style shows how—with examples of the ranch’s flexibility for any
decorating style, from Victorian and French Country to thoroughly contemporary,
from primary homes in the suburbs to vacation getaways on the shore, from
vintage gems to newly built originals. It also shows how to solve the special
challenges that come with one-story living in a decades-old house, including how
to expand into today’s more spacious footprints, how to renovate for modern
amenities, and how best to use the ranch’s typically large plot of
Remarkably, there hasn’t been a book on ranches available in
decades. Despite the millions that exist across the entire country, the ranch
has been ignored by the high-design community. To address that insult to ranch
lovers, Ranch House Style also includes thoroughly researched, authoritative
material on the style’s history, sociological context, architects, designers,
and furniture. This is a serious work that stands alone in its field, in
addition to being a beautiful, inspirational, and practical decorating book.
So come visit the ranch—both the remarkably familiar and the strikingly
original, from modest to luxurious, in styles from charming to mod—available in
neighborhoods everywhere, here showing in all its coolness.
