When the couple purchased the classic midcentury modern house five years ago, it was in a strange state. The former owners, art lovers themselves, had an affinity for Southwestern plein air landscapes and had installed dark paneled walls and heavy timber furniture throughout the house. “It was a style that you are more likely to see on the East Coast,” says Guetzlaff. “I thought, Why would you buy this house to do that?” The one perk? The track lighting throughout the home would work well with Meister and Siegel’s art collection, although it was of a very different nature.
