SWINGIN PAD: Atomic Ranch Magazine

Look, I'm young, so go easy on me when I admit that only a little more than a year ago did I learn the term "Mid-Century Modern." I was rounding a magazine rack at the Borders at Clark & Diversey in Chicago, when a floor stack of Atomic Ranch Magazine made me halt in my tracks. It was one of those moments where I find myself whispering aloud "what is thatttt?!" with the realization in the back of my mind that this is a miniscule life-changing moment.

This magazine can be tricky to locate at bookstores, but when I'm in the mood for it, I will dig through Budget Living and ReadyMade even for a back issue. So now I know that Mid-Century Modern is my idealllll. I WANT that driveway pictured above, and I WANT a huge print by Shag in my den (ok, I already knew and loved Shag), and I CRAVE colorful ball chairs and floor pouffs like nobody's business. Now, how to translate all this to the interior of my future yacht...
