Mid-Century Modern Idea Homes

This September 1958 cover of Better Homes and Garden has some gorgeous illustrations of mid-century homes, done by Jan Balet. All of these "idea homes of the year" have an amazing design and I really like the blue house/yellow door mid-century modern color palette. Plus, the design on that station wagon is amazing.

I wish I could find a copy so I could check out the "New interior colors." Plus, that "What does a woman do all day?" article has to be good for a laugh.
