A realtor from Tsawwassen (south of Vancouver, Canada) sent me the listing to a renovated mid-century modern home that is currently for sale.

As a big fan of mid-century architecture, I enjoyed seeing these photos. But I thought it was particularly interesting to view the contrast between daytime and nighttime pictures.

Have a look…

Normally I don’t like when realtors take photographs at night or twilight – I like to see FULL on sun in listing photos because light is important to my mental health. But the drama of this home seems to be compounded at night!

This 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom rancher is listed for $829,900. The décor is sparse and retro.

Double glazed floor-to-ceiling windows and exposed ceiling beams are some of the noteworthy features…

The minimalist furniture fits perfectly with this mod home.

Apart from the funky wallpaper, you can really see the exposed cinder block walls – a tad reminiscent of my dorm room days in university!

But the listing photos go beyond day and night lighting contrasts… there is also some photo editing *magic* in the backyard shots.

This is the actual backyard:

Neat huh?

This gave me the idea to Photoshop a dishwasher into the listing photos of my kitchen – that might at least get more lookers in the door!  🙂
