My Houzz: Designer Opens Up Her Midcentury Home in Tulsa. A creative owner turns an outdated Oklahoma ranch house into an industrial-style light box

Rachel Andersen grew up flipping homes with her family. She’s always loved building, designing and renovating, so when she stumbled upon this midcentury home, at the tender age of 21, she couldn’t wait to get her hands on it and begin the renovation process. The home was built in the 1950s by a local architect and is in a beautiful historic neighborhood in Tulsa, Oklahoma. “The midcentury style was a perfect fit for me. I didn’t want to mess with the character of the style; I just wanted to enhance it throughout the renovation,” she says. “I worked on the design with my brother and sister-in-law, and I still love the collaborative finished product to this day.”

Andersen is a talented graphic designer and musician who also runs an online shop, Unanchored Studio, where she sells handmade wall weavings. “When I’m not working, you can typically find me doing some sort of DIY build, whether at my home or a friend’s house,” she says. “I was born in Tulsa, but my family moved away when I was barely a toddler. I came back seven years ago and have loved each second of it!”
