A Peek Inside Kyle Ragsdale’s Home

I was very excited when one of my friends told me yesterday that Kyle Ragsdale’s home was featured in the Indy Star yesterday.

If you’ve read my blog before you’d know that Kyle Ragsdale is not only one of my favorite local artist but one of my favorite artist. Ragsdale is an artist and curator of the Harrison Center for the Arts.

Kyle Ragsdale and his wife live in Fountain Square. When an open lot came available they built a home in their favorite architectural style which is mid century modern, which is very different from the foursquares, bungalows and Victorians in the neighborhood.

They chose something contemporary to show off their furniture, collectibles and of course their ever changing collection of artwork.

The draw to Fountain Square is it is not a historic district which gives them the freedom to do whatever they want. Their house is easy to find, it’s turquoise blue and has a corrugated plastic roof.

Inside the home the walls are white and the floors a neutral bamboo. This makes the perfect backdrop for their vintage sofas and chairs, lady lamps, beverage coolers, record cabinet and school chairs.

Another cool feature of the house is that it has no baseboards which make the walls appear to float. The art in the house includes representational, paint-by-numbers, abstract, photography and other media.

His house is as cool as I imagined it would be don’t you think?

  1. I really like the “no baseboards look” — awesome. Would like to try that but the local contractor may think I’m crazy – ha!

    • I thought that idea was great too, never in a million years did I think of no baseboards, I’ve always thought extra large baseboards but the look is really cool!!
