Talkin' 'bout my generation...

Douglas Coupland, the author of Generation X and Microserfs renovated a midcentury house in Vancouver, British Columbia, that is technically be called a second home, even though it sits directly behind his primary residence. He restored the home in all its glory complete with midcentury antiques and art installations.
