10 Mid-Century Modern Living Room Tips That Will Change Your Life

We put together the best living room decor tips so that you didn’t need to.

Fall has settled in and there is a home to decorate and get ready for the months to come. The living room is one of the rooms we spend the most of our time in, so it only makes sense that it should be the first room to be redecorated. We have put together some guidelines on how you can create the mid-century modern living room of your dreams…


TREND ALERT! A COMPLETE GUIDE TO THE BEST FALL HOME DECOR AND FASHION TRENDS


1. Start with a strong color palette

Nothing says mid-century home decor like a strong color palette. Colors such as tangerine, avocado, and other dark pastels create a statement look and can easily be paired with neutral colors such as white or gray.

2. Choose good quality furniture

The mid-century modern style is usually associated with Palm Springs. And you will not find a Palm Springs home with bad furniture, that is a given. If you want your living room to look like a mid-century modern paradise, you have to make sure your furniture will stand the test of time.

3. Use a classic mid-century chandelier

Lighting is also a big issue on what concerns a great mid-century living room decor. You can go with a mid-century chandelier over your lounge area and it will stand out and make for a stunning statement piece.

4. Texture is everything

Texture truly is key. One of the most common textures you can find in mid-century living rooms is probably velvet. Not only does it convey a feeling of richness, but it is also a comfortable fabric that makes any sofa look perfect for a movie night!

5. Be size smart

Forget oversized furniture that just clutters up the room. Go for smaller options that will make your living room feel wider and more inviting. Neutral colors also give the impression of more space, so make sure to also take that into account.

6. Get your nature on

A good mid-century modern living room is always in touch with the outdoors. We have talked about this on our Fall decor post last week, and you should definitely embrace Fall and bring a little bit of it indoors.

7. Add a glam element

If there’s a special someone you’re trying to impress, get your glam on and choose a few more luxurious items for your living room. Like a high-quality mid-century lighting design, or a marble side table

8. Set up a reading nook

And because your home should be prepared to embrace the rainy Sunday reading sessions that are to come, you should set up a nice space for your reading time. Get a place with a lot of daylight, that has the perfect sofa or mid-century armchair for you to enjoy the best book.

9. Accessorize!

Accessories can make it or break it. They are what make your living room feel like your living room. You can go with vintage pieces, or go on a shopping spree and choose the accessories that will best mirror who you are as a person.

10. Have fun decorating!

At the end of the day, whether you’re professionally decorating someone else’s living room or your own, the end result will always reflect how much fun you had doing it. And interior design should be just that. It should be fun and challenging!
