Tips to help you incorporate mid-century style

Tips to help you incorporate mid-century style

Mid-century style is definitely a way of living your home with a retro vibe. With the right know-how, modern apartment decorating can turn even the most outmoded living space into something fresh and inviting.

Here are a few general tips to help you create a modern look:

Paint your walls white

 There are few things more integral to modern design than white-painted walls (or at least solid, neutral ones). White walls allow attention to be drawn to other features, such as furniture and decorations, while still maintaining an clean, uncluttered atmosphere. Of course, as with any changes you might wish to make to the apartment, before painting any of your walls, you’ll need to first get permission from your property manager.

Invest in unique light fixtures

While many aspects of modern design should be unassuming and simple, lighting does not have to be. Mid-century modern light fixtures can be attention grabbing, unique, and even downright strange looking. Pendant lights are especially well suited to contemporary design, and can help your apartment achieve a look that says modern rather than boring.

Use wood where possible

Particle board furniture may be inexpensive, but remember that natural materials are the favored choice of modern designers. As such, investing in real, carved wood furnishings can really bring everything together. If real wood is out of the question, consider purchasing pieces that mimic the look of carved wood, while still retaining the low cost of conventional materials.

Leave your windows uncovered

For many modern apartment decorating ideas, budgetmay seem like a major obstacle. Fortunately, there are some general tips that won’t cost you much at all. In keeping with the idea of merging home and nature, remove the drapes, blinds, and any other coverings that might be blocking your windows. This will open up your living space, allow more light into your apartment, and help showcase the clean lines of your overall design.

Combine neutral colors with bright ones

Between the white walls, wood furniture, and abundance of bright sunlight, you may find that your living space takes on a very neutral look. This is perfect, as long as you aren’t afraid to add a bit of color here and there. Select a few bright, bold colors, and incorporate them into your overall design as accents. This can be done with pillows, artwork, or even simple area rugs. Try to avoid overly complex designs, but the occasional flourish is OK.
