Find out the principal elements of mid-century modern design and how to use them in your home!
Bring the outside in by using nature patterns in your walls to give depth and a natural freshness to a room, or simply allow light to enter your house, keep open spaces in your rooms, and add a plant or two to the mix. You’ll find yourself more relaxed and in touch with nature from the comfort of your home.
Wood has got to be one of the most used materials in mid-century modern homes. It’s simple but brings the best out of nature inside your home and takes the edge off the sharp lines of this style that will be represented in other pieces. Don’t be afraid to add some exposed wood into your living room and combine it with different materials to keep your space harmonious.
Metal gives you the shine your space needs. From brass to cobber, don’t forget to add the metallic accents your home needs. From mirrors to lighting, be bold but keep in mind to mix this with other materials and colors.
Velvet is the perfect material to combine with anything in your home. Not only does it bring the retro vibe into any space, but it also provides comfort and focus to the piece, never forgetting the timeless aspect of it.
Of course, your home isn’t complete with some kind of abstract or geometric element to it, so be sure to add abstract art or a geometric rug to complete the look of your space. It will bring more life to it, as well as structure the entire style of your room.
