Eliminating walls in order to achieve the open, airy floor plan that a mid-century home would boast is a great idea when done by a competent team of designers and builders. You could also employ someone to design a huge floor-to-ceiling fireplace made of natural stone (An open floor plan in combination with this fireplace centered in the middle of the room, simply shouts mid-century modern). Or maybe consider something simpler such as adding mirror to your kitchen backsplash or on one wall in your living room.
Unique pendant lights and fixtures are not only functional; they are pieces of sculptural art. There are numerous online artists who custom-make these architectural lights. Look around until you find the piece that calls your name, and remember mid-century modern is not a matchy, matchy style, so no need to find lamp sets. Indeed, bold lighting is another must-have accessory to take your home back in time to this artistic era.
When additional patterns and colors are brought in, a rooms gains depth and dimension. Try to avoid two couches with the same color and pattern, instead have two coordinating patterns, or one with a pattern and one that’s solid. If you do opt for solid colored couches, such as white, add some throw pillows, blankets and rugs to create an opulent palate. The above photo may not be your taste, but is an example of how the use of different colors and textures to pull a space together.
Bold patterns and colors: Retro styling brings together bold patterns and colors into your home. If you enjoy large patterns, try using them on your walls with wallpaper, paint or murals. For the same affect throughout your furniture, consider using bold fabrics and coordinating textiles such as rugs, and window treatments. Try and keep the bold patterns and colors within a few colors for the palette. Too many colors will make your room look scattered, and uninviting.
The history and nostalgia for the mid-century modern movement is not showing signs of withering off into the olden days. On the contrary, it seems the artistry and architectural genius of that time is only becoming more revered. Maybe you will get lucky and land one of these mid-century modern homes hot off the market, but in the meantime, while you’re looking, add some of these above-mentioned style statements to your current home to feel the vibe of days gone by.
