Bring Wood Back. Most of today’s furniture is made of engineered pressed wood. Let real wood take center stage via the high-quality furnishings of the 50’s. These mid-century masterpieces have clean lines of teak, walnut, oak and rosewood. Maybe hunting for these old pieces seems like too much work. Or maybe a George Nelson or Noguchi piece is out of your budget. If so, there are plenty of modern-made replicas to be found that mimic these elements.
When it comes to small living room ideas, the common theme is that less is more, both in the colors you choose for your walls and the furniture that fills the space. Oversized furniture can make an already small room feel even more cramped, and change a space with a lot of potential to a space you can’t wait to exit. Likewise, overly vibrant paint colors can make your walls look like they are closing in on your room.
Add sleek stainless steel and marble to countertop surfaces, and consider cork or laminate flooring. Overall, keep the lines in your kitchen clean, simple and uncluttered. Paint – White Is Right. Most mid-century homes had walls covered in white paint. Why? Because it allowed for the high-quality furnishings to take center stage. What an easy mid-century design solution! Homeowners in this time period loved their bold, graphic prints.
Instead, aim for a light and airy feel, with smaller or more delicate-looking furniture, and emphasize light and bright through neutral hues, lots of natural light and mirrors to create the illusion of extra space. Wicker or Victorian-era wooden furniture can instantly open a small space. Light blues and yellows can make a cramped space seem larger, and less bric-a-brac on your tables and walls can create an uncluttered and hospitable design.
Every twenty to thirty years, the world of design seems to make a comeback, but in a slightly better way. Whether it’s is the world of fashion, colors or home decor, retro style is an eclectic mix of old styles and new forms, or new forms with old materials and finishes. From the psychedelic prints of the seventies to the fifties appeal of oversized light fixtures and bubbly forms, retro style home decor is back in a big way! Here are a few ways to get the look in your modern home.
