Unfortunately, most of these elusive mid-century jewels have all been purchased (there are only so many left to go around). On the other hand, there are some bonuses to living in our off-the-rack homes with electricity that is up to code. How about we meet in the middle by taking our ready-made home out of its boring box and turn it into a mid-century architectural dream. Here are 10 ways to take your home back in time (without living in a time capsule).
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.
Mid-century homeowners were proud of the craftsmanship of their home and furnishings, and white paint let the rest of the room show off its lines. Small Details Can Make the Difference. Sometimes it’s the simple things added to your decor that make the biggest style statement. One or two artistic metal wall plaques or a large graphic oil on canvas can make a bold style statement. For a modern look, don’t clutter your walls with tons of artwork.
