Layering color & prints.

Layering color and print is an acquired skill, and we love how effortlessly it’s done by @hilarymarconetto in this corner of her home. This room has touches of Mid-Century Modernist and Artful Eclectic aesthetics, and is a great example of how these can layer together to create a cohesive look. Does this room capture your taste?

Uniquely You: Mid Century Modernist

Mid Century Modern design was driven by the sharp geometric angles, bright colors, and clean modern lines showing up in homes in the 40s-60s. It’s style has proven to be timeless, as it’s undeniable charm and aesthetic has gained popularity in recent years, Mid Century Modernists who feel a connection to that era can get their fix of retro decor without having to seek out expensive collectors items.

You’ll often find wood paneling and furniture in Mid Century Modernists’ homes. Wooden credenzas, table tops, shelving, any expansive surface that can be covered in a high-quality oak or walnut probably will be.

Mid Century Modern furniture tends to have simple, modern lines with emphasized curves and angles. Plain front cabinets, pedestal tables, and organic-shaped seating may line the rooms of a Mid Century Modernist’s house.

Often, Mid Century Modern spaces will have one clear color “mood” or feature decor vignettes that give a space a decisive attitude. Patterned wallpaper and fun lamps that provide lighting to both fit and create an ambiance help to give each room a story.

Bright “retro”-style color came into the spotlight with this style which is why a lot of vibrant, spunky people gravitate toward Mid Century Modern design. Mid Century Modernists make room for chaos and calm.

With flat-lined roofs and expansive walls popping up in architecture around the 60s, furniture and decor became the platform for inventive curvilinears and angularity. Mid Century Modernists today appreciate the playful, organic silhouettes found in Mid Century TV stands, tables, and chairs today.

Mid Century Modernists exercise a lot of restraint in letting their spaces do most of the work and leaving room for their furniture to breathe. Open concept floorplans and conservative decor allow for light to find its way to the center of the space and a feeling of interconnectivity to wash over the whole home.
