“Mid-century modern” was an architecture, interior and industrial design movement that was in place in the States around the middle of the 20thcentury. Sleek and timeless, mid-century modern is quite rightly considered a classic look, to the extent that it is still emulated and referenced in new homes built today. In fact, many contemporary housebuilders are influenced by the mid-century modern style and it is becoming increasingly common to find mid-century modern homes for sale. In this blog we’ll be giving a few interior design tips to complement mid-century modern homes.

You may want to go full-on mid-century modern with every piece of furniture, lamp and ornament in the room, but in fact one of the advantages of the style is that the simple and organic shapes blend in very well with pieces from other styles or periods; mid-century modern rarely clashes with other pieces.  

You can be as conservative or bold with color as you choose – the mid-century modern style encapsulated colors from across the spectrum, and varied throughout the period. Bright reds and other colors were popular in the Fifties, but by the Sixties more muted, earthy colors and pastels became more popular. Choose the palette that best suits your tastes. It often makes sense to stick to a more limited range of colors in any one room, but at the same time the simplicity of mid-century modern lends itself to a little more boldness, for example a room mostly done out in pastel colors but with a bright pop of color – a bright red lamp, say – in one corner.

Another benefit of mid-century modern spaces – again, due to the simplicity of the designs – is that they lend themselves to accessorizing. Obviously you will want to avoid clutter – there’s no point in choosing a mid-century modern style home then cluttering it up with unnecessary stuff! That said, classy accessories such as plants, floor pillows, rocks or stylish candlestick holders can successfully accessorize this type of home design.

A final tip for mid-century modern style interior design is to incorporate furniture of varying heights. For example, you can opt to have a low sofa and a low coffee table, but counter this by incorporating a tall credenza and an arc lamp to provide contrast and complete the space.
