The living room inside this 1840's row home features large ceilings with wooden beams and hardwood flooring. Midcentury modern furniture and bold artwork were added to create an eclectic, but timeless design.
Midcentury modern furniture pairs with Cape Cod-style architecture to create this stylish yet classic outdoor living space. A bold red-orange lantern adds a vibrant splash of color and personality to the space.
Bright, lively colors establish a fun, creative office space in this impeccably designed home. Midcentury modern furniture pieces bring vintage personality to the space, and deep green carpet adds another vintage-inspired touch.
Funny how as the years pass, older styles become ageless rather than looking dated. If you go with a look that has at least 50 years under its belt — say, midcentury modern — it won’t go stale, says designer Tatiana Machado-Rosas of Jackson Design and Remodeling. For the backdrop, it’s smart to create a simple and versatile setting: here, the clean lines of the fireplace and the neutral tones of the flooring allow the period furnishings to make the statement (and allow you to change your mind down the road).
A smart layout with architectural elements divide this open-plan kitchen into distinct zones. Saarinen Tulip chairs at the cantilevered breakfast table add a midcentury touch while dashes of brilliant color prevent the swaths of white from feeling too sterile.
White painted brick and natural light from large windows brings a lightness around the open floor plan of this New York City loft. The hardwood floor finish compliments the natural wood support beams that create a natural room separation. Low furniture accents the height of the ceiling, and the lime green on the midcentury sofa adds a pop of color outside the neutral color scheme.
The clean white design of this reading nook creates a calm place to sit and relax. A graphic rug breaks up the stark coloring. A retro-inspired chair with a matching ottoman is decorated with a Fornasetti pillow, and a panel of abstract art adds yellow to the design for a pop of bright color.
The warm navy, cream and raspberry colors in this living room work together to create an inviting midcentury modern look. The cream shag rug grounds the space, and windows treatments make the room feel more intimate.
Expansive windows in this space add plenty of warm, natural light, making the space inviting. However, these windows didn't always make the space cozy, so designers added new silk drapes to block morning sun. New wood furniture was added to the space, the clean lines giving this master bedroom a modern feel, which was softened by the addition of new bedding and a Persian rug. The ceiling was painted green to give the space depth, while modern art was added to give personality to this mater bedroom.
To bring warmth to the foyer, designers combined vintage pieces of furniture with modern art. This makes the space welcoming, but also connects the design to that of the living room. Antique horses on either side of the door usher guests into the home.
The rick natural tones of the exterior wood brings warmth to offset the cool tones of the furniture. A light gray sofa and two cream arm chairs face into an Asian coffee table. A large floor lamp features a small built in shelf around the base. A graphic rug pattern adds a darker hue to the design and softens the lounge space over the stone tile floor.
The wood exterior of this midcentury modern home frames this courtyard space giving it privacy while allowing it to still feel open and spacious. Wood furniture is arranged to form a sitting space and an outdoor dining set up over the pressed gravel floor. Plant life adds natural texture and color to decorate.
A neutral area rug pads the open floor space in this comfy living room set up. Neutral arm chairs and a gray-brown sectional turn in toward the fireplace and mounted TV. A white topped coffee table pulls the white of the fireplace surround into the room and highlights the midcentury modern design inspiration.
The open floor plan creates a spacious and airy feel throughout this home. A blue area rug brings a pop of color positioned by a sleek sofa and a pair of leather bucket chairs. A brick chimney and faux fur footstools bring beautiful texture to the design. Intriguing midcentury modern chandeliers hang through the room filling the high ceiling space.
