Midcentury Modern Open-Plan Living and Dining Space
Perfect for casual weekend living, this Hamptons beach-house dining/family room has a close connection to the kitchen, as well as to outdoor living areas. Glass doors on the ground level slide all the way into the walls, opening the family/dining room and living room to an expansive deck area. The rooms can be entirely open or protected from mosquitoes with a screen system, allowing for summer breezes, ample entertaining areas and restoring connections to nature. “A consistent — but not overwhelming — thread of blue follows throughout these ground level spaces: blue kitchen cabinets, blue custom rug and touches of blue walls,” note the architects.
To create a welcoming space in this townhouse, designers used a base palette of white and serene blue, layered with yellow and gray accents. Accessories like the lamp and abstract painting add fun personality. A marble top was a simple way to customize the store-bought coffee table. Lamp: Marset floor lamp
Decorative Gold Light Fixture Over Wood Dining Table and Midcentury Modern Black Dining Chairs
A bright gold light fixture is the focal point of this stylish dining room design. The dining table features a light, natural wood finish complimenting the neutral, beige tone of the walls and patterned rug. Black upholstered chairs create a nice color contrast without overpowering the design.
Artistic Midcentury Modern Dining Room With Wallpaper Plate Wall and Tall-Back Head Dining Chair
A charcoal gray pattern wallpaper creates depth in this dining room design and allows the decorative white plates to pop. A long light fixture with crystal fringe runs parallel to the wood dining table. A high-back neutral chair at the head of the table faces the curtain-covered sliding glass door.
Gray-Green Home Office Sitting Area With Gallery Wall
To create a multifunctional seating area in an attorney’s home office, designer Tim Barber chose a flexible mix of vintage and reproduction pieces. “For a room versatile enough to prepare a brief, host tea with friends, steer fundraising projects, help with homework and occasionally accommodate overflow guests, we designed a plan with pieces light enough to be moved easily — and durable enough to survive frequent rearranging (nothing too precious here),” he says. “The sofa is a Lino Comfort sleeper from Design Within Reach, which makes the office a convertible guest bedroom in a pinch. We love the deep seat cushions and low flat arms: perfect for a power nap. The chairs are vintage 1957 Knoll Saarinen armchairs, reupholstered in Kravet fabric. The Saarinen cocktail table is a reproduction from Room & Board.”
This midcentury modern living room adds depth to its neutral palette with a graphic print rug and a mix of unique textures and shapes, like the multifaceted end tables, glass coffee table and low-hung pendants.
A wash of blue—in varying shades—and simple, elegant midcentury furniture makes this living room so welcoming and stylish. Along the back wall, an open shelving unit in white provides lots of storage while keeping the mood airy and light.
Midcentury Modern Sitting Room Features Built-In Workspace
At the other end of this midcentury modern sitting room, a built-in desk and bookshelves provide an unassuming space for reading and working. A plush gray area rug below coordinates well with the stormy ceiling, tying the sensible, cool-toned look together.
Midcentury Modern Sitting Room Features Marbled Ceiling
With matching armchairs, a plush chaise lounge and a Sputnik-style light fixture, this neutral sitting room brings midcentury modern design into the present. Overhead, an elegant marbled ceiling creates visual interest and encourages quiet reflection.
Berber Rug in Midcentury Modern Living Room Ties Space Together
With the large, open plan of this room, designers wanted to make sure it felt like a home instead of an art gallery, so they added a berber rug to soften the space and tie together the furniture and the art.
Mid-Century Modern Kitchen From Sarah Sees Potential
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, this once cramped and dated kitchen and dining area was transformed into a chic, mid-century style space. Designer Sarah Richardson upcycled thrift store chairs by dipping the legs in chrome and reupholstering the seats. Keeping with the vintage theme, Sarah installed mid-century modern light fixtures and added bright pops of color throughout the neutral space. The owner's original artwork hangs above a custom banquette to complete the look.
