By turning the room upside down (stripes on ceiling), designer Karen Wolf created a focal point, leading to the giant window showcasing the star of the room -Dwell Studios “Brushed Dot” fabric with peacock and yellow polka dots.
The clean, modern cabinets have beechwood surrounds, plywood back boxes and feature soft-close. The cabinet hardware has the look of weathered copper with a blue-green verdigris patina. Antique inspiration is behind the kitchen island, which is clad in a cold-rolled steel wrapped around a plywood substrate for a smooth and durable work surface.
Blissfully unafraid of color, this bachelor pad living room sings out with energy and life thanks to lemon yellow curtains (that reach floor to ceiling, no less), sky blue armchairs and a zippy black-and-white rug.
Multicolored Midcentury Living Room With Gallery Wall
An eclectic grouping of artwork creates a colorful gallery wall in this midcentury living room and also pairs nicely with the rug. Neutral and wood furnishings help ground the space and prevent the design from feeling too busy.
Mid-century Modern Living Room Neutral Hardwood Floors
As seen on Home Town, the Walker's Laurel, MS existing living room was cold and uninviting with a dark stain on the existing wood floor and a solid entry door allowing minimal light into the large open space. After the renovations, their Laurel, MS living room now gives the feeling of being wide open and flows nicely from the full glass entry door into the living and dining areas. The living room features the original refinished hardwood floor, new curtains, and blind, updated furnishings and custom art designed by Mia's younger son Bryce. Host Erin Napier said the floors had to be sanded three times to get the old dark stain completely removed to allow the natural color of the wood to show again.
Vintage transportation-themed black and white photos make a creative gallery wall above the changing table. In the corner of the nursery, a cozy armchair and soft pouf stand at the ready to cuddle parents and baby.
The entry of Chris' condo is a mash-up of classic menswear and midcentury modern styles. A black, silver and gold pinstripe wallpaper from Graham & Brown covers the walls while a brass helix-style chandelier purchased for $200 from a flea market lights the space.
Two stylistically different backsplashes are used in the vintage-inspired kitchen. Behind the stove are teal-blue vertical tiles extending to the ceiling, while the adjacent wall features dark gray penny-round and is finished with bone white grout to accent the shape of the tiles.
Bold, Colorful Wallpaper in Vintage-Inspired Kitchen
Multi-hued wallpaper in a leaf pattern picks up on the yellow cabinet fronts. The custom dry-bar provides extra counter space as well as place to store and display liquor. It's clad in oak wood that was salvaged from wood pallets then run through a planer to give it a smooth finish. Free-hanging steel shelves hanging above the bar are ideal for displaying glassware as well as some of vintage collectibles.
