Colorful Kid's Space in Midcentury Modern Family Room
This corner of the family room was made for entertaining the little ones with books and toys. The daughters are fun-loving, creative and artistic, so the designers wanted to give them a vibrant space that incorporated just the right amount of color, pattern and natural texture.
The pendants in the foyer were carefully chosen both to stand up to the scale of the high ceilings and seamlessly mesh with the home's midcentury modern roots. The artwork on the back wall is made up of yarn-like designs that add depth to the space.
Metallic and Contrasting Neutral Midcentury Modern Foyer
In the entry of the home, designers chose to use colors that would acclimate guests to the home's bold metallic and contrasting neutral color palette. The artwork does exactly that, adding glam to the space without detracting from the apartment's beautiful views. Patterned wallpaper with a three-dimensional quilted effect was selected to envelop the space, while large scale, gold-leaf lamps sit on a console which emulates the wallpaper patter. To finish the space, designers hung a glass, Rod Sputnik chandelier for a spectacular statement upon entering the home.

Midcentury Modern Details in Open, Bright Hall With Hardwood Floor, Thin Wall Table and White Brick Chimney
Keeping this hall section uncluttered accentuates the spacious, light look of the open floor plan. A dark wood, thin wall table pops against the white wall and matches the exposed beam visible on the ceiling. A simple tabletop display adds just enough personal touch without overpowering the fresh look of the home. A patterned, textured carpet sets a cozy outline for an in-floor fireplace lounge.
Dark Front Door, Glass Wall Table and Square Lamp Shade Sconces Over Hardwood Floor Entryway
A simple glass table is dressed with coffee table books, a candle, vases and fresh flowers for a thoughtful entryway display. A circular mirror creates a cool depth illusion with the changing of the frame thickness. Sconce with square lamp shades frame the mirror for a subtle shape contrast. The dark front door is well lit from the lighting fixture mounted above.
The screen in this midcentury modern living room rests at the bottom of the stairs and was used in place of a railing. It mimics a piece of furniture and the square design adds an interesting textural element to the area. Design by Guy and Karen Vidal, owners Design Vidal, Silver Lake, California.
