A minimalist home is both stylish and warm. Mid-century modern dining table is paired with sleek Eames tripod chairs, while a floating blue buffet provides much-needed storage yet maintains the open atmosphere of the home.
If your dining room is lacking in space or natural light, mirrors may be just what you need. Placing a mirror opposite the main light source will reflect light throughout the room and double the view to the outdoors.
Blue Roman shades on the windows that look out to the home’s garden entrance offer protection from the sun and privacy when desired, and coordinate with the blue ceramic tiles used for the kitchen’s backsplash. The spacious counter under the windows offers buffet space for entertaining. “There’s probably fourteen feet of unobstructed space to just lay out platters and drinks and cocktails for guests to enjoy,” says designer Brian Patrick Flynn.
This midcentury modern buffet is one of the highlights in a navy blue dining room with white coffered ceiling. A beveled mirror and tree-branch sconce lights hang on the wall behind it. A yellow-and-white rug with geometric patterns covers the floor in front of the buffet.
A charming nook sits just outside this transitional kitchen and is the perfect spot for the blue-gray buffet that matches the kitchen island. The kitchen's modern cabinets and glass pendant light pair well with the more traditional buffet and distressed mirror.
This navy blue midcentury modern dining room features burlap on the ceiling. It includes a midcentury buffet table for storage and display, along with a patterned area rug and curtains, both in yellow and white. A custom light fixture hangs above the round wooden dining table.
This buffet introduces a contemporary piece into the traditional style of the bedroom. The black frame compliments the mounted TV above while the silver metallic cabinet doors draw the eye and reflect natural light streaming in from the windows.
The neutral tones in this stylish living room are accented with soft blue from the roman shades, velvet stools and leather tufted coffee table. A brown shag rug matches the marble fireplace surround. Starbursts decorate the wall over a neutral buffet with a weaved cabinet door design.
