Designer Jenny Norris made a statement in the library with woodsy black and white wallpaper. A midcentury modern chaise is layered with Southwestern pillows and a flokati throw for an invitingly soft spot.
Give your version of midcentury style a more personal look by letting your home’s geographic location influence the design. For this house in Austin, Texas, for example, designer Christen Ales, chose colors and motifs that nod to the southwestern site—and yet still have a midcentury look. “The décor mixes fun bohemian patterns and textures, like this wallpaper from Cavern Home, with modern and more traditional Mexican style furniture silhouettes for a clean, but eclectic look,” she says.
